I am trying to write a workflow in C# in VS 2013 for Sharepoint 2010. I never did it before nor am I a programmer, so I need to kindly ask for a bigger explanation.
The workflow is running each time the new item is created in the list. I am trying to retrieve an item from some other list which exists in the same site. The web page I am following is following:
It is pretty clear from the referenced MSDN site, how you retrieve such items from lists. However because I am missing some really basic programming knowledge I stopped at the first most important line:
SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web;
While debugging NullReferenceException has been thrown. How am I able to use aforementioned statement successfully, so the object web won't be empty (of value null)? Why is the object web empty?
Please don't hesitate to ask if you need more information. I don't know what information is helpful for solving my issue.
