Trying to convert Razor to ASPX.


  • i am doing a simple (I think) tutorial for MVC.  The only issue is the tutorial uses Razor and I need to use ASPX.  Job I'm looking at uses it.

    I have spent hours looking over the internet for possibilities but I am still getting this error:

    Compilation Error


    Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately.

    Compiler Error Message: CS1061: 'object' does not contain a definition for 'Name' and no extension method 'Name' accepting a first argument of type 'object' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

    The code is:
