) expected

An incomplete statement was found.

A common cause of this error is placing a statement, rather than an expression, within an inline expression in an ASP.NET page. For example, the following is incorrect:

<%=new TimeSpan(DateTime.Now.Ticks - new DateTime(2001, 1, 1).Ticks).Days;%>  

The following is correct:

<%=new TimeSpan(DateTime.Now.Ticks - new DateTime(2001, 1, 1).Ticks).Days %>  

It is interpreted as follows:

<% Response.Write(new TimeSpan(DateTime.Now.Ticks - new DateTime(2001, 1, 1).Ticks).Days); %>  

The following example generates CS1026:

// CS1026.cs  
#if (a == b   // CS1026, add closing )  
#endif  
  
class x  
{  
   public static void Main()  
   {  
   }  
}
