  • .NET Core Version: (e.g. 3.0 Preview1, or daily build number, use dotnet --info)
  • Windows version: Windows 10 17025
  • Does the bug reproduce also in WPF for .NET Framework 4.8?: do not know

Problem description:

ObjectWriterContext.GetDestinationType may throw null reference exception when CurrentFrame.Previous is not ObjectWriterFrame.

Actual behavior:

The code is in wpf/src/Microsoft.DotNet.Wpf/src/System.Xaml/System/Xaml/Context/ObjectWriterContext.cs

    internal XamlType GetDestinationType()
        ObjectWriterFrame frame = _stack.CurrentFrame;

        if (frame == null)
            return null;

        if (frame.Instance != null && frame.XamlType == null) // when true
            // Text/TypeConverter, we need to go up a frame
            frame = frame.Previous as ObjectWriterFrame; // when the  frame.Previous is not ObjectWriterFrame that the frame is null

        // for frame is null, calling the frame.Member will break
        if (frame.Member == XamlLanguage.Initialization) 
            return frame.XamlType;
        return frame.Member.Type;

if (frame.Member == XamlLanguage.Initialization)

Expected behavior:

We should check the frame = frame.Previous as ObjectWriterFrame; and the frame is not null.

Minimal repro:
