try
    objectID==System.DBNull.Value.ToString()

Note the double =.

In c# = is an assignment, == is a check for equality

I'm not too sure how this would work anyway. You probably should be using the IsDBNull function. It looks a little weird getting the value of a null and converting it to a string?

if not isdbnull(objectid) then
dim b as boolean=ctype(objectid,boolean)
endif
