Referencing items within a layer

Layer clipLayer;
clipLayer = level.getLayerByName("clip");
if (clipLayer.Items.Count > 0)

It claims that clipLayer is a null object, and it won't compile. The layer "clip" does exist in my map, and I can assume this is not a problem with my map because as it stands, it isn't even detecting clipLayer as a list (though i looked through level.cs and confirmed it is indeed a list).

The purpose of this code is to retrieve all the items from a layer, and store them to create geoms in farseer for map collisions.

Please help with this

Hi keres

won't compile because of a null object? I think you are mixing runtime with compile-time errors here.

So what exactly happens when you press F5? Have you tried to debug it line by line? Which line throws the error?

And if you send me your level XML file I could try this here.
