Unable to get property 'apply' of undefined or null reference in angul...

Rectangle 27 2

If you judge by the C++ standard, you cannot get a null reference because you get undefined behavior first. After that first incidence of undefined behavior, the standard allows anything to happen. So, if you write *(int*)0, you already have undefined behavior as you are, from a language standard point of view, dereferencing a null pointer. The rest of the program is irrelevant, once this expression is executed, you are out of the game.

However, in practice, null references can easily be created from null pointers, and you won't notice until you actually try to access the value behind the null reference. Your example may be a bit too simple, as any good optimizing compiler will see the undefined behavior, and simply optimize away anything that depends on it (the null reference won't even be created, it will be optimized away).

Yet, that optimizing away depends on the compiler to prove the undefined behavior, which may not be possible to do. Consider this simple function inside a file converter.cpp:

int& toReference(int* pointer) {
    return *pointer;

When the compiler sees this function, it does not know whether the pointer is a null pointer or not. So it just generates code that turns any pointer into the corresponding reference. (Btw: This is a noop since pointers and references are the exact same beast in assembler.) Now, if you have another file user.cpp with the code

#include "converter.h"

void foo() {
    int& nullRef = toReference(nullptr);
    cout << nullRef;    //crash happens here

the compiler does not know that toReference() will dereference the passed pointer, and assume that it returns a valid reference, which will happen to be a null reference in practice. The call succeeds, but when you try to use the reference, the program crashes. Hopefully. The standard allows for anything to happen, including the appearance of ping elephants.

You may ask why this is relevant, after all, the undefined behavior was already triggered inside toReference(). The answer is debugging: Null references may propagate and proliferate just as null pointers do. If you are not aware that null references can exist, and learn to avoid creating them, you may spend quite some time trying to figure out why your member function seems to crash when it's just trying to read a plain old int member (answer: the instance in the call of the member was a null reference, so this is a null pointer, and your member is computed to be located as address 8).

So how about checking for null references? You gave the line

if( & nullReference == 0 ) // null reference

in your question. Well, that won't work: According to the standard, you have undefined behavior if you dereference a null pointer, and you cannot create a null reference without dereferencing a null pointer, so null references exist only inside the realm of undefined behavior. Since your compiler may assume that you are not triggering undefined behavior, it can assume that there is no such thing as a null reference (even though it will readily emit code that generates null references!). As such, it sees the if() condition, concludes that it cannot be true, and just throw away the entire if() statement. With the introduction of link time optimizations, it has become plain impossible to check for null references in a robust way.

Null references are somewhat of a ghastly existence:

Their existence seems impossible (= by the standard), but they exist (= by the generated machine code), but you cannot see them if they exist (= your attempts will be optimized away), but they may kill you unaware anyway (= your program crashes at weird points, or worse). Your only hope is that they don't exist (= write your program to not create them).

I do hope that will not come to haunt you!

Well You Understand it all Wrong

Function.prototype.showMsg = function () {
    alert("This is a sample message.");

function Person() { = "Mahesh";

var personObj = new Person();

First you prototyped the function class, then create a custom class called Person, then you create an instance of Person. And then you are calling the very blue print which is showMsg which is 2 Mistakes 1 showMsg is not Bounded into the Person and then to call it if its bounded you call it directly like this


Will To Make This Script Work from my point of View if i got you write write it like this ->

function Person() { = "Mahesh";

Person.prototype.showMsg = function () {
  alert("This is a sample message.");

var personObj = new Person();

my script bound the showMsg Directly to the Person Class if you need it through the Person Object and Through The Function Class To Then you have to inherit from Function Class Like This

Function.prototype.showMsg=function () {
   alert("This is a sample message.");

function Person() { = "Mahesh";

Person.prototype = Function;
Person.prototype.constructor = Person;

var personObj = new Person();

But then how can I make a property or method to appear as a part of all functions and their instances???

