How do I create an array of Hyperlinks???

I am trying to dynamically create multiple hyperlinks. The count is never the same due to the count of records that are to be displayed.


I get the following error

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

Source Error:


Line 61:         For i = 0 To (myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows.Count - 1)
Line 62:            
Line 63:             PrevApp(i).NavigateUrl = "http://abc.com/WebApp/ave/aveWorkACase.aspx?WACID=" '+ myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows(i).Item(0).ToString
Line 64:             PrevApp(i).Text = myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows(i).Item(0).ToString
Line 65:             PrevAppHolder.Controls.Add(PrevApp(i))
 




Dim PrevApp As HyperLink() = New HyperLink(myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows.Count) {}
 
        
        For i = 0 To (myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows.Count - 1)
            
            PrevApp(i).NavigateUrl = "http://abc.com/WebApp/ave/aveWorkACase.aspx?WACID=" '+ myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows(i).Item(0).ToString
            PrevApp(i).Text = myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows(i).Item(0).ToString
            PrevAppHolder.Controls.Add(PrevApp(i))
            
        Next i

how about do it in this way?
try not to define the array, instead, you declare a new Hyperlink object in each iteration

(i am not familiar with VB, but u can try to "New" a hyperlink in the for-loop)

 
        
        For i = 0 To (myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows.Count - 1)
            Dim PrevApp As HyperLink() = New HyperLink()
            PrevApp(i).NavigateUrl = "http://abc.com/WebApp/ave/aveWorkACase.aspx?WACID=" '+ myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows(i).Item(0).ToString
            PrevApp(i).Text = myDataSet.Tables(1).Rows(i).Item(0).ToString
            PrevAppHolder.Controls.Add(PrevApp(i))
            
        Next i
