“Object reference not set to an instance of an object”

I’m not usually one to make my ignorance publicly known.

Okay, if you’ve seen any amount of my posts here or there then you know that’s pretty much a lie. I’m learning, right? Well, this is a learning experience for me, and the lesson for today is that the error message at the top of this post is probably one of the few things I hate about .NET.

Sure, it’s my code. I’ve got an error somewhere, and the runtime is telling me “Yo, instantiate the object over here, you moron!” But sometimes I want to pack 5 or 6 objects into a method call because it’s easier and I’ve made something similar work before. “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”. Which one, dammit?!?

I would really like it if comments could be posted on my little spin of InfiniBlog(web). But I can’t. Why? “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”. What a putz I am. grumble
