Hello Experts,

Below is the code,


'''''chrome compatibility
    Protected Sub Page_PreInit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.PreInit
        If (Request.ServerVariables("http_user_agent").IndexOf("Chrome", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase) <> -1) Then
            Page.ClientTarget = "uplevel"
        End If
        If (Request.ServerVariables("http_user_agent").IndexOf("Safari", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase) <> -1) Then
            Page.ClientTarget = "uplevel"
        End If
    End Sub

Open in new window


Sometimes we are getting below error,

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

at line,

 If (Request.ServerVariables("http_user_agent").IndexOf("Chrome", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase) <> -1) Then

Open in new window


Can anyone help with this?

Thanks.

You can add a check to ensure that string is not null.

Change this

 If (Request.ServerVariables("http_user_agent").IndexOf("Chrome", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase) <> -1) Then

to

If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Request.ServerVariables("http_user_agent")) Then
 If (Request.ServerVariables("http_user_agent").IndexOf("Chrome", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase) <> -1) Then
End If
