Sub createArray(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
      
Dim cnn2 As String = (ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("SomeWebSite"))
Dim objConnection2 as new sqlConnection(cnn2)
objConnection2.Open()
Dim objCommand2 as new SqlCommand("procThatPullsIDsFromTable", ObjConnection2)
objCommand2.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
objCommand2.Connection = ObjConnection2
Dim objreader As SqlDataReader = objCommand2.ExecuteReader()
                
ReDim MyArray(countIDs)   'countIDs is set in a different section of code
      
Do While objreader.Read()
For I = 1 to countIDs
ReDim MyArray(I)
MyArray(I) = objreader.GetInt32(0)
Next
Loop
      
lblCount.Text = MyArray(2) 'Display one of the values of the array
objConnection2.close()      
End Sub

The problem lies in this line:

ReDim MyArray(I)

ReDim CLEARS the contents of the array.  What you want is this:

ReDim Preserve MyArray(I)


That will preserve your array's previous contents while making it bigger.

Try that.

actually he redims the array to its maximum size before ...

Sub createArray(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
     
Dim cnn2 As String = (ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("SomeWebSite"))
Dim objConnection2 as new sqlConnection(cnn2)
objConnection2.Open()
Dim objCommand2 as new SqlCommand("procThatPullsIDsFromTable", ObjConnection2)
objCommand2.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
objCommand2.Connection = ObjConnection2
Dim objreader As SqlDataReader = objCommand2.ExecuteReader()
             
ReDim MyArray(countIDs)   'countIDs is set in a different section of code
dimi as integer i = 0    
Do While objreader.Read()
MyArray(I) = objreader.GetInt32(0)
 i+= 1
Loop
     
lblCount.Text = MyArray(2) 'Display one of the values of the array
objConnection2.close()    
End Sub

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

the more likely problem was the loop inside the while loop.

Whoops.  Lets try that again.  REMOVE the ReDim from inside the loop.  You have already sized the array outside the loop.

Do While objreader.Read()
        MyArray(I) = objreader.GetInt32(0)
Loop

Whoops again...make that:

Dim ii As Integer = 0
Do While objreader.Read()
        MyArray(ii) = objreader.GetInt32(0)
        ii += 1            'Increment ii counter
Loop
0
