ATTENTION !!! This personal blog no longer gets new posts

Please follow the official XAF Team and XPO Team blogs, which are regularly updated by me and other DevExpress members.
Thanks, Dennis.

In XAF, users of the Model Editor and Report Designer tools are likely to be affected by this issue. Well, advanced users who enabled the ShowPropertyGrid property in the layout control or made custom PropertyGridControl integrations may be affected too - at least we all know a few😉

Our XtraVerticalGrid developers are aware of this problem and have already fixed it in v18.1.4 (it should be out in 1.5-2 weeks). In the meantime, the hotfix is already available for download at T638535: PropertyGridControl - The NullReferenceException is thrown when scrolling and an editor is active. Please accept sincerely apologies from our XAF, XtraReports and XtraVerticalGrid teams for all the inconvenience here.

Here is the error callstack for your reference:

System.NullReferenceException at DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.PGEditingState.MouseWheel(DevExpress.Utils.MouseWheelScrollClientArgs) at DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.BaseHandler.DevExpress.Utils.IMouseWheelScrollClient.OnMouseWheel(DevExpress.Utils.MouseWheelScrollClientArgs) at DevExpress.Utils.MouseWheelScrollHelper.OnScrollLine(DevExpress.Utils.DXMouseEventArgs, Int32, Boolean) at DevExpress.Utils.MouseWheelScrollHelper.OnMouseWheel(System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) at DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.BaseHandler.OnMouseWheel(System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) at DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.VGridControlBase.OnMouseWheelCore(System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) at DevExpress.XtraEditors.Container.EditorContainer.OnMouseWheel(System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmMouseWheel(System.Windows.Forms.Message ByRef) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(System.Windows.Forms.Message ByRef) at DevExpress.XtraEditors.Container.EditorContainer.WndProc(System.Windows.Forms.Message ByRef) at DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.VGridControlBase.WndProc(System.Windows.Forms.Message ByRef) at System.Windows.Forms.Control+ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(System.Windows.Forms.Message ByRef) at System.Windows.Forms.Control+ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(System.Windows.Forms.Message ByRef) at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.DebuggableCallback(IntPtr, Int32, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Tip 1: The How to obtain a design-time exception call stack KB article describes how to locate these important error details, especially if your Visual Studio crashed. This information is helpful when submitting to support. BTW, to improve your chances of getting a faster and helpful answer from support, check these related tips as well:
   How do I ask a good question? (StackOverFlow)
   How to Report Bugs Effectively (Simon Tatham)
   A request for simple example programs (Julian Bucknall)
   Collect and Analyze the Diagnostic Information (XAF documentation)

Tip 2: When you located the call stack information and determined from it that an exception is raised from DevExpress code, I recommend you search for one or several topmost call stack method names in our support database. This behavior might be reported by someone else, e.g.:

  2. This is a great post.I am going to write on this topic based on your writing.
