Passing values from a listbox into a textbox (Driving me crazy!)
Posted on 2004-08-26
This problem is driving me crazy since I know its just a little stupid thing.
I need to know why my code is not working.
All I want to do is pass the selected item in a listbox into a textbox surely this can't be hard?
Here is my listbox
<asp:listbox AutoPostBack="true" DataValueField="QuestionID" Height="500" ID="lstQuestions" runat="server" SelectionMode="single" Width="70" OnSelectedIndexChanged="Testing"></asp:listbox>
Here is a test procedure
Sub Testing(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
lblDisplay.Text = lstQuestions.SelectedItem.Text
Here is the error message
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. (WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?)
I am using Dreamweaver MX, not visual studio
I am using VB.NET
Your help getting through this error will be much apreciated.
The listbox contains a numeric ID
