Accessing ArrayList RRS feed

  • User1030888355 posted

    Hi ,


    I have an  arraylist which holds class objects , how I retrieve the object from the class ?

    here is my code.

    dim updateitem as class2 

    UpdateItem  = New Class2

    UpdateItem = cart2.Item(i)


    Here cart2 is the arraylist. I am not able to assign the first class object, which is also of the type class2 , to updateitem.

     I get the following error, when  i come upon the third line:

     System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Can anyone tell me how to go about this?.Thank You.

     first of all make sure cart2 is not null and there is an item at i

    dim updateitem as class2 

    if i <cart2.count andalso cart2.item(i) isnot nothing  then


    updateitem = Trycast(cart2.Item(i),class2)

    end if

    hi thanks a lot for your help.  I found out the error. I am taking the value of the arryalist from t a session object of the same type.  Since I intialized cart2 to the session value within if not(ispostback) , everytime the page reloads, I lose cart2's value when the page reloads.


    I corrected the error by initializing it outside the if statement.
