I would like to ask for help regarding an asp page with a list view.

I want to get the Id value for the selected row, so that I can query the entity framework, get the record and delete it.

Down below is the code for when I do the e.Command = "Delete"
        If e.CommandName = "Delete" Then

            Dim myContext As New OLTPEntities
            Dim myRecipeStepsHistory = myContext.RefineRecipeStep.Where("it.Recipe_Id=" & Me.lvRecipeSteps.FindControl("Recipe_Id").ToString())
            Dim strRefineRecipeStepRecord = New StringBuilder("")

            If Not IsNothing(myRecipeStepsHistory) Then
                ' Recipe_Id
                strRefineRecipeStepRecord.Append("Recipe_Id: " & Me.lvRecipeSteps.FindControl("Recipe_Id").ToString() & ", ")

Open in new window

I get an Object reference not set to an instance of an object, message.

Dim myRecipeStepsHistory = myContext.RefineRecipeStep.Where("it.Recipe_Id=" & Me.lvRecipeSteps.FindControl("Recipe_Id").ToString())  << this line, I thinkis because I am not looking for the right control?

I have attached a copy of my aspx code. Hopefully some one will be able to provide guidance on this problem.

Thank you much.

What event are you using to do the delete? The ListView Deleting event passes a Keys collection as part of it EventArgs. That collection will include the ID of the row being deleted.

I started using:
Private Sub lvRecipeSteps_ItemCommand(sender As Object, e As ListViewCommandEventArgs) Handles lvRecipeSteps.ItemCommand

Open in new window

And then check the Command Name:
If e.CommandName = "Delete"

Open in new window

I now changed the code to use ItemDeleting event, because I have a DataKeyNames="Id"
defined, but I have not been able to figure out how to access it and then query the Entities.
Private Sub lvRecipeSteps_ItemDeleting(sender As Object, e As ListViewDeleteEventArgs) Handles lvRecipeSteps.ItemDeleting
Dim myContext As New OLTPEntities
Dim myRefineRecipeSteps = myContext.RefineRecipeStep.Where("it.Id=" & Me.lvRecipeSteps.DataKeys().ToString())   << this does not work

Open in new window

You don't need to cast the data key to a textbox. Try:
Dim myRefineRecipeSteps = myContext.RefineRecipeStep.Where("it.Id=" & currentDataKey.Value).FirstOrDefault()

Open in new window

Try changing

Dim myRefineRecipeSteps = myContext.RefineRecipeStep.Where("it.Id=" & Me.lvRecipeSteps.DataKeys().ToString())


to

Dim myRefineRecipeSteps = myContext.RefineRecipeStep.Where("it.Id=" & e.Keys("ID"))
