    Hi Scotts.

    I got this error in my project :

    System.NullReferenceException was unhandled
      Message="Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
           at FarPoint.Win.Spread.FpSpread.WndProc(Message& m)

           at System.Threading.ThreadHelper.ThreadStart()

    It happened when the second time I click to combobox in SpreadSheet. The project still run if I didn't run project in bebug mode but when I add break point to debug and it happened.

    This is code which I wrote in event  ComboDropDown:
        Private Sub fpUniverse_ComboDropDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As FarPoint.Win.Spread.EditorNotifyEventArgs) Handles fpUniverse.ComboDropDown
            Dim tbl As New DataTable
                If e.Column = C_UNIVERSE_DATE Then
                    CType(e.EditingControl, FarPoint.Win.FpCombo).AcceptsReturn = True
                    CType(e.EditingControl, FarPoint.Win.FpCombo).List.Clear()
                    tbl = mScreenCriteria.LoadModifyDateList(fpUniverse.ActiveSheet.GetText(e.Row, C_UNIVERSE_ID).ToString().Trim())
                    For Each Row As DataRow In tbl.Rows
                        CType(e.EditingControl, FarPoint.Win.FpCombo).List.Add(CType(Row(0), Date).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy"))
                End If
            Catch ex As Exception
            End Try
        End Sub

    May I make mistake ? How do I fix it Scotts ? Thanks for your Help.

    Could you attach a small project reproducing this for us to debug?  In my small test I am not able to reproduce it.  From the looks of your code the only thing I see that could be causing this is the ListAdd method.  If that row doesn't exist you might get that exception.  You could also try removing the ToString Method.

    In addition to what Bob asked from you, also make sure you are using the latest release of your Spread for Windows Forms version.
