Hi Guys,
I hope you can help me because I've tried everything and don't know what else to do. I keep getting the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" and I can't seem to figure out what the problem is. I've even tried instantiating the object and nothing seems to be working. Can anyone help me? The code is below. Thanks.

Without context or definitions of some of these functions/classes, it's hard to tell what isn't being initialized. Have you tried stepping through the code to find out exactly which line the error is occuring on?

There's a few functions that I am not sure what they are doing. For example, when you are assigning cropped=GetImageSection() are you sure GetImageSection is returning a new bitmap, rather than just modifying the bitmap? Stepping through the code will help narrow down the problematic line of code, then from there it may be necessary to post the referenced method/class/function calls that are on that line.

Looks like the _targetRoi variable is not initialized. It must be initialized in the constructor of your class or in the declaration of _targetRoi.

That is sort of jumping to conclusions. It is marked as an output variable, meaning that it is expecting an already-constructed Window class as an argument. In order to know this for sure, we need to see the calling code.

If you don't have the calling code (you are writing a library for someone else to use) then it may be a good idea to do some checks on the arguments to throw more meaningful exceptions:

if (_targetoi==null)
   throw new exception ("_targetoi is non initialized");

@skatamatic
No, actually you are mixing things up. _targetRoi with "_" is not the out parameter, but targetRoi without the "_". So _targetRoi must have been initialized, too. This is what I was referring to.

Ah yes that's right. You need to initialize _targetRoi. Maybe use variables that differ more in name than a '_'.

Could you tell us on which line you got the error?
Obviously some object is not instantiated, but from your code it is hard to tell.

I didn't notice either at first glance. It's on line 13, commented with //ERROR.

Ah yes that's right. You need to initialize _targetRoi. Maybe use variables that differ more in name than a '_'.

I tried initializing _targetRoi. But when the program still didn't compile, I took it out.

I stepped through the code and I have posted the code with the highlighted error lines in red. Thanks

Ah yes that's right. You need to initialize _targetRoi. Maybe use variables that differ more in name than a '_'.

You were right. I had to initialize _targetRoi. Once I put in the exception argument, it stated that VALUE CANNOT BE NULL. PARAMETER NAME: _targetRoi is non initialized. So I went ahead and did this:

Meanshift _targetRoi = new Meanshift();

Now it says Tracker.Meanshift does not contain a definition for CentreX and no extension method 'CentreX' accepting a first argument of type 'Tracker.Meanshift' could be found. (Are you missing a using directive or assembly)

This is the code the error is referring to: int centreX = _targetRoi.CentreX;

Are you sure _targetRoi is of type Meanshift? Please post the whole code, including the initialization of _targetRoi. And please format as code.

I changed it to:

Window _targetRoi = new Window(); (highlighted in RED)
Then it gave me the same error in the code highlighted in GREEN.

change

private Window _targetRoi;

to

private Window _targetRoi = new Window();

and delete the red line.
Try to find out with IntelliSense if the method is in the Window class. Maybe there is a mix up with the Window class (is it your own? Or a .NET one?). You might use a "wrong" class. Hold the mouse on "Window" and check the namespace.

Where did you see

private Window _targetRoi;

I could not find it so I added 'private to

Window _targetRoi = new Window();

in the Track method.

IntelliSense would not allow me to use

private Window _targetRoi = new Window();

It said Invalid expression 'private'

The method is not in the Window class. It's in the CVMeanshift class which is in frmMain.cs I posted that earlier.

I'll keep on playing with it.

Well, I have found the line

private Window _targetRoi;

so you should be able to find it, too.

Try the following:
Find the line (take your time :-) and add the initialization as posted in my previous post.
Do the same for

private Window _searchRoi;

Then replace all occurrences of "Window" with "UIGraphic.Window".
