View Maintenance - Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

17 January 2005

Issue Description

This error is generated in the 'Preview' tab of the 'View Maintenance' window of the AnyView IDS Console when creating or modifying a view.  The error occurs in the 'Preview' tab when the user makes a modification to the 'Web application URL' field and then immediately clicks in the preview area of the window.


The 'Web application URL' can be modified from the 'Preview' tab of the 'View Maintenance' window. 


  1. If a modification is made, simply use the tab key to move out of the 'Web application URL' field.
  2. The preview of the view being created or modified will now be displayed with no error.
  3. Click the 'Finish' button to save the view. 
When the 'Finish' button is clicked, the modified web application URL is saved to the AnyViewAdmin.config file in the AnyView IDS application directory.  This URL will not be applied to all 'Preview' tabs for new or modified views.
