I have reason to believe there is a bug in Webmatrix where the visual representation of the code is no longer in sync with whatever keeps the code behind the screen.
See my earlier thread and on top of that again today I had another situation where the compiler kept complaining about a non existent variable.
In the code window it was obvious the variable is there, yet the compiler moans about it not being there.
I got suspicious so I installed Webmatrix on a different machine. Copied the folder over and voila the single line the compiler was moaning about
was not there.
Put the single line of code back in and it compiles fine.
I have a couple of screen shots I can send someone if they are interested.
My conclusion is that if you are seeing unexplained error message it could very well be that what you see on the screen is not what the compiler is working with.
One point of caution, the old install of WebMatrix was on a server and I was connecting from a client via RDP.
Could this bug possibly be related to the earlier reported slow typing bug?
