Linq contains. ???

Guys, I'm receiving a exception  NULL object with this command.

But my list has 260 object. I just want filter by customer passing some value from a Text component.

Does any one could tell me what's wrong ?

FilteredList = _ManagmentoDTO._Processing._Order._OrderMList.Where(s => s.Customer.StartsWith(txt_filter_Value.Text)).ToList();

Many Thansk

If the Customer property (among other potential candidates in that line) hasn't been properly initialized, then you will receive this error.

Assuming that s.customer returns string, here is a modified version which checks if the customer is not null or empty:-

FilteredList =
_ManagmentoDTO._Processing._Order._OrderMList
.Where(s => (!string.isNullOrEmpty(s.Customer) && s.Customer.StartsWith(txt_filter_Value.Text))).ToList();

This will filter out customer with null or empty data....

Try clicking in this part of that line:  ...txt_filter_Value.Text...

...then, hit F9 to set a breakpoint. Then run your application. When the lambda is executed, your code will break on that new breakpoint. Then you can step through one-by-one to see which entry raises the exception. Then it becomes a matter of figuring out why whichever member is null.
