Hi Guys

I have the following problem with visual basic, this is not the actual code, but should illustrate the problem

I creates a new collection and a iterator, like

Dim collection as Collection
Dim it as Inode

then I create a node and inserts it into the collection, eg

collection.Add( new Inode , "key" )

then I would like to iterate through the collection, something like

For Each it in collection
   ....
next it

But I get an exception with the following message: {"Object reference not set to an instance of an object."}

My own explanation is like follows. When you call "Add" on the collection, a node is automatically generated that are a text string and inserted at the first position in the collection, then my node is added. When I iterate through the collection the first time I get the auto inserted string which cannot be casted to the type of my iterator and when I try to do a next, I get the exception, so basically my question is: Can you avoid to get the autoinserted node or can you avoid this node in your iteration.

Thanks, Niels

Hi nielsboldt!

I tryed you code and the only thing that I see is that you need to change this line

Dim collection as Collection

to this

Dim [You Collection Name] as New Collection

and that should take care of that error.

Hi

I found the cause of the error, and it was a really stupid mistake in the implementation of the enumerable interface.

Thanks for your time.
