Control in Master Page.. "Name lblStatus is not declared"


[ASP.Net, VS2005] I have a label control in my master page like this:
<asp:Label ID=lblStatusMessage runat="server"></asp:Label>

When I reference the control in my code-behind I get this error
"Name 'lblStatusMessage' is not declared"

If I add a declaration for it at the top of my partial class like so:
Protected lblStatusMessage As System.Web.UI.WebControls.Label

then I get this error:
'lblStatusMessage' is already declared as 'Protected Dim WithEvents
lblStatusMessage As System.Web.UI.WebControls.Label' in this class.

This happens even I drag a control into the masterpage from the toolbox. Any
ideas?? Thanks!

I am using Web Application Projects, and it appears that this master page
does not have a designer (I have "show all docs" turned on, and I can see
the vb class but not the designer). Not sure where it went, or how I could
create a new one?

Hi Monty,

Based on my understanding, you're having trouble to correctly add controls
to the master page and reference them in code-behind.

I just tried it on two different VS2005: one with the Web Application
Project add-on, one with VS2005 SP1 (which already integrated the Web
Application Project add-on); both work correctly for the master page and
show the .master.designer.vb correctly in solution explorer.

Does this issue only exists in one of your project or it exists in even a
simplest new project?
