Three things:   When quoting code, do it exactly, and without wordwrap 
in your mail program.  There are so many typos in that code sample that 
it's useless, presumably because you didn't use copy/paste.

When quoting an error message, get it all.  Since you omit the 
stacktrace part, we can't tell what line might be giving you that error.

Once you've noticed which line, just examine the types of each of the 
elements you're combining.  If you're using the + operator, and the left 
operand is a string, then the right one must also be string.  Figure out 
why it's not and you have your own answer.
