Hi

i am getting this exception when i came to this line in code below... tabManRecon.Controls.Add(ucReconManually);

can any one see what the problem is?
ReconManually ucReconManually;
        private void ShowReconManually()
        {
            if (ucReconManually == null)
            {
                ucReconManually = new ReconManually(myOper);
                tabManRecon.Controls.Add(ucReconManually);
                ucReconManually.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
                ReconManualTabMenu = ((IMenu)ucReconManually).TabMenu();
            }
            ucReconManually.Show();
        }

most likely the tabManRecon is not instantiated. Where is it declared? If you put a breakpoint there, is it null?

> is it null?
i mean: you can see that by hovering over it with your mouse or by typing it in in the Immediate window

that sounds more like the exception that comes after the previous. Can you place a breakpoint on that line or do you get another exception before that breakpoint? If you receive the exception, can you post the stacktrace here?

This error (cannot create window handle) can be raised as a result of too many (child) windows, or objects that are out of scope but not Disposed and are leaking memory or simply never release there handles. Here's one post on the subject: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/222649/winforms-issue-error-creating-window-handle

This one is on Dispose (a good read and if you never used Dispose before, i recommend reading it) http://blogs.msdn.com/jfoscoding/articles/450835.aspx

Read this post: http://thedatafarm.com/devlifeblog/archive/2006/02/22/40253.aspx

and definitely read my suggestions in the previous post, most notably the one on Dispose. You seem to have some serious resources problems. Which may be why it does not happen in one case, but it does happen in another case...
