I'm trying to populate controls on a .aspx page with result s from a stored procedure. It's not that it doesn't work it's not populating the way that it should be.

CODE:
protected void OrderNmSearchButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            RMADataClassDataContext rmaOrderNum = new RMADataClassDataContext();

            var q = rmaOrderNum.sp_Incident_selectDetailsbyOrderNum(OrderNumtxtBox.Text);

            foreach (var i in q)
            {
                incidenttextbox.Text = i.IncidentID.ToString();
                ordertxtbox.Text = i.OrderID.ToString();
                emailtxtbox.Text = i.Email.ToString();
                nametxtbox.Text = i.Name.ToString();
                //Might Not Work
                ReasonDropDownList1.SelectedValue = i.IncidentReasonID.ToString();
                ResolutionDropDownList2.SelectedValue = i.IncidentResolutionID.ToString();
                ShipperDropDownList3.SelectedValue = i.ShipperID.ToString();
                CreatorDropDownList4.SelectedValue = i.IncidentCreatedBy.ToString();
                //
               
                // This Date Works
                origdatetxtbox.Text = i.OriginalShipDate.ToString();


               //These Dates Do Not Work
                datecreatedtxtbox.Text = i.IncidentCreatedDate.ToString();
                returntagdatetxtbox.Text = i.DateRetTagGenerated.ToString();
                ebaycreditdatetxtbox.Text = i.eBayCreditFileDate.ToString();
                increturndatetxtbox.Text = i.IncidentReturnDate.ToString();
               
               
                //dropdownboxes values selected
               
                //These dropdownlists work
                ReturnTagDropDownList5.SelectedValue = ReturnTagDropDownList5.Items.FindByText(i.ReturnTagRequired.ToString()).Value;
                ebaycreditDropDownList7.SelectedValue = ebaycreditDropDownList7.Items.FindByText(i.eBayCredit.ToString()).Value;
                RMADropDownList8.SelectedValue = RMADropDownList8.Items.FindByText(i.RMARequested.ToString()).Value;
                IncClosedDropDownList9.SelectedValue = IncClosedDropDownList9.Items.FindByText(i.IncidentResolved.ToString()).Value;

               


               //These Do not work
                //IncReceivedDropDownList10.SelectedValue = IncReceivedDropDownList10.Items.FindByText(i.IncidentReceived.ToString().Trim()).Value;
                //RefundDropDownList6.SelectedValue = RefundDropDownList6.Items.FindByText(i.RefundRequired.ToString()).Value;



                //Notes

                if (i.Notes.ToString() == null)
                {
                    notestxtbox.Text = "";
                }
                else
                {
                    notestxtbox.Text = i.Notes.ToString();
                }

                //Refund Date

                if (i.DateRefundIssued.ToString() == null)
                {
                    refunddatetxtbox.Text = "";
                }
                else
                {
                    refunddatetxtbox.Text = i.DateRefundIssued.ToString();
                }
                               
                //Refund Amount

                if (i.RefundAmount.ToString() == null)
                {
                    refamounttxtbox.Text = "";
                }
                else
                {
                    refamounttxtbox.Text = i.RefundAmount.ToString();
                }
               
                //Inventory Item Name

                if (i.InventoryItem.ToString() == null)
                {
                    itemnametxtbox.Text = "";
                }
                else
                {
                    itemnametxtbox.Text = i.InventoryItem.ToString();
                }
               
                //Item quantity

                if (i.InventoryItem.ToString() == null)
                {
                    itemqtytxtbox.Text = "";
                }
                else
                {
                    itemqtytxtbox.Text = i.InventoryQuantity.ToString();
                }
               
                //Lost Value

                if (i.LostValue.ToString() == null)
                {
                    lostvaletxtbox.Text ="";
                }
                else
                {
                    lostvaletxtbox.Text = i.LostValue.ToString();
                }
               
                //RMA Number

                if (i.RMANumber.ToString() == null)
                {
                    rmanumtxtbox.Text = "";
                }
                else
                {
                    rmanumtxtbox.Text = i.RMANumber.ToString();
                }
               

            }

The Lines in bold are the controls I'm having problems with. The OrigDate Text Box will populate but the other dates which have the same return typ as the OrigDate will not populate and there is data being returned when I look at the debug info the controls have the data there but it's not being displayed. My dropdownlist select a 'Y' or 'N' value will work on the lines not commented out ERROR: NullReferenceException was unhandled by user code. I cannot figure this out because the other bold dropdownlist will have null values and they are handled.

The last if else statement will give me a null reference error if there is not any data in the returned data, but the other if else statements will work if there is a null returned.

does your stored procedure returns Null Dates ???

if so, then you may need to handle like this:

datecreatedtxtbox.Text = i.IncidentCreatedDate.HasValue ? i.IncidentCreatedDate.Value.ToString() : "";

I figured the dates and dropdown boxes out. It's the very last if(statement) error NullReferenceException was unhandled by user code, Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

try changing your code to:

if (i.RMANumber.HasValue)
{
   rmanumtxtbox.Text = i.RMANumber.Value;
}
else
{
   rmanumtxtbox.Text = "";
}

That variable does not have that property.  The return type of the variable is a string. When a record is created if the RMAoption is == y it triggers a function to create a RMANumber varchar(15). Does that have something to do with the problem, it does not make sense since I'm just executing a select query on the database.

for string you shld always use: string.IsNullOrEmpty()

if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(i.RMANumber))
{
   rmanumtxtbox.Text = i.RMANumber.ToString();
}
else
{
   rmanumtxtbox.Text = "";
}

or another shortcut:

rmanumtxtbox.Text = string.Format("{0}", i.RMANumber); // will hanlde null as well
