I developing a windows project in visual studio 2005.  I noticed some code is not getting the right results.  In the following code sample,  If Not IsNothing(ID) Then, is always true.  I checked the Value of ID and it was &H0.

How can I fix this?  Thanks in advance
Public Sub Login(ByVal UserName As String, ByVal Password As String, ByVal RememberMe As Boolean)

        Dim ID As Integer

        ID = clsDatabase.GetReaderSingleValue("SELECT ID FROM tblUsers WHERE Username = '" & UserName & "' AND Password = '" & Password & "'", CommandType.Text)

        If Not IsNothing(ID) Then

            GetUserByID(ID)

            Authenticated = True

        End If

    End Sub

Try this approach:




Public Sub Login(ByVal UserName As String, ByVal Password As String, ByVal RememberMe As Boolean)

        Dim ID As Integer

        ID = clsDatabase.GetReaderSingleValue("SELECT ID FROM tblUsers WHERE Username = '" & UserName & "' AND Password = '" & Password & "'", CommandType.Text)

        If Not ID is noting Then

            GetUserByID(ID)

            Authenticated = True

        End If

    End Sub

opps, typing error, It should be ...

If Not ID is nothing Then

so the code should be like this



Public Sub Login(ByVal UserName As String, ByVal Password As String, ByVal RememberMe As Boolean)

        Dim ID As Integer

        ID = clsDatabase.GetReaderSingleValue("SELECT ID FROM tblUsers WHERE Username = '" & UserName & "' AND Password = '" & Password & "'", CommandType.Text)

        If Not ID is nothing Then

            GetUserByID(ID)

            Authenticated = True

        End If

    End Sub

thanks for the reply jack.
The clsDatabase procedure was returning nothing with converted to 0 in ID.  I changed the datatype of ID to nullable (of integer)  and the if worked.  The hex values was because the hexadecimal display button was depressed.  until a few minuets ago, I did not know about this.
