    If I try to enter a new event and then click cancel without entering something, I receive

    Replace Lines 55-59 with this:

    id = Request.QueryString("EventID")

    If Not id Is Nothing Then


    m_EventID = DirectCast(id, Integer)


    m_EventID = 1

    End Try


    m_EventID = 1

    End If

    - Will

    The actual cause of this problem is as follows:

    From the Events page, click on Add New Event. This takes you to the Events_edit.aspx page.

    If you next click on Cancel, you will get the above error.

    This is because the Cancel action is trying to go to the Events_View page when in fact it should be going to events_calendar.aspx - where you started from.

    The are two places on the Events_edit.aspx page that need to be changed where the following two lines of code are - that have to do with Adding a new event:

    <Club:RolloverButton ID="apply1" CommandName="Insert" Text="Add Event" runat="server" />

    <Club:RolloverLink ID="Cancel" Text="Cancel" runat="server" NavigateURL='<%#

    "Events_view.aspx?EventID=" & Cstr(Eval("ID"))  %>' />

    The 2nd line needs to be:

    <Club:RolloverLink ID="Cancel" Text="Cancel" runat="server" NavigateURL='<%#

    "Events_calendar.aspx"  %>' />

    Again, there are two places where these lines of code exit, because there are Add Event / Cancel buttons at the top and bottom of the page.

    Now NOTE:

    If you start on the Events page, and click an event link on some date, this takes you to Events_view.aspx.  Now, if you then click on Edit .. you are again on the Events_edit.aspx page. From here, if you click Cancel, it works fine (no error) because it takes you back to the Events_view.aspx page where it should ... and the ID exists (not null).

    There is also another minor bug:

    From the Events page, click on Add New Event.

    This takes you to Events_Edit.aspx page.

    Now, click on Add New Event (on this page). You get a page not found error ... because ... its trying to go to Event_edit.aspx instead of Events_edit.aspx (the 's' is missing in the first case-no doubt a typo).