You can only call done() once in a promise chain, and that must be at the end of the chain. In the problematic code, the done() function is called twice in the promise chain:

You can use .join to merge to promise chains to complete when both are complete. I think that's what your tring to get to. Just use the result of the .then, and you'll be good

Your source seems to contain parts, which are not selectable in the line:

to get rid of the problem you could insert the follwing:

src_array[g] = document.getElementById(src_array[g]);

if(src_array[g] != undefined) {
    if(src_array[g].selectedIndex < 0){ alert("Please select a " + src_array[g].name); return;}

ofcourse, you would then also need to change your further code - for example you shouldnt go for src_array[0] directly - without checking whether it is undefined or not

update: since i don't know the purpose of your code, i ll try to complete it as far as i can - IMPORTANT: this won't fix the fact that your first element is undefined. Something in your src is wrong OR the element does not exists even though it should.

function passMultiList(src, selected)
    dst = parent.frames['downright'].document.getElementById('chosen');
    var src_array = src.split("_");

    for(g=0; g<src_array.length; g++){
        src_array[g] = document.getElementById(src_array[g]);
        if(src_array[g] != undefined) {
            if(src_array[g].selectedIndex < 0){ alert("Please select a " + src_array[g].name); return;}
    if(src_array[0] != undefined) {
      for(i=0; i<src_array[0].options.length; i++){
            var text = src_array[0].options[i].text;
            var value = src_array[0].options[i].value;
                flag = 0;
                for(k=0; k<dst.options.length; k++)
                    if(dst.options[k].value == value)
                    dst.options[dst.options.length]=new Option(text, value);
                    if(selected == 1)
            } else {
                passList(src_array, 0, text, value, selected);

You could however try to fix this by pushing the correct entries into a new array:

var src_pushed = [];
if(src_array[g] != undefined) {
            if(src_array[g].selectedIndex < 0){ alert("Please select a " + src_array[g].name); return;}
for(i=0; i<src_pushed[0].options.length; i++){

This is undefined behaviour, I believe. The standard does not stipulate when the LHS of the assignment is evaluated compared to the RHS. If *ptr is evaluated after the function is called, you will be dereferencing a null pointer; if it is evaluated before the function is called, then you get sane behaviour.

The code is thoroughly disreputable. Do not try using it, or anything similar, in real code.

Note that there is a sequence point immediately before a function is called, after its arguments have been evaluated; there is also a sequence point immediately before a function returns. Thus, there are sequence points related to the evaluation of the function arguments and its return value, but...and this is crucial in this still does not tell you whether *ptr is evaluated before or after the function is called. Either is possible; both are correct; the code depends on which happens, which makes it rely on undefined behaviour.

The common issue with ASP.NET pages, specially if you use MasterPages.


One solution for your problem is to give these elements a unique class and use it in the selector instead of their IDs:

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCity" runat="server" CssClass="stdFldWidth ddlCity" onchange="setFDFlag()">

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlState" runat="server" CssClass="stdFldWidth ddlState" DataSourceID="dsUSState"
    DataTextField="US_State" DataValueField="State_ID" AutoPostBack="true" > 
$(function () {
    var states = {
        AL: ['Birmingham', 'Montgomery', 'Tuscaloosa'],
        FL: ['Miami', 'FtLauderdale', 'Jacksonville'],
        GA: ['Atlanta', 'Macon', 'Athens']

    function populateSelect() {

        var stateSelected = $('.ddlState').val();

        if (stateSelected) {
            states[stateSelected].forEach(function (sel) {


    $('.ddlState').on('change', function() { 

        return true;

Edited using @sebnukem recommendation to keep the data in an object, so you can get rid of the eval().

Updated by placing the whole code within the jQuery document ready event handler.

Updated by returning true in the jQuery onchange event handler for the DropDownList, to carry on with the PostBack.

I updated my original post with the codebehind. I tried adding the values to ddlCity in the codebehind, but it didnt work. I was thinking jquery would be an easier option.

Your codebehind doesn't seem to be taking part in the problem stated in the question.

Which part? I've updated the answer, now having all the Javascript/jQuery code within the document ready event handler - $(function () { });. And I don't believe you have an issue in your codebehind that could be messing up with this code - causing the Javascript error stated in your question.

Ah, sure. I've forgotten to add the call to the populateSelect(). Try the updated answer (just edited) again please.
