problem on closing form in vb.net (Object reference not set to an instance of an object.)

hi,
 
i have an error when closing a form, the error is

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

i have included the code below and the line of code the error comes from is

 voc = curRow.Row.Item(1)

how do i overcome this, im stuck. have tried setting the selected index value of the combox on the exit button but this does not work

any ideas?

thanks in advance
Private Sub ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ComboBox1.SelectedIndexChanged
 
        Dim curRow As DataRowView = ComboBox1.SelectedItem
        Dim voc
        Dim SQLString As String
        Dim dtevents As New DataTable()
        Dim dbDataAdapter As OleDbDataAdapter
        'Dim ConnectString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=A470s media.mdb;Persist Security Info=True"
        ' ComboBox1Event.ValueMember 
        'Dim ConnectString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\Copy of vb 30th march\A470s Media Manager\A470sMedManager\A470s media.mdb;Persist Security Info=True"
        voc = curRow.Row.Item(1)
        'events = Me.ComboBox1Event.SelectedIndex + 1
        'events = Me.ComboBox1Event.SelectedItem
        SQLString = "SELECT * FROM [MediaAsset] WHERE [Vocalist Code] = " & voc & ""
        dbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter(SQLString, ConnectString)
        dbDataAdapter.Fill(dtevents)
        Dgvsearch.DataSource = dtevents
        ListBox3.DataSource = dtevents
        ListBox3.DisplayMember = "AssetFileName"
        ListBox3.ValueMember = "AssetSource"

Try include this
Private Sub ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ComboBox1.SelectedIndexChanged
 
If Me.ComboBox1.SelectedIndex <> -1 Then
   'you code
End If
 
End Sub

hi, thanks for the reply but his doesnt seem to change any thing. my comboboxes are filled wit data from my access database using the code supplied. so i have a search from and on this form is a combobox, if the combobox text is Vocalist then it will fill another combo with the data.

does this have anything to do with it?
 ElseIf Me.ComboBox3.Text = "Vocalist" Then
                     Dim dbConn As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(strConn)
            dbConn.Open()
            Dim DSet As New DataSet, SQLStr As String
            Dim cmd As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
            Dim dbAdaptr As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
            Dim tTbl As DataTable
            With dbAdaptr
                .TableMappings.Add("Table", "Vocalist ")
                SQLStr = "Select [Vocalist Name],[Vocalist Code] from Vocalist"
                cmd = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(SQLStr, dbConn)
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
                .SelectCommand = cmd
                .Fill(DSet)
                .Dispose()
            End With
            ' DSet.AcceptChanges() ' --> This line is useless
            tTbl = DSet.Tables.Item(0)
            DSet.Dispose()
            dbConn.Close()
 
            'fill out array by Event Names for combobox
            ComboBox1.DataSource = tTbl
            ComboBox1.DisplayMember = "Vocalist Name"
            ComboBox1.ValueMember = "Vocalist Code"
            'ComboBox1Event.SelectedItem = Nothing
            Me.ComboBox1.Show()
            Me.Label1.Show()
            DataGridView1.Hide()
            ComboBox1.Text = "---Select---"
            txtSearchEvent.Hide()
            txtSearchAr.Hide()
            txtSearchVoc.Show()
            Label2.Show()
            Me.Label1.Text = "Search By Vocalist"
            ListBox3.DataSource.clear()

Have you tried ?
Private Sub ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ComboBox1.SelectedIndexChanged
 
Dim curRow As DataRowView = ComboBox1.SelectedItem
If curRow Isnot Nothing Then
   ' You code
End if
 
End Sub

hi sorry jpaulino i read your code wrong, i was putting it down as

 Dim curRow As DataRowView = ComboBox1.SelectedItem
If curRow Isnot Nothing Then
   'You code
else
voc = curRow.Row.Item(1)
End if

instead of the other way round which works, i think i was readin the isnot nothing as it is nothing
