Have you ever seen the "Object Reference Not Set" exception? Or tried to track down its cause in a production system? Discover some common functions that provide safe coding practices and simplify your search for the causes of null references.

Learn how you can leverage a generic function that will enable or disable all controls on a Web page for a given type, or utilize callbacks to provide other processing. Plus, implement QueryString tamper proofing for more secure Web sites.
