I have the following loop:

 
If fvShip.CurrentMode = FormViewMode.ReadOnly Then
            Dim bLinks() As LinkButton = {bLink, bLink1, bLink2, bLink3, bLink4}
            Dim lblFileLengths() As Label = {lblFileLength, lblFileLength1, lblFileLength2, lblFileLength3, lblFileLength4}
            For i As Integer = 0 To lblFileLengths.Length - 1
                If lblFileLengths(i).Text = "0" Then
                    bLinks(i).Visible = False
                End If
            Next
        End If

Open in new window


and get the  Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object at
  --If lblFileLengths(i).Text = "0" Then

can someone assist?

Your code appears correct.  I wrote an example and was able to step through and confirm it working correctly.  Something is coming back as null in your labels it looks like.  Are you sure the labels have the correct properties set?  

Dim lbl1 As New Label()
        lbl1.Text = "0"
        Dim lbl2 As New Label()
        lbl2.Text = "1"
        Dim lbl3 As New Label()
        lbl3.Text = "2"

        Dim testFileLengths() As Label = {lbl1, lbl2, lbl3}
        For i As Integer = 0 To testFileLengths.Length - 1
            If testFileLengths(i).Text = "0" Then

                Dim s As String = "Im here"

            End If
        Next

Can you look at the values in the debugger when the error occurs?
