    Default Creating an object of SelectedTag

    The code to do create an instance of class SelectedTag is as follow:
    Tag[] array;
      array = new Tag[4];
      array[1] = new Tag();
      SelectedTag d = new SelectedTag(2,array);
    The error is in line 4 which results in java.lang.NullPointerException.

    Default Re: Creating an object of SelectedTag

    Perhaps the exception is occurring within the SelectedTag constructor.

    That's only a guess. Consider posting some code that compiles but throws that exception when it is run. Make the code as simple and short as possible to illustrate the problem.
