What is wrong with this code, i allways get this error:
"System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I've got it, it was just a silly mistake.

Changed:
[code] while (ent.Status == PromptStatus.Error)
{
ent = ed.GetEntity(entopts);
}[/code]
To:
[code] do
{
ent = ed.GetEntity(entopts);
} while (ent.Status == PromptStatus.Error);[/code]

and so on.
