pass DBNull.Value as paramter of type object

I would like to pass a DataRow column value to a method that accepts an
object parameter :

MyMethod( object value ) {}
However, a problem occurs if the column value is DBNull.Value

MyMethod( DataRow["MyCol"] );
A null reference exception is thrown in this case.

What is the reason that a DBNull.Value can't be passed as a parameter of
type object ?

MyMethod( DataRow["MyCol"] );

It can.
Are you sure that DataRow is non null and that the column is spelt
correctly? Other than that, the bug is in some of the code not shown.

Hi, Something I don't understand about a Typed DataSet: When a value in the DataSet is DBNull, it throws this error: "Cannot get value because it is DBNull". But aren't Typed DataSets invented to make life easier, to be able to get to tge Tables and Values with less code, in less time? But with this thing you need to add a Try-Catch around every statement when using the value, add for each value a default value in your DataSet (and...

I have properties that wrap DataRow columns as in: public int aNumber { get{ return m_DataRow; } set{ m_DataRow = value; } } If the column happens to contain DBNull, I get a cast exception since DBNull cannot be converted to int. I wrote the following method that looks up the column's data type and if it is a ValueType, returns the default value for the ValueType.

Hello, I'm a bit surprised at the amount of boilerplate code required to do standard data access in .NET and was looking for a way to improve matters. In Classic ASP, I used to have a common function that was included in all pages that took an SQL query and returned a disconnected recordset. This meant that data access could be achieved in a single line. I would like to do something similar in ASP.NET. I know I could just duplicate...

I have a value coming from my Object (or it could also be from a SqlDbReader) where I need to test for DBNull and 0. I tried to do it in one call: if (not (newPosition.ReportsTo is DBNull.Value)) andalso (newPosition.ReportsTo <> 0) then The first time I did it I used "and" and got the following error. Operator is not valid for type 'DBNull' and type 'Integer'.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
