I need your help, if it is possibe.

I need to check if already exists a employer in the list with same code entered in the textbox.

I have a list of employers, and I add employers like this :
else if (cb_type.Text == type1.text)

     type1 typeone = new typeone(Convert.ToInt32(tb_Code.Text), tb_Name.Text, Convert.ToDateTime(dateTimePicker1.Text), cb_Sex.Text, tb_Adress.Text, Convert.ToInt32(tb_Phone.Text), tb_Email.Text, pictureBox1.Image);

In the moment that i add a new employer i need to verify if already exists a employer with the same code that is entered in textbox.

I try this :
foreach (employer E in Lemployer)
      if tb_code.text == E.getCode())
 "Code Already exists");

But this isn't working, someone can help me doing this?

First off, please use proper Parse or TryParse methods rather than Convert.
Second, please use proper controls for what you need rather than TextBoxes for everything.
What does getCode do?

thank for your answer,

getCode is a method in the employer class, like this :

public int getCode()
return Code;

It should be a property with getter.
