MasterType TypeName Namespace Error

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hello, I'm trying to use a MasterType TypeName to access a class with master pages.  This works when I'm using .NET 2.0, VS 2005, and C#.  When I try this using .NET 3.5, VS 2008 and C# I get the error: The type or namespace name 'classA' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) and it is pointing to the Default.aspx.designer.cs In the default.aspx I have: <%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="... <%@ MasterType TypeName="classA" %> I have added a folder App_Code to my project and in that folder I have a class file "classA.cs" that contains: Using ... Namespace Project.App_Code {     public class classA : System.Web.UI.MasterPage ... The main difference that I see from where it works and where it doesn't work is that where it doesn't work it uses the namespace called Project. So I figure my problem is in the including the class classA in the namespace or properly including the namespace and / or App_Code directory in the MasterType TypeName which I don't seem to be able to figure out. Does anyone know what I may be doing wrong? Thanks, ron

Type or namespace error.


A couple of days ago I started getting an unusual behavior when compiling Website projects. I have referenced class libraries added to my bin folder that are also correctely referenced in using statements in my aspx.cs code behind. When I compile, I get the

I can eliminate the error by adding an


Error Consuming Web Service - Unable to import binding xxx from namespace ...


In VS2008 / C# / ASP.NET 3.5, I wrote a test web service app. Here is an extract from the code:

namespace emed.MathWebService
    /// <summary>
    /// Sample Math Services For Learning Web Services Deployment
    /// </summary>
    [WebService(Namespace = " http://localhost/MathService")]
    [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
    public class MathService
        public float Add(float a, float b)
            return a + b;


I have published this to an IIS virtual directory named MathService, and when I try to launch it with the URL http://localhost/mathservice/MathService.asmx is works fine and displays all the operations (Add, Subtract etc) in the service.

I then created a test web application in VS2008 (named WebSvcTe

Error Build: Type or namespace could not be found, when referencing a web service

Hello, I'm new in writing C# application in Visual Studio 2008. I'm currently writing a web application for CRM 4.0 Reporting Service rendering. I reference my web application to our Reporting Service web service http://reportservername /ReportServer/ReportExecution2005.asmx and name it 'RSWebReference'. Then I want to reference it in my code: Using RSWebReference; Not sure why, but I cannot build my solution, saying "The type or namespace name 'RSWebReference' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)". I read this thread in http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/74f70e30-83e8-4817-b5e0-7729450730a1 that the website probably is using .net 1.1, and I should change it to .net 2.0. However, I think the website is already using 2.0. Is it probably because I'm using VS 2008? How can I tell and change if the website is using 1.1 or 2.0? Or could I be doing something wrong? Thanks in advanced for your help! -Elizabeth K.

Need help with SOAP message and namespace error

I have a ASP.NET webservice which is called by a Java client. The client sends a SOAP message as input but the problem is that it never reaches my webservice method. I always get null as input. I used TraceListener and saw this warning which may cause the problem:

***The element was not expected in this context: <ListenerInput>..</ListenerInput>. Expected elements: http://client.ns.url/:ListenerInput.***

This is what the client sends:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <S:Envelope xmlns:S = "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
      <ns2:Listener xmlns:ns2 = "http://client.ns.url/">
          <firstPrice xsi:nil = "true" xmlns:xsi = "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"/>

And here's my webmethod:

VS 2010 and The type or namespace name 'AjaxControlToolkit' could not be found error?



I've installed VS2010 and I'm trying to compile my .NET 2.0 app. It went through a conversion process when I opened it, I made a backup, but I'm still targeting .NET 2.0 for now.  I have a project reference and the "ajaxcontroltoolkit.dll" in the \bin and it ran fine in VS 2008.  Do I need a different version of the toolkit I currently have (1.0.10301.0 which targets runtime v2.0.50727) to run .NET 2.0 in VS2010 now?

The error "The type or namespace name 'AjaxControlToolkit' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)"

The warning gives more info

"Warning 27 The primary reference "AjaxControlToolkit, Version=1.0.10301.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=28f01b0e84b6d53e, processorArchitecture=MSIL" could not be resolved because it has an indirect dependency on the framework assembly "System.Web.Extensions.Design, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" which could not be resolved in the currently targeted framework.

Classes and Namespaces - Error CS0101 the namespace already contains a definition for


I keep getting the error: Error message: CS0101: The namespace '<global namespace>' already contains a definition for 'checkvalue'.

Then, I rename the Inherits from the @page directive in both the .aspx and .aspx.cs pages and it works!

My website has only 2 pages, and both use the same class (same class name, exactly same syntax) but it has been copied and pasted and the 2 aspx pages (and aspx.cs pages) are not referencing each other.

In other words, both aspx.cs pages (called page1.aspx.cs and page2.aspx.cs) has the class

public class CheckValue
        return true;

Both the aspx pages reference the 'inherits' files seperately:

<%@ Page Language="C#" CodeFile="page1.aspx.cs" Inherits="_1" %>

and my code behind

public partial class _1 : System.Web.UI.Page

and for my second page

<%@ Page Language="C#" CodeFile="page2.aspx.cs" Inherits="_2" %>

and my code behind

public partial class _2 : System.Web.UI.Page

I don't use the .resx file.

Why does this error happen some times, and not other times?

Field type is not installed properly - CustomFieldType Error



Hi All,


I've been working on creating a custom field type on one of my companies WSS sites. The field is a supposed to be a RegEx text field. I've built my type using the book Developer's Guide to Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 Chapter 15 as my example.


I can post my code if needed, but figured I'd put out feelers before I went that far just to make sure that there isn't some common problem with loading custom field types that I should be aware of.


So far I've been able to get my custom field type to build and load into WSS but when I try to add the new type as a column in a list I get the error message -"Field type RegExpTextField is not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete this field. "


Thanks for any help


IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Error Code: 0x8007007b

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler

Module: IsapiModule

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ReportServer

Physical Path: c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\ReportServer

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:


CALL_ISAPI_EXTENSION DllName="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll"

Inserting personal error message in ValidationSummary



I am creating a web form that requires a lot of validation. I use many of the validation control in asp.net already like RequiredFieldValidator and CompareValidator. 

My Problem: after my custom validation for the value entered return an error message, and I pressed enter key when the field is empty, my custom error message is overlapped by my ValidationSummary. 

Setting my custom error to visible = false on button click also does not seem to work as it requires for me to enter the value first.

This made me think, is there a way to insert my custom validation inside the ValidationSummary as an error message like for other validation control?

Thanks in advance

Jscript error: Object does not support property or method


 Hi, i have little knowledge on javascript but i need to use this code get from somewhere for a jquery to work.

I face this "Jscript runtime error: Object does not support property or method" whenever im trying to run this page.

In my experience, im get this error msg 9 out of 10 times i use javascript in my system.

Im using Microsoft Visual web developer 2008, i wonder if this is related to my problem, i not sure there is anything i need to add as reference or update anything.

But anyway, in short, i just couldn't use javascript code when using this development tool because of this sort of error.

Anyway, it happen that last time i tried use the same type of jquery code in another project and it seems to work well without an error.

But now when im try to use it again in this recent project i created, it come out with this error and i have no idea how to solve it even look through google and this forum.

It doesn't really seems like its the code problem itself although im not sure, because any javascript code just couldn't work.

So below is my code that i need to use.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=&quo
