Object reference not set to an instance of an object when searching

Asked On November 6, 2019 12:38 PM UTC


I have a DataGrid that correctly displays the data, however, when performing a search, an exception is thrown: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

From the stack trace, it appears that the problem is something to do with the column type?
