Panel and Checkbox have been created and NullReferenceException wasthrown ...

Hello

I've the following code

Panel pnlData = new System.Windows.Forms.Panel();
CheckBox checkBox = new System.Windows.Forms.CheckBox();
checkBox.AutoSize = true;
checkBox.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Top;
checkBox.Name = "checkBox";
checkBox.TabIndex = 1;
checkBox.Text = "checkBox";
checkBox.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
try
{
pnlData.Container.Add(checkBox);
}
catch (NullReferenceException a)
{ }

And there the NullReferenceException will be thrown alwas.

Can me someone tell why?

Thanks for all

Hey there Wolfgang,

The problem is that container is null when you are trying to add. I'm
assuming you are wanting to make the checkbox appear in the panel, in which
case you actually just need to replace:

pnlData.Container.Add(checkBox);

with:

pnlData.Controls.Add(checkBox);

and that will place you checkbox onto the panel control. Hope that helps!

Hi Wolfgang,

Thanks for posting!

From the snippets of the current code, I have added the code into the Form
Load event in my own application. I can not reproduce the current issue
because all codes work fine. So I think maybe the null reference error is
related to the context for the current application. Could you please make a
simple demo and send it to me? This will help me to repro the current issue
and find some factors. My alias is v-****@online.microsoft.com (remove
..online). Thanks for your understanding!

I'm looking forward your reply.

I have just installed the very last Studio-Version 8.0.50727.42
(RTM.050727-4200) - German.

And realy: If I use pnlTreeData.Container.Add(checkBox), then the
command throws an error and if I use pnlTreeData.Controls.Add(checkBox),
the program works well.

I have used Container because this command will be used if i put a
Checkbox from the toolbox to the panel manually.

Ok, I'll use Container.

Best Regards
