    I get the following error message in Visual Studio:
    'EditPage' is ambiguous because of multiple kinds of members with this name exist in class 'Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Pages.PageManager'.

    I took the C# example found in the documentation for Creating Pages (which follows):

    public const string UrlNameCharsToReplace = @"[^\w\-\!\$\'\(\)\=\@\d_]+";
    public const string UrlNameReplaceString = "-";
    public bool CreatePage( Guid pageId, string pageName )
        var pageDataId = Guid.NewGuid();
        PageManager manager = PageManager.GetManager();
        bool exists = manager.GetPageNodes().Where( n => n.Id == pageId ).SingleOrDefault() != null;
        if ( exists )
            return false;
        PageData pageData = manager.CreatePageData( pageDataId );
        pageData.HtmlTitle = pageName;
        pageData.Title = pageName;
        PageNode parent = manager.GetPageNode( SiteInitializer.FrontendRootNodeId );
        PageNode pageNode = manager.CreatePage( parent, pageId, NodeType.Standard );
        pageNode.Page = pageData;
        pageNode.Name = pageName;
        pageNode.Title = pageName;
        pageNode.UrlName = Regex.Replace( pageName.ToLower(), UrlNameCharsToReplace, UrlNameReplaceString );
        pageNode.ShowInNavigation = true;
        pageNode.DateCreated = DateTime.UtcNow;
        pageNode.LastModified = DateTime.UtcNow;
        manager.RecompileItemUrls<PageNode>( pageNode );
        var draft = manager.EditPage( pageData.Id, true );
        manager.PublishPageDraft( draft, true, null );
        return true;


    I then ran that code through the Telerik's C# to VB converter and got the following code:



        Public Const UrlNameCharsToReplace As String = "[^\w\-\!\$\'\(\)\=\@\d_]+"
        Public Const UrlNameReplaceString As String = "-"

        Public Function CreatePage(ByVal pageId As Guid, ByVal pageName As String) As Boolean
            Dim pageDataId = Guid.NewGuid()
            Dim manager As PageManager = PageManager.GetManager()

            Dim exists As Boolean = manager.GetPageNodes().Where(Function(n) n.Id = pageId).SingleOrDefault() IsNot Nothing

            If exists Then
                Return False
            End If

            Dim pageData As PageData = manager.CreatePageData(pageDataId)
            pageData.HtmlTitle = pageName
            pageData.Title = pageName

            Dim parent As PageNode = manager.GetPageNode(SiteInitializer.FrontendRootNodeId)
            Dim pageNode As PageNode = manager.CreatePage(parent, pageId, NodeType.Standard)
            pageNode.Page = pageData
            pageNode.Name = pageName
            pageNode.Title = pageName
            pageNode.UrlName = Regex.Replace(pageName.ToLower(), UrlNameCharsToReplace, UrlNameReplaceString)
            pageNode.ShowInNavigation = True
            pageNode.DateCreated = DateTime.UtcNow
            pageNode.LastModified = DateTime.UtcNow

            manager.RecompileItemUrls(Of PageNode)(pageNode)

            Dim draft = manager.EditPage(pageData.Id, True)

            'manager.PublishPageDraft(draft, True, Nothing)     'This code is from Sitefinity's example, which is apparently, now obsolete.
            manager.PublishPageDraft(draft, Nothing)

            Return True
        End Function


    The line that generates the error is:


    Dim draft = manager.EditPage(pageData.Id, True)






    Any ideas?

    Hello John,

    When you get the ambiguous error you should click on it to see at which line is the ambiguous reference.
    For example you can say
    manager.Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Pages.PageManager.EditPage( pageData.Id, true );
    This way Edit will know specifically which of the referenced assemblies to use to call EditPage method.
    Best wishes,
