vb.net "Name is not declared" question

P: n/a
ST
Hi,
I'm new to vb.net programming, and I keep getting this error: Name
'GetQuery' is not declared. I can't figure out why?? It seems like I have
the right references/namespaces. This is my code below. Also, can someone
explain to me what the ContentHandlerImpl.vb file actually does? It's in
this project that I'm working with...but I'm not sure what the file actually
does. Thanks!!

Well, what GetQuery are you trying to call? You've shown the attempt to
call it, but no declaration for it.

What do you mean exactly? Sorry, this is code that somebody else did, and
they told me to just add it into an existing project we have.

Then you need to ask them for the GetQuery method as well - and then
start learning VB.NET from scratch, rather than from existing code. I
know it's harsh, but learning from first principles is much more likely
to get you a good firm foundation in the language (and the framework).

The getquery method seems to be under Lucene.net.search when I look in the
object browser. (Lucene.net.search.topdocs>weight..and when I highlight
weight, I see it on the right).

So it seems like it's there...so I don't know why the error is coming up?

As far as learning vb.net from scratch...I WISH that was an option for me
right now, but unfortunately it's not and I'm forced to learn it on my own in
as little time as possible for my job :( but I'm trying!!! The more
questions I ask, the more I seem to figure out...

Do you have any suggestions for good books to help me with this? I have the
Microsoft Press Visual Basic.NET step by step...but I'm only working with web
applications, not windows, and it only has a little section in there on web
apps...and it's not very detailed.

I actually figured out that issue by including this file (LuceneUtils.vb)
into the project. It has this code:
Imports System.Xml
Imports Lucene.Net.Documents
Imports Lucene.Net.Analysis
Imports Lucene.Net.Index

Imports Lucene.Net.Search
Imports Lucene.Net.QueryParsers
Imports Lucene.Net.Util
Imports System
Imports System.IO

Module LuceneUtils
Public Function getParser(ByRef a As Analyzer) As QueryParser
If (a Is Nothing) Then
a = New SimpleAnalyzer
End If
Dim qp As QueryParser = New QueryParser("body", a)
qp.SetOperator(QueryParser.DEFAULT_OPERATOR_OR)
Return qp
End Function

Public Function getQuery(ByVal query As String, ByRef a As Analyzer) As
Query
Return getParser(a).Parse(query)
End Function
End Module

But NOW....when I try and debug, I'm getting this error:

Parser Error
Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to
service this request. Please review the following specific parse error
details and modify your source file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Could not load type 'biopsy._default'.

Source Error:
Line 1: <%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="menu" Src="menu.ascx" %><%@
Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="default.aspx.vb"

Line 2: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
Line 3: <HTML>
Source File: c:\inetpub\wwwroot\biopsy\default.aspx Line: 1
Any ideas why this is happening? If you have time, can you explain to me
what exactly that Luceneutil file is for, and why it's affecting the rest of
my files now? Thanks!!

I haven't used Lucene for .NET - but I suggest you read their
documentation, and/or ask the colleague who passed the task on to you.

But by learning it from scratch, you'll save yourself time in the long
run even within your job. If you learn properly, you'll have far fewer
questions - you may find it takes longer to get to your 10th line of
code, but by the 1000th you'll be saving time.

That doesn't matter at all. You should be learning the *language*
first, then the very *core* classes (IO and collections spring to
mind). After that, learning ASP.NET or Windows Forms is just a layer
which uses the rest.
