Intermittent error message

    About one time in 4 or 5 compiling/loading my app onto a device in Debug mode, I get the B4A error message in the IDE: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." If I quit and try again, it will load and run without the message.

    I don't know what kind of object it is referring to, but I haven't added any new variables or Views since installing the latest version of B4A. I've just been tracking down bugs in my code.

    Does this message appear in the compilation window?

    Happens to me as well but not always. In this moment, I can't recall under which circumstances but I will make a note of it next time it happens and report.

    It is in a separate, floating message box with "Basic4Android" on the title bar. It comes up when I press F5 and about the same time as the "successful installation" message. IOW, the app installs and will run, but Debug never connects. The little connect icon on Debug keeps saying "connecting".

    I've had it happen another time or two since my original post, but since it doesn't come up again when I simply close the app and press F5 again, there's no way to get a handle on what's causing it. I don't *how* you can track this down.

    Please post if you happen to find anymore information about this error.

    I've compiled (F5) at least a half-dozen times (maybe 8-10) without an error, then it just came up again. I closed the error window, clicked the stop button on Debug, pressed F5 again, and it loaded and ran fine.

    Please try the following steps:
    1. Make sure that you have a folder named c:\temp.
    2. Run Basic4android with a shortcut or from the command line and add the argument: -log

    It should create a file named c:\temp\log.txt.
    When this error appears, close the IDE. The log should contain more information about this error.

    Well, I set it up like you instructed and in the last couple of dozen compiles, have yet to get the error again. Strange.

    I still get this error occasionally.

    I will now set up a folder called c:\temp and run B4A with the log-command and see if I can get some more information about this error.

    Yeah, I had a lot of fun tracking down a Heisenbug yesterday. The computer would make a wrong choice, so I would put in a Debug break and step through and it would make the right choice. (Rinse, repeat a bunch of times.)

    Turned out that a random number factor I had in a particular sub was getting applied to a variable in error. Just prior to finding that, I was getting ready to rip you a new one for putting out such a buggy development system. :rolleyes:

    Well, I was about to give up on ever getting the error message again, and up it came. When the error came up, I closed the app and quit B4A so that I could copy the log.txt file. I then ran it again and it loaded okay with no changes. (I wish I had thought to run it again before copying log.txt, but I don't think it would have told you anything not already in the file.

    The log.txt file is pretty long, so I couldn't attach it. Here's a link to it: http://www.hsv-life.com/log.txt.

    Here's the last few lines:

    I believe that I found the error. It is fixed for the next update.

    I know you said that you believe you already found the error, but I just had it happen again and this time it has a lot more info with it, so I'm passing it along just in case. This time I remembered to run it again before quitting and as usual, it loaded fine the 2nd time. I then quit and copied the following from the end of Log.txt:

    You need to update to Java 7 or 8 (Tools - Configure Paths).
