I have this code:
        private void bbGetHtml_ItemClick(object sender, DevExpress.XtraBars.ItemClickEventArgs e)
            HtmlAgilityPack.HtmlDocument page = new HtmlWeb().Load("https://www.xxx.nl/search/process_result.phtml?mypref_search_id=0");
            var pageLinks = page.DocumentNode.SelectNodes("//class[@class='mtcMemberNotGreylisted']//a");
            foreach (var link in pageLinks)
                txtResult.Text = link.Attributes["title"].Value;

Open in new window

But i get the error at the Foreach-line: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"
What does this mean and who can help me?
