When I tried to generate attributes of a custom entity it throws a null object reference error when it tries to read the tabs of that entity ??

Can you help me on how to solve this issue ?

Can you provide your Form XML please so that I can reproduce the issue?

Hello bscarlavai ,

I think I found the problem, this exception is thrown on the function that retrieves the tabs names.

I debugged the code and it was on Notes tab where there is no "name" attribute in the XML form.

This is the code :

from elem in form.Descendants("tabs")  .Descendants("tab")          

   select elem.Attribute("name").Value;


I added where condition ( where elem.Attribute("name") !=null  ) and it works now.

Great, glad you were able to resolve it.  Thanks for the find, I'll update the code.
