deletePublishedCollection : No info.photoIds

Feb 26, 2012 6:50 AM



I'm trying to use deletePublishedCollection function.


However i don't retrieve  info.photoIds . I have always nil in this element of info structure.


I did'nt retrieve in the documentation that this element of structure exist. But all examples are using it ???


I don't understand.


Do I do initialize something when I did the export as i did it to retrieve info.remoteId ? 


some help will be pleasant


The code I copyed from sample (ZenPhoto/Flicker) isbelow  (I reduced in maximum the function and delte all test. But I never go inside the 'for' loop)


function publishServiceProvider.deletePublishedCollection( publishSettings, info )

import 'LrFunctionContext'.callWithContext( 'publishServiceProvider.deletePublishedCollection', function( context )


        local progressScope = LrDialogs.showModalProgressDialog {

                            title = LOC( "$$$/Chouette38/DeletingCollectionAndContents=Deleting photoset ^[^1^]", ),

                            functionContext = context }


            for i, photoId in ipairs( info.photoIds ) do

                Chouette38API.deletePhoto( publishSettings, { photoId = photoId } )


        end )

    If you look at the documentation for the deletePublishedCollection() callback you are using, the info table does not contain a photoIds field.


    To get the list of images you are looking for I think you will need to use something like:

    info.publishedCollection:getPublishedPhotos() returns an array of LrPublishedPhoto.  publishedPhoto:getRemoteId() returns the remote id.

    John has answered question 2. As to question 1, that looks like an error in

    the sample code. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.


    Thanks, Matt
