I am trying to build a simple login form on an existing website I am getting these errors:
txtUser does not exist in the current context
txtPass does not exist in the current context
Literal1 does not exist in the current context

I will paste below first the form, then the codebehind

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="logIn.aspx.cs" Inherits="WebApplication1._Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

Untitled Page

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

protected void btnLogin_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

string connect = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0;Data Source=C:\Users\Christie\Desktop\WebApplication1\App_Data\prosearchusers.mdb";
string query = "Select Count(*) From tblCustRecords Where username = '" & txtUser & "' And [password] = '" & txtPass & "'";
int result = 0;
using (OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connect))
using (OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(query, conn))
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("Cust_Name", txtUser);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("Cust_Password", txtPass);
Session["User"] = txtUser;
result = (int)cmd.ExecuteScalar();
if (result > 0)
Literal1 = "Invalid login";


Can someone please help me, I really do not have much experience in .net programming
