Hi Katleho

I’ve just recreated the same schema as you have in your ‘Users’ table of your app and tried your code in plain Java app. Logic works fine, when i’m logging in a “Coach” and “Admin”. The only Backendless API that I see in your snippet is getting currently logged in user, which works as expected.
Debug your code in order to find out at what line your NPE occurs and what’s the reason for it. CurrentUser() API is not user-dependent and works exactly the same for any logged in user within Users table

Turns out it i had deleted the line connecting to the textview, the i couldnt find it sooner is because i was relying on the debugger, thanks though.
