Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Dynamic Labels

  1. #1

    Dynamic Labels

    I wanted to create some dynamic labels in a loop and put them in an array.
    I tried the following but it throws a NullReferenceException.
    Code:
    [....]
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        {
            private Label[] mlbs;
            public Form1()
            {
                InitializeComponent();
            }
    
            private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                for(int i = 0; i < 20; i++) {
                   mlbs[i] = new Label();
                }
            }
        }
    [...]

    You've declared the array as undimensioned but you didnt redimension it before you tried to assign a value to one of it's elements. The computer hasn't reserved any memory for this array, therefore you will get a null reference exception

    Try

    mlbs = new Label[20]

    on form_Load
    MS Paint FTW!
