OK everyone- I am going in too many different directions at once and I know I am missing something simple- here is my issue- I am getting an "object reference not set to an instance of an object" error and I know I a missing something obvious  below are my object classes and how I am trying to call them:

public class ItemDiscountRequest
    {
        public string ItemName;

        public int Quantity;

        public ItemDiscountRequest()
        {

        }

    }

 public class DiscountRequest
    {
        public string CustID;
       
        public ItemDiscountRequest[] Items;
           }
Then I am using them with a web method to get customer discounts---

ItemDiscountRequest discountReq = new ItemDiscountRequest();
DiscountRequest trevReq = new DiscountRequest();
           
            discountReq.ItemName = "ITEMSKU";
            discountReq.Quantity = 2;

            trevReq.Items[0] = discountReq;


            GetDiscount(trevReq);


HELP- I know I am missing something simple can someone point it out so I can feel dumb and then move on to getting things working? ;-) lol  Thanks in advance

You need to provide an array item:
trevReq.Items = new ItemDiscountRequest[1];
trevReq.Items[0] = discountReq;

Open in new window


You can't assign an item to a non-initialized array. Basically:

object[] myObjectArray;

has myObjectArray = null. You need:

object[] myObjectArray = new object[someNumber];

Otherwise, you have no place to put the objects.
