Rule:  7@608

Synopsis:Always check the result of an as operation
Severity Level:2
Category:Object oriented


If you use as to obtain a certain interface reference from an object, always ensure that this operation does not return null. Failure to do so may cause a NullReferenceException at a later stage if the object did not implement that interface.
