Adapter.InsertCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue NullReferenceException

Ok, I have an issue that I cannot seem to grasp. As per the title of the post, I am receiving a NullReferenceException when I access a stored procedure from a DataGridView in a C# application. The line of code that keeps throwing the exception is:
this.spPullAssignedAssetsTableAdapter.Adapter.InsertCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@aUser", Variables.userName);

Open in new window


userName is coming from a class called variables. The call for that variable is:
public class Variables
    {
        public static string userName;
    }

Open in new window


The ultimate conclusion to this task is to pass the userName variable to the stored procedure connected in the data adapter.

I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Following the debugger, I can see that the variable is being passed through correctly, but i have no idea why the NullReferenceException is being thrown.

Thank you for your time and any help is greatly appreciated.

I would suggest check its nullability in your form load event like
if(this.spPullAssignedAssetsTableAdapter != null)
{
      if(this.spPullAssignedAssetsTableAdapter.Adapter != null)
      {
            if(this.spPullAssignedAssetsTableAdapter.Adapter.InsertCommand == null)
            {
                  this.spPullAssignedAssetsTableAdapter.Adapter.InsertCommand = <<Creation logic>>
            }
            Next steps..
      }
}

How is this.spPullAssignedAssetsTableAdapter.Adapter.InsertCommand? How are you setting it in your code?

Do you mean how is the above line of code being called?

If so, its being called in the frmAssetsAssigned.Designer.cs code.

Nothing I have (any variable associated with this line of code, including the variables in the stored procedure) have any null reference associated with them.

If I need to move it away from the Designer.cs , any direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I mean you are appending parameter for this.spPullAssignedAssetsTableAdapter.Adapter.InsertCommand object but before that have you checked nullability of this object? In other words, this object (InsertCommand) for desired Adapter object should be set to some not null reference before we set its parameters.

Oh, I see.

Forgive me for sounding like a complete novice (for which I pretty much am), but how do you set that variable to something else before you assign the variable to it? (Especially since it takes two parameters)

Also, would it make more sense to place this line of code in the form load method of that form, instead of the Designer.cs?

It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but it gave me the idea to look to LINQ instead.

Thank you.
