I am getting a null exception point from ParseFile ?

The parse file returns null, which cause the second line to throw a null exception point. this is the code :

ParseFile UriFile = message.getParseFile("files");

Uri dataUri = Uri.parse(UriFile.getUrl());

were you able to find out what the problem was? i seem to have the same one

check your app in parse.com to see if you have included the parsefile in the message.

make sure that you have this line of code when creating the message message.put(ParseConstants.KEY_FILE, file);

yes i do have it in my recipientsActivity class but it isnt creating the object on parse.com. so i dont really seem what the issue is :/

thanks for the reply and help ! i got it to work. i just used a different parse account and reseted the ip key and it magically worked ! thanks a bunch again
