Object reference not set to an instance of an object

I have a strange behaviour in this code:

    new NSAction(() => {
    this.loginController = new LoginController();
    catch (Exception ex) {
        Console.WriteLine (ex.Message);


at this line
The compiler return me the error in the thread title.
loginController is declared globally in the UIViewController class then an istance is created
before to call the method PushviewController
Please help me to understand where do I'm wrong.

    Most likely it is a null reference inside your LoginController. Put a breakpoint on the first line of LoginController.ViewDidLoad() function and see if it breaks. If it does, step through to find the null reference.

  • No It doesn't break, but the logincontroller is showed the same.
    My navigation flow is (root) LoginController->myActualview
    so when I do this.NavigationController.PushViewController(loginController,true);
    I'm going back to the first root view because I have in Appdelegate:

    //---- instantiate a new home screen 
                LoginController loginScreen = new LoginController(); 
                //---- add the home screen to the navigation controller 
                // (it'll be the top most screen) 
                rootNavigationController.PushViewController(loginScreen, false); 
                //---- set the root view controller on the window. the nav 
                // controller will handle the rest 
                this.window.RootViewController = rootNavigationController; 
                this.window.MakeKeyAndVisible ();
