    { 
       public partial class SavingClass :  Form1 
       { 
          private StreamWriter fileWriter; // writes datea to text file 
          private FileStream output; // maintains connection  to file 
     
     
            //pramaterless constructor 
            public SavingClass() 
            { 
                [U][I][B]InitializeComponent(); [/B][/I][/U]     // <-------this line code has  blue 
                                                                     underline and shows the
