    Contact Form w/ Confirmation Page (missing something small)

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to ASP.NET, and reading through online materials such as this forum has really helped me gather a broad scope about what this language is and does. It's a great forum here, and I have referenced it many times.

    I am working on a basic contact form in ASPX with VB with four easy textboxes. On submit, I want the form to be sent to an e-mail address and have the sender be sent to a confirmation page. For the life of me, I cannot find the mistake that is causing my confirmation redirect to be unread. On submit, it always goes to my error page.

    I have already completed a form like this and have even tried working from this file; however, I cannot manage to find the solution. I am on a deadline of 24 hours to complete this, and I have already been pulling my hair for a few days. I know it's something so simple, yet my eyes are missing it from too much view probably. May someone lend me your eyes and review my code below? I would truly appreciate your time and help.

    I have the full page code attached, but the problem seems to only be in the scripting tags. For quick view, this is pasted below:

    <%@ Page language="VB" masterpagefile="orientation.master" title="New Student Orientation Request" %>
    <%@ MasterType VirtualPath="orientation.master" %>
    <%@ Import Namespace="System.Net.Mail" %>
    <asp:Content id="Content1" runat="server" contentplaceholderid="ContentPlaceHolder1">

    <script runat="server" type="text/vb">

    Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
    Dim currentDate As DateTime = DateTime.Now
    End If
    End Sub

    Protected Sub btnInsert_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
    If Page.IsValid Then
    Dim strFirstName, strLastName, strStudentNumber As String
    Dim strEmailAddress As String
    Dim mpContentPlaceHolder As ContentPlaceHolder
    Dim strFrom, strTo, strSubject, strBody As String
    Dim msgBody As String

    mpContentPlaceHolder = CType(Master.FindControl("ContentPlaceHolder1"), ContentPlaceHolder)

    strFirstName = Left(CType(mpContentPlaceHolder.FindControl("FirstName"), TextBox).Text, 25)
    strLastName = Left(CType(mpContentPlaceHolder.FindControl("LastName"), TextBox).Text, 25)
    strStudentNumber = Left(CType(mpContentPlaceHolder.FindControl("StudentNumber"), TextBox).Text, 7)
    strEmailAddress = Left(CType(mpContentPlaceHolder.FindControl("EmailAddress"), TextBox).Text, 50)

    msgBody = "First: " & strFirstName & vbCrLf & "Last: " & strLastName & vbCrLf & "Number: " & strStudentNumber & vbCrLf & "Email: " & strEmailAddress & vbCrLf &

    'Generate email
    Dim fromAddress As New MailAddress(strEmailAddress)
    Dim toAddress As New MailAddress("name@email.com")
    Dim msg As New MailMessage(fromAddress, toAddress)

    msg.Subject = "Orientation Cancellation Request"
    msg.Body = msgBody

    Dim mailSender As New SmtpClient()
    mailSender.Host = "www.host.com"
    Catch ex As Exception
    End Try

    End If
    End Sub


    Thank you again for any help you may have to offer. I would also like to help self-teach myself ASP.NET. If you have recommendations of books, that would be wonderful as well.

    All the best,
