Found a problem in the VB.NET SDK sample

Recommended Posts

This code (in the FSUIPC_Open function) returns a System.NullReferenceException (as szTemp is never loaded):

' create the name of our file-mapping object

nTry = nTry + 1 ' Ensures a unique string is used in case user closes and reopens

szName = FS6IPC_MSGNAME1 & ":" & Hex(GetCurrentProcessId()) & ":" & Hex(nTry) & Chr(0)

If (szName.Length > 23) Then '24 chars max

szName = szTemp.Substring(0, 23) & Chr(0)

End If

I've modified to:

' create the name of our file-mapping object

nTry = nTry + 1 ' Ensures a unique string is used in case user closes and reopens

szName = FS6IPC_MSGNAME1 & ":" & Hex(GetCurrentProcessId()) & ":" & Hex(nTry) & Chr(0)

If (szName.Length > 23) Then '24 chars max

szName = szName.Substring(0, 23) & Chr(0)

End If

and removed the Dim for szTemp. That solved the problem.

Thanks. I'll forward your message to the author. I had assumed he'd tested it, so this is a bit odd. I know nothing about VB or .Net so I don't just want to change it myself.
