Call to Static Methods
You cannot call static method of a class using the object of the class*... You would have to call it using the Class name itself..
eg.You cannot call base class's static method using base.StaticMethod(); that shall result into an error...
the way you do it is:
//Class having Static Method
public class MyClass
public static string StaticMethod()
//Class using Static Method
public class ClientClass
public string GetHelpLineEmailId()
* This is applicable only to C# in case of VB.Net you can access static methods even using the object of the class... (This is what happens to a C# fan.... Thanks to Jacob Cynamon, MS and Kathleen Dollard, MVP for reminding... )
