Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Hello,

I have some code which simply reads a RSS with the
XmlTextReader and XmlDocument. Unfortunaly I get the error:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Here is my simple code:

private function CheckRSS(byval strRSS as string)
Dim reader as new XmlTextReader(s trRSS)
Dim xmlDoc as XmlDocument

Try
xmlDoc.Load(rea der)
Catch ex As Exception
Response.Write( "ERR in Rss File:" & strRSS
& "<br>")
Response.Write( "Err: RSS File:" & ex.Message
& "<br>")
Exit Function
End Try

' load only the item nodes
Dim nodes As XmlNodeList = xmlDoc.SelectNo des
("/rss/channel/item")

For Each node As XmlNode In nodes
Try
Dim strPostTitle as string = node
("title").Inner Xml
Dim strPost as string = node
("description") .InnerXml
Dim strPostURL as string = node
("link").InnerX ml
Dim strPostDate as string = node
("pubDate").Inn erXml

response.write( strPostTitle & "<br>")
Catch ex As Exception
Response.Write( "ERR in loading nodes: " &
ex.Message() & "<br>")
Exit Function
End Try
Next
end function

Can anybody tell me why I get this error?

Thanks

XmlDocument xmlDoc is declared, but it is not instantiated(ne w
XmlDocument()),

Hello =) I have an object which contains a method that should execute every x ms. I can use setInterval inside the object construct like this - self.setInterval('ObjectName.methodName()', this.pinginterval); - but is there no way to do this without using the literal ObjectName? If I write 'this.methodName()' I get "Line 1 Char 1: Object doesn't support this property or method." in IE, and nothing happens in Firebird.

I'd like to be able to get the name of an object instance from within a call to a method of that same object. Is this at all possible?

Here are some questions that i am interested about and wanted to here an explanation/discussion: 1. (general) Is the objectness in JavaScript was supported from the very first version of it (in browsers) ? What about the new syntax of creating a object using { 'propName1':'propValue1', 'propName2':'propValue2', 'propName3':{ /* another object */ } } - from what version of JScript/JavaScript it was supported (from what browsers versions) ?...

Hi all, I've got a little hole in my head concerning references. Here's what I'm trying to do: I'm calling a function, passing the reference of a business object for editing. The function clones the object, calls an editor dialog to let the user edit the object, and then - depending on the DialogResult - assigns either the clone/backup copy or the modified object itself to the reference. Maybe I'm thinking too much in pointer references...

A global variable is really just a property of the "Global Object", so what does that make a function defined in the global context? A method of the Global Object? http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Core_JavaScript_1.5_Guide:Defining_Functions doesn't actually give any insight.
