You might often encounter null reference exceptions in your applications if null checks aren’t appropriately implemented. A null reference exception will abruptly terminate the execution of your program unless it is properly handled in your code. The null object pattern solves this problem, giving you an elegant way to handle null reference exceptions in your code.
This article discusses how we can implement the null object pattern in C# with relevant code examples wherever applicable. To work with the code examples provided in this article, you should have Visual Studio 2022 installed in your system. If you don’t already have a copy, you can download Visual Studio 2022 here.
