Control does not exist in the current context error in VS 2008

    Control does not exist in the current context error in VS 2008

    I am testing out the free download and have not yet purchased a license.  Not sure if that effects what I am doing.
     
    I have included the Editor in my page and it shows up fine when I run the page.  But when I try to access the control in my code-behind file I get an error saying "The name 'Editor1' does not exist in the current context."
     
    I also noticed that there is no Intellisense in the code behind but in the ASPX file the Intellisense is there for the various options in the tag.  It seems that the Editor control is not being included in the aspx.designer.cs file which could be causing it.
     
    How can I get this to work.  I am using Visual Studio 2008 on a Vista computer.
     
    Also, once I get it working, I'm assuming that the Text property is what I will use to get the HTML that was created?
     
    Thanks,

    ASPX PAGE
    -----------------------------------------
     
    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="TestEditor.aspx.cs" Inherits="CMS.TestEditor" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="CE" Namespace="CuteEditor" Assembly="CuteEditor" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

            <asp:Literal ID="htmlText" runat="server" />
        </div>
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>
     
    -------------------------------
    CODE BEHIND
    -------------------------------
    using System;
    using System.Collections;
    using System.Configuration;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.Security;
    using System.Web.UI;
    using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
    using System.Xml.Linq;

    namespace CMS
    {
        public partial class TestEditor : System.Web.UI.Page
        {
            protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {

            }

            protected void submitButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                htmlText.Text = cuteEditor.Text;
            }
        }
    }
     
     -----------------------
     DESIGNER FILE
    --------------------------
    namespace CMS {
       
        public partial class TestEditor {
            
            /// <summary>
            /// form1 control.
            /// </summary>
            /// <remarks>
            /// Auto-generated field.
            /// To modify move field declaration from designer file to code-behind file.
            /// </remarks>
            protected global::System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlForm form1;
        }
    }
     
    ----------------------------
     
    So as you can see the controls aren't getting added to the designer file so it doesn't know about the controls in the code behind file.
     
    This is the error that I am getting when I try to run the page.
     
    Error    4    The name 'htmlText' does not exist in the current context    C:\Projects\CMS\CMS\TestEditor.aspx.cs    25    13    CMS
    Error    5    The name 'cuteEditor' does not exist in the current context    C:\Projects\CMS\CMS\TestEditor.aspx.cs    25    29    CMS
     
    If I get rid of the Editor control then it runs and the designer file has the appropriate controls in it.
     
     
    Thanks,

    Hi Jeff,
     
    If you use Cute Editor in a web application, Please add reference for CuteEditor.dll

    That was it.  I had the DLL's in the bin but forgot to add the reference.
     
    Thanks!

    Dear jtreuting,
     
    Did you "Add Reference" to CuteEditor.dll? 
    Please save the following example to test.aspx, and then run this example, can you reproduce this issue?
     
    <%@ Page Language="C#"%>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="CE" Namespace="CuteEditor" Assembly="CuteEditor" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

     <body>
            <form id="Form1" runat="server">   
            <CE:Editor id="Editor1" runat="server" ></CE:Editor><BR>
            <asp:Button id="btnUpdate" onclick="Submit" Runat="server" Text="Submit"></asp:Button><br />   
         <asp:textbox id="textbox1" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine" Height="250px" Width="750px" Font-Name="Arial"></asp:TextBox> 
      </form>
     </body>
    </html>
    <script runat="server">
     void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
     {       
     }
     public void Submit(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

    Re: Control does not exist in the current context error in VS 2008

    Hello,
     
    I have already added a reference. If I create a separate test page, I get a blank screen. If I use it within my code, I get the context error. I am using VS 2005, are the settings different for VS 2005?
     
    Please help, I have been struggling with this for a week now.
     
    Thanks
    Melrine
