    Unhappy having touble with creating a game in c#

    hi i am creating a game at the moment using visual studio where a bike collects medals from moving up down left right ect.. and i have been getting an error in the code which is the following could you please help me solve this as i don't understand why this keeps appearing. i'm trying to make it so that once the bike moves to the medal it will remove the medal from the page.

    Inconsistent accessibility: parameter type 'bikegame.medal' is less accessible than method 'bikegame.MainPage.Addmedal(bikegame.medal)'

    Code:
    Code:
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Net;
    using System.Windows;
    using System.Windows.Controls;
    using System.Windows.Documents;
    using System.Windows.Input;
    using System.Windows.Media;
    using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
    using System.Windows.Shapes;
    using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;
    using bikegame.Web;
    
    namespace bikegame
    {
        public partial class MainPage : UserControl
        {
            bike mybike;
            medal mymedal;
    
            private int medalTimer = 0;
            int medalCount = 0;
            List<medal> medal;
    
            public MainPage()
            {
                InitializeComponent();
                mybike = new bike();
                mymedal = new medal();
    
                InitializeComponent();
                medal = new List<medal>();
                CompositionTarget.Rendering += new EventHandler(CompositionTarget_Rendering);
    
                Image myImg = new Image();
                myImg.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri("bike.png", UriKind.Relative));
                myImg.Width = 80;
                myImg.Height = 60;
                mybike.Content = myImg;
                layoutRoot.Children.Add(mybike);
                Canvas.SetLeft(mybike, 100);
                Canvas.SetTop(mybike, 50);
                layoutRoot.Children.Add(mymedal);
                CompositionTarget.Rendering += new EventHandler(CompositionTarget_Rendering);
            }
    
           
    
             public void Addmedal(medal a)
             {
                 medal.Add(a);
                 layoutRoot.Children.Add(a);
             }
    
             public void Removemedal(medal a)
             {
                 medal.Remove(a);
                 layoutRoot.Children.Remove(a);
             }

    "is less accessible than method"
    You didn't specified the access status of your variables so the compiler doesn't know what to do. If you don't know what to put, set them to public, you won't have any problems (though accessibily requires a bit of pre-thinking before coding )

    Code:
            public bike mybike;
            public medal mymedal;

    Just a side note:
    I see your classes are named "bike" or "medal".
    This is inconsistent with the standard naming conventions in C#, where classes start with uppercase letters. I think you should change this.

    Well, no... the compiler knows what to do; it makes them private, because private is the default access modifier, but that has nothing to do with the compiler error the OP is getting anyway.

    You've got a private type (bikegame.medal) as a parameter to a public method (Addmedal). This obviously won't work as you need the definition of bikegame.medal to call the method. You need to make your bikegame.medial type public.

    Erendar, on a side note, please do not suggest to simply make everything public. Your solution doesn't even solve this problem, but "public by default" is a terrible design choice and there is no reason to make what should be private, instance fields public.
