"Unknown Property" Error When Setting Public Variable

I'm attempting to set a value for the custom variable "recordOwner".  When I click the "changeOwner" button below, I get the error:

 

"Error: Unknown property 'myLeadConvert.recordOwner'"

 

Any ideas on where I've gone wrong (presumabley a get/set issue):

 

apex:page standardController="Lead" extensions="myLeadConvert" title="Lead">
    <apex:outputField value="{!lead.Company}" rendered="false" />
    <apex:outputField value="{!lead.OwnerId}" rendered="false" />
    <apex:outputField value="{!lead.IsConverted}" rendered="false" />
    <apex:form id="theForm">  
        <apex:pageBlock title="Convert Lead - {!lead.Name} - Confirm Ownership" mode="maindetail">
            <apex:pageMessages escape="false"  />

            <apex:pageBlockSection title="Set Owner" columns="2" collapsible="false" >
				<apex:pageBlockSectionItem >
	        	<apex:outputLabel value="Opportunity Owner" for="userList"/>
	                 <apex:selectList value="{!recordOwner}" id="userList" size="1" >
	                     <apex:selectOptions value="{!userList}" />
	                 </apex:selectList>
				</apex:pageBlockSectionItem>
				<apex:pageBlockSectionItem />
				<apex:commandButton action="{!changeOwner}" value="Change Owner" />
            </apex:pageBlockSection>

            <apex:commandButton action="{!cancel}" value="Cancel" />            
        </apex:pageBlock>     
    </apex:form>
</apex:page>

 

public with sharing class myLeadConvert {
    public Lead myLead;
	public genHelpers gh;
	public sfMailer um;

	// record owner
    public User recordOwner;

    public uptimeLeadConvert (ApexPages.StandardController stdController) {

        if(this.myLead.IsConverted == true) {

                this.myLead.addError( 'ERROR: The lead has already been converted, you cannot convert again' );
	            pg         = new PageReference('/apex/myConvLeadView?id=' + this.myLead.Id);
	            pg.setRedirect(true);
            }
            return pg;
        }



    // Record Owner Routines for created Account/Contact/Opp
		public List<SelectOption> getUserList() { 
			Profile p = this.gh.getProfile('up.time Sales User');
			List<User> uList = [select Id, Name from User where IsActive = true AND ProfileId  = :p.Id AND UserType = 'Standard' order by Name];
			List<SelectOption> selList = new List<SelectOption>();
			
			//if(this.getRecordOwner() <> null)
			//	selList.add(new SelectOption(String.valueOf(this.recordOwner.Id), this.getRecordOwner().Name));
			selList.add(new SelectOption('', '--None--'));
				
	        for(User u : uList) 
	            selList.add(new SelectOption(String.valueOf(u.Id), u.Name));
			return selList;
		}   
    
		public User getRecordOwner() {
	    	if(this.recordOwner == null)
	    		this.recordOwner = [select Id, Name from User where Id = :this.myLead.OwnerId];
			return this.recordOwner;
		}

	    public void setRecordOwner(User myRecordOwner) {
	        this.recordOwner = myRecordOwner;
	    }	




}

Thanks chamil.

 

I ended up using your suggestion, but changed it to :

 

public Id recordOwnerId{get;set;} 

 which seemed to work better with the select list options we'd built out.

 

Thanks for your help!
