Probably you have different IDs in ASPX file and codebehind file...
Misspelled... I do that often.

Don't know but when adding stuff programmatically ( as I am doing at the moment also) I have found THAT error, the old Obj ref not set, popping up everywhere.

I tend to stick a lot of "new"'s everywhere.
I use c# so am not on the ball with VB sytax.
In C# I would use
System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlControl StyleSheetURL;
in the declaration and then instantiate as a 'new' in the initialise
StyleSheetURL = new System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlControl();

Then you have an object. Seems to clear a lot up.

Don't know what the VB syntax is though ??

If its only happening in one of the pages  then there's something wrong with that page specifically, surely. you've probs leant on the keyboard with that page open !

I think the thing is with your dynamic repeater creation. You have to make shure you recreate it in Page Load everytime the page postbacks. 'Till this event only controls that are in aspx are put into page control tree. Everytime that server sends data to client the whole page is disposed, so you have to recreate everything again.

You must create Item template by adding other controls to it. i.e.
but don't forget to give them ID's.

In ItemDataBound event you can still do the FindControl... If the server gives other actual ID's try displaying all ID's of the item to see if your item resides inside ItemTemplate...

FindControl iteself won't raise exception, but casting and using refference may if FindControl returns null. Probably this is your problem.

First you have your Web control in the ASPX file (I hope you added it inside.
otherwise this is the cause...) and then declared in the codebehind (aspx.cs or
aspx.vb) as protected System.Web.UI.blah.blah...

If ID in ASPX file is the same as object  declaration name in the codebehind you
shouldn't get the exception. Unless you called Clear() of the container
containing your control.

Does this sound understandable?
