Null Exception on Insert Into MySql RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1402564948 posted


    I recently moved to a new server and I'm trying to use a MySql Database rather than MSSQL as coded for.

    My server is sharing several domains and those domains are sharing the database.

    Whenever I click the button, It always gives me a null reference.  There are records being added to the table, but not the values.  Only the Int.

    I've checked to make sure I have mysql.data.sqlclient and related assemblies.

    I guess one of my questions would be ... should I be using localhost or the main server ip address?  Should I be using the server name rather than the ip address?  Does it matter?

    Protected Sub PostWall2_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
            Dim strConnString As [String] = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("Server=********;Database=******;UID=******;Pwd=*********").ConnectionString
            Dim con As New MySqlConnection(strConnString)
            Dim strQuery As String = "INSERT [INTO] Wall [(Body, wURL, Id)];"
            Dim cmd As New MySqlCommand(strQuery)
            'You need to use the GetUserId() method to get the userid value
            Using myConnection As New MySqlConnection("Server=******;Database=********;UID=*******;Pwd=********")
                Dim myCommand As New MySqlCommand(strQuery, myConnection)
                'myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Subject", Subject.Text.Trim())
                cmd.Parameters.Add(New MySqlParameter("@Body", Body.Text.Trim))
                cmd.Parameters.Add(New MySqlParameter("@wURL", wURL.Text.Trim))
                cmd.Parameters.Add(New MySqlParameter("@Id", User.Identity.GetUserId().ToString))
            End Using
            'Subject.Text = String.Empty
            Body.Text = String.Empty
            wURL.Text = String.Empty
            SettingsUpdatedMessage.Visible = True
        End Sub
    <div id="HPDiv" runat="server" class="PostDivTop" visible="false" style="background-color: lightgrey;">

    So, I've switched to an ODBC Connection.  I'm now connecting remotely, but I still get the null exception error.

    Obviously, something is null somewhere.  Any thoughts?  Am I not getting the userid correctly?  Am I not inserting something?
