    error C3861: 'Create': identifier not found

    Hi guys,

    I need your help as I have a problem when I tried to debugging of the application.

    Here it's the code:

    // Form1.cpp
    using namespace System::Data;
    using namespace System::Drawing;
    using namespace System::Net;
    using namespace System::IO;
    using namespace System::Text;
    using namespace System::Web;
    using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;
    using namespace System::Text::RegularExpressions;
    using namespace System::Configuration;
    using namespace System::Collections::Generic;
    #include "StdAfx.h"
    #include "Form1.h"
    #include "Form2.h"
    using namespace MyApplication;  // Of course the namespace name would be Test in your project
    System::Void Form1::ListView1_DoubleClick(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e)
    	Form2 ^form2 = dynamic_cast<Form2 ^>(Owner);
    	//Address of URL
    	String ^URL = "" + form2->ComboBox1->Text + "&pass=" + form2->TextBox1->Text;
    	HttpWebRequest ^request = safe_cast<HttpWebRequest^>(WebRequest::Create(URL));
    	HttpWebResponse ^response = safe_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(request->GetResponse());
    	StreamReader ^reader = gcnew StreamReader(response->GetResponseStream());
    	String ^str = reader->ReadToEnd();
    The error I have got ('Create': identifier not found) is a member of a property called webRequest. The error are jumping on this line:

    HttpWebRequest ^request = safe_cast<HttpWebRequest^>(WebRequest::Create(URL));

    I don't know what to do.

    Any idea?

    This is not C++. This is managed C++ or C++/CLI, which do not belong in this forum. Tech board is typically the place for programming languages which has no dedicated forum. This is good to remember in the future.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
