Object reference not set to an instance of an object

in asp.net, getting error:

Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

on this line:
myUser = membertemp.GetUser(Page.User.Identity.Name, True)

here is the code:
        Dim membertemp As CustomMembershipProvider = Nothing

        isLoggedIn = Page.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated
        If isLoggedIn Then
            myUser = membertemp.GetUser(Page.User.Identity.Name, True)

During trace it says something about possibly needing a "New", but I don't know where to put it.???

thanks.

You need to change it to this:

Dim membertemp As New CustomMembershipProvider()

        isLoggedIn = Page.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated
        If isLoggedIn Then
            myUser = membertemp.GetUser(Page.User.Identity.Name, True)

thanks! Your suggestion solved that area.

But what actually worked was not declaring the membertemp.GetUser at all... but instead calling the original:

myUser = Membership.GetUser(UserID, False)

The above takes me directly to my custom provider and actually retrieves the values. go figure.
