    hi there , yesterday i spend alot of time to understand and convert this article from vb to c#

    but some problem face me in C# code for the asp.net page code



    //Determine which control fired the postback event. 
            Control c = GetPostBackControl(Page);
            if ((c != null))
                //If the add button was clicked, increase 
                //the count to let the page know we want
                //to display an additional user control
                if (c.ID.ToString == "btnAdd")
                    ltlCount.Text = Convert.ToInt16(ltlCount.Text) + 1;


    this part give me message said GetPostBackControl , doesn't exist  , what is GetPostBackControl should be in C# , or i miss something


    second problem


    WebUserControl DynamicUserControl = LoadControl("WebUserControl.ascx");

     i can't find the namespace for webusercontrol , i tried to see which namespace this class belong to , but its frustrated me so badly



    the third problem


    string[] DeletedList = ltlRemoved.Text.Split("|");
            for (int i = 0; i <= DeletedList.GetLength(0) - 1; i++)
                if (ControlID.ToLower == DeletedList(i).ToLower)
                    return true;
            return false;


    something wrong at the first line , is it should be like that with C#


    sorry for my long question my helpers , but am try to understand

    by the way here is the original code in VB at this lesson

    First of all I would suggest that you download the code and use that vb code and convert it using this and if you still encounter problem do let me know.

    I can see a few problems that the online converter should have caught for you:

    1. "c.ID.ToString" needs to change to "c.ID.ToString()"

    2. "ltlRemoved.Text.Split("|")" needs to change to "ltlRemoved.Text.Split('|')"

    3. "if (ControlID.ToLower == DeletedList(i).ToLower)" needs to change to "if (ControlID.ToLower() == DeletedList(i).ToLower())"


    Try a better converter - most of the online converters are not actively maintained - the problems I outlined above are some of the most trivial issues in VB to C# conversion.

    thank you for fixing but i correct most of them through searching for each object , but i really get lost with this few lines , i need extra help because i have no patient to search more by my self , i need experts to help me

    here is this line is have some problem when convert it from VB to C#


    //Add an event handler to this control to raise an event when the delete button is clicked
    //on the user control
    DynamicUserControl.RemoveUserControl +=this.HandleRemoveUserControl;
    	//Finally, add the user control to the panel

    so i found on msdn that UserControl class is contain method called RemovedControl , but i really find it not exist in my visual studio 2008 , and here is the starting of instructing this object i called it DynamicUserControl


    UserControl DynamicUserControl =(UserControl)LoadControl("WebUserControl.ascx");

    i really tried to know why in visual basic we can instruct it as  WebUserControl , but in C# i can't find class called WebUserControl , but this work too i changed in visual basic from webusercontrol class to usercontrol and its work the same , but i can't use any method like RemovedUsercontrol

    i'm looking for idea about what i have face now , its messy codes
