KickStarter.player.portraitIcon.Reset (); gives error in both v1.71.0 and 1.71.1

edited May 9 in Technical Q&A

Hi, I just found this script KickStarter.player.portraitIcon.Reset (); gives the following error message in both v1.71.0 & 1.71.1. Is the API changed or would that be a bug? I am using the script in a MonoBehaviour script that is attached to the Inventory Menu UI.

NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

  • Menus are spawned in before the Player, so it's "KickStarter.player" that is null if you're calling this in OnEnable.

    Try moving this call to the Start function, or wrapping a null-check around it, i.e.:

    if (KickStarter.player != null)
        KickStarter.player.portraitIcon.Reset ();
  • Thanks! It's fixed!
