Error Messages

Hi,

   Would suggest some more details like function name / line number etc be added in the error messages like "

2017-01-05 15:45:00 Runtime Error: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
at QuantConnect.Lean.Engine.Engine.Run (QuantConnect.Packets.AlgorithmNodePacket job, System.String assemblyPath) [0x0062b] in <fe4f845f91f54235b620d7e2b0c8b6c8>:0 "

 

   Debugging is very difficult, even with multiple Debug(""), statements in each function.

 

Regards

 

Vivek

HI Vivek, Normally error messages do give more information. Please attach the project so we can help further.

Hi Jared, 
I'd like to add that I'm facing the similar issue as Vivek.
Even on simple default project, I can see the stacktrace of methods called but won't get the line (always display ':0'). (Note that I'm quite new to QC and C# so I may miss something I didn't know about).

For example,
the below error happens when I try to run my algo back to 2006 but work on 2016-2017.

Runtime Error: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Object reference not set to an instance of an object
at QuantConnect.Algorithm.CSharp.FreedomifyAlgorithm.OnData

This means its inside of your OnData method -- and without attached code its impossible to help debug it.

Hey Jared, 
thanks for the reply and sorry if I wasn't clear.
I was just using this error message to illustrate the fact that I can't find the error's "line" in the error message.
It's not a big deal but if it is possible, knowing the error's line would really be a good feature to help saving some debug time.
