Invalid Cast Exception When Assigning A Parent To A Child Type?

Nov 2, 2009

I've created a class that inherits from Dictionary(Of TKey, TValue) called KeyCopyDictionary(Of TKey, TValue). I'm now trying to use a pre-existing function which returns a Dictionary(Of String, String) and assigning it to a variable of type KeyCopyDictionary(Of String, String). I'm getting an invalid cast exception. Is it not possible to assign a variable of a parent type to a variable of its child type? I've tried DirectCast and CType to no avail on this...

Invalid Cast Exception On Same Type?

Apr 15, 2012

i know this may seam odd but I'm getting an error navigating through a datagrid of an invalid cast. The trouble is it is of the same types!! I working on customising some Sage code and in the form there is a datagrid that is populated by a series of Sage.Accounting.Stock.TraceableSOPAllocationItems (a batched stock item allocated to an SOP).

I want to give the user some further information on each item so they can decide which batch and bin to use. I want to go through each item in the grid and then go find this extra information for it. the trouble is when I go to navigate through, My VB.Net code throws the error.InvalidCastException was unhandled by user code, Unable to cast object of type 'Sage.Accounting.Stock.TraceableSOPAllocationItem' to type 'Sage.Accounting.Stock.TraceableSOPAllocationItem'.

I have declared two variables as strings strDob and strCurrentDate, Both Variables are for storing dates. StrDob is for storing Date of Birth and second is for Present date. and am executing the following code

If DateValue(strDOB) > DateValue(Date.Today) Then
and getting the error like
Invalid CastException was unhandled
Conversion from string "19/09/1987" to type 'Date' is not valid.

Error in the following code also:
iAge = (CInt(Abs(DateDiff("d", strCurrentDate, strDOB)) / 365))
Invalid CastException was unhandled
Argument 'Date1' cannot be converted to type 'Date'.
Here I need both variables as string itself. because the Dateofbirth is getting from three comboboxes.

VS 2010 - Masked Textbox (Invalid Cast Exception)

Oct 10, 2011

I've got a masked text box that throws an invalid cast exception if I try to put anything in the TextChanged event:
Private Sub mtbZVal_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MaskInputRejectedEventArgs) Handles mtbZVal.TextChanged
End Sub

Even more oddly, it throws the exception in a completely different part of the program. The masked textbox is on a form that opens when you press a button, and that's the bit that gives the error:
Private Sub cmdAddLoc_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdAddLoc.Click
If frmLocation.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then

LINQ Return Single Type Of Object Invalid Cast

Jun 29, 2010

Ok, just needing a 2nd set of eyes looking at this to make sure the error isn't something else other than my LINQ code here.  Here's the function class itself:

Public Function GetJacketByPolicyID(ByVal jacketID As Int32) As tblPolicy
Dim db As New DEVDataContext()
Dim j As tblPolicy = db.tblPolicies.Single(Function(p) p.policyNumber = jacketID)
Return j
End Function

and here is the code which calls this class function in the web control form itself:

Dim p As tblPolicy
Dim j As New Jackets()
p = j.GetJacketByPolicyID(3000050)

For some reason it's flagging the 2nd line in the GetJacketByPolicyID function saying the specified cast is not valid.  So I'm guessing it's something I'm doing wrong.  I'm sure the tblPolicy/tblPolicies class works right since I can create a new instance of a tblPolicy and set a few variables by hand and return it, so that's not it.  I've also checked the datarow I'm fetching and there's no null values in the record, so that shouldn't be it either.

Invalid Column Name 'LastEditDate' - SqlClient Exception?

Nov 16, 2009

I am getting an exception and I don't know how to remedy it. The history is that, in my inexperience, I had asked for the creation of an ODBC data source using a remote SQL Server, and specified caching of certain tables.Then I noticed that this was getting complicated and I tried to not have those tables cached.Columns like 'LastEditDate' had gotten added to those tables.I abandoned using ODBC and went with SqlClient instead. I started getting the error described below re "Invalid column name 'LastEditDate'" even though I never refer to or use such a column. I searched my computer for files containing this string and deleted them. The error kept occurring. I removed all the columns called 'LastEditDate' from the SQL Server database. The error kept occurring. I started my Visual Basic.Net 2008 project over with a different name.The error still keeps occurring.Fragment from a class (form) containing a sub called SyRefresh:

                    Case "STOCKDATA"
                        sCell = sData.Split(",")[code].....
dc is a datacontext associated with a SQL Server instance on a server somewhere on the Internet.That remote SQL Server is version 2000. As you can see above, I use Linq.
