Hi There,

I'm getting an error when I try to update multiple rows from shopping cart. When I have one row it works fine but when I have multiple rows it gives me the error "Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute. " after the first iteration of the loop.

Could someone help me out with the syntax please?

I think i...after excuting the UpdateCart() function ... it goes to page load............
or/and updated data must be bind again with repeater control anywhere else in your code........
make sure what happens exactly.

ThanX :)

Hi tovvenki,

I have changed this using your suggestion but now when I try to pick up the contents of the textboxes & labels and I get an error saying "Object reference not set to an instance of an object. " How can I access the values of the objects?
It falls over on this line "If Not txtcode.Text = "" Then"


Sub ChangeQuantity(ByVal send As Object, ByVal E As EventArgs)
        Dim i As Int32 = 0
        Dim strCode As String = ""
        Dim intusercode As Int32 = 0
        For i = 0 To cart.Items.Count - 1
            '  For Each dataItem As RepeaterItem In cart.Items
            Dim ItemQuantity As TextBox = (CType(cart.FindControl("ItemQuantity"), TextBox))
            Dim txtcode As TextBox = (CType(cart.FindControl("txtcode"), TextBox))
            Dim txtitemnumber As Label = (CType(cart.FindControl("lblPitemnumber"), Label))
            Dim lblprice As Label = (CType(cart.FindControl("lblprice"), Label))

            If Not txtcode.Text = "" Then
                strCode = GetValidCode(txtcode)
                If strCode Is Nothing Then 'if the user does not have a valid code then call the function
                    Call UpdateCart(ItemQuantity, txtcode, txtitemnumber, lblprice, intusercode)
                Else 'if the user has a valid code then look it up
                    Session("THECODE") = strCode
                    intusercode = 1
                    Call GetDistributorPrice(ItemQuantity, txtcode, txtitemnumber, lblprice, intusercode)
                End If
            Else
                'if the code is nothing then call the function
                Call UpdateCart(ItemQuantity, txtcode, txtitemnumber, lblprice, intusercode)
            End If
            'Exit For
        Next
    End Sub
