Compiler Error: Can't find 'Eval'

By James Hippolite, in , posted: 11-Apr-2008 11:31

I just learned a new factoid:

If I copy a page and rename it, but don't rename the Class name, then the two pages will compile and run in DEV but not in TEST.

The error message was bizarre: couldn't find the Eval or Bind verbs.  When I fixed these, then it couldn't find the Title or MasterPageFile attributes.  This got me thinking.

The solution of course was to rename the second class name to something unique.

I too have been caught out by this weird behaviour.

Just remember when you copy a page to rename the code behind class.

Here, I attempt to distill the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer knowledge I have accumulated since first qualifying MCP in 1996.  This blog started on 13 September 2007 as an off-shoot from my mixed up personal blog.  But it took a shot in the arm from Scott Hanselman's talk at TechEd New Zealand 08 "32 Ways To Make Your Blog Suck Less".
