    The Discussion

    • User profile image

      Whenever I run the application I get an error saying "Warning 1 Field 'By30Labs.RegistrationPage.MembersInfo' is never assigned to, and will always have its default value null C:\Users\Skuehl\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\By30Labs\By30Labs\RegistrationPage.xaml.cs." Visual Studio underlines the "MembersInfo" and says that is was never assigned. I followed your instructions in the video up to the inserttodoitem and I keep getting an this error message.

      private MobileServiceCollectionView<members> MembersInfo;

      I followed your instructions exactly. Why does the complier throw up an error after running the insert operation? Is Visual Studio 2012 not configured properly? Could your please answer my questions.
