    Getting a runtime error in ContainerController

    josh_on Community Member

      Using SDK 4.5.0.20967

      The error is thrown on line 3182:

       

       

      while (containerListIndex == -1 && floatIndex > 0)

      {

           floatIndex--;

           floatInfo = _composedFloats[floatIndex - 1];

           containerListIndex = _floatsInContainer.indexOf(floatInfo.graphic);

      }

       

      floatIndex is 1 when it enters the loop,

      then it is decresed to 0,

      then null gets assigned to floatInfo - when it is looking for:  _composedFloats[-1]

      Then it throws an error when it tries to access a property on floatInfo - which is set to null

       

      Here is the error:

       

       

      TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.

      I am not sure exactly how I am triggering this - I am trying to discern that - but if you have any thoughts - please let me know.

          Here is an example of the bug, the yellow box in the TextFlow is an InlineGraphicElement.

          Click the red box at the bottom of the flow to start adding text.

          It crashes once the InlineGraphicElement is pushed out of the visible area of the container.

          http://www.theyrule.net/test/tlf_images/SingleContainerTest.swf

          This was published using the SDK 4.5.0.20967

           

          Here is the same file published with HERO - which still has the other inlineGraphic alignment problem - but does not have the runtime error:

            It can be reproduced with SDK 4.5 (tlf 2.0.232 in it). But your code works well without any runtime error when compiled with tlf 3.0.5 on my machine, which is not released officially to the outside of Adobe.


            I'm not sure when flex team will add tlf 3.0 into their SDK.

            • 3. Re: Getting a runtime error in ContainerController

              I will ask my workmate whether we can release a 3.0 tlf on https://sourceforge.net/adobe/tlf/home/ next week.

              I'm not sure the time point is all right. Pls wait for the reply.

                Thanks,

                Will this fix be back ported into TLF 2.x?

                We are looking for a stable version of TLF 2 to get out our next release, scheduled for June 1.

                We would also like to make use of a common RSL swz file such as:

                  I'm trying to connect with Flex guys. But I'm not sure of the result.

                    I can not find a work around to this bug.
                    I have updated our code to use TLF 2 - but cannot deploy it because of this.

                    We are in a bind.

                    There are a growing number of complaints in this forum about this bug - I suspect it will be widespread.

                    There is no version of TLF 2 available which is usable - I think it would be a great mistake not to back-port the fix for this bug into TLF 2.

                      We have realized our mistake and want to back port the fix to the the old version of TLF. It need a lot of tests and processes. And we cannot control the time point when flex team will pick up our build. TLF and Flex are not the same team. We are begging flex team to pick up new TLF build these days...Picking up new build also need a lot of test.

                            TLF 2.1 has been released with several bug fixes but without new features. Flex SDK may pick up it this autumn.

                              IMHO it should be a priority to get the fixes to the runtime errors included in the SDK. I will try the 2.1 update as sson as I can.

                                Does TLF 2.1 fix this bug? Where can I find TLF2.1?

                                  Thanks I see the latest TLF 2.1 files.  It still hasn't been included in the Flex SDK  - is there any indication that it will be?

                                  Also I could not find an Adobe hosted swz file at: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/tlf/2.1.0.006/textLayout_2.1.0.006 .swz

                                  I came up with that URL from the BUILD and BRANCH numbers in the TextLayoutVersion class - which correspond in the 2.0 builds e.g: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/tlf/2.0.0.232/textLayout_2.0.0.232 .swz

                                  Is there any indication when TLF 3.0 will be included in the Flex SDK or in the IDE?

                                  Thanks

                                    TLF 2.1 won't be included.

                                    TLF 3.0 will probably be in Flex SDK next year.

                                      Can you put up a signed swz file for TLF 2.1 - so that users can cache it?

                                        I uploaded a SWZ to https://sourceforge.net/projects/tlf.adobe/files/2.1/6/

                                         

                                        PS: I don't think sourceforge.net can be RSL server, because it redirects you to a new link when downloading and there is time stamp within the redirection link.

                                        You may want to find a server for yourself.

                                          No free service will tolerate hosting this file - we have a 1 gigabit per second connection which would be saturated by this. I understood that the point of hosting these files on the Flash player server was that Adobe was treating these swz files much like the player itself.  Something that can be downloaded once and cached and is useful for multiple third parties.  One of the reasons that we adopted TLF in the first place was because despite the fact that it had a large Actionscript overhead - that code would be centrally hosted by Adobe and used by many third party sites.

                                           

                                          Is there anyway that you can have this swz hosted at the regular location: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/tlf/...

                                            Usually, Flex SDK pick up one build of tlf and then upload the swz to that server.

                                            We will have a try.

                                             

                                            But I prefer to upload a tlf 3.0 swz, because I think for now using 2.1 is meaningless.

                                            1. There is still RTE found in 2.1, but which cannot be reproduced in 3.0.

                                            2. In 3.0, there are only one simple feature, performance enhancement and dozens of bug fixes. We did not change the framework and APIs. Since both 2.1 and 3.0 have never go through the tests of Flex SDK, why not to choose 3.0.

                                            3. We are focusing on and sell our 3.0 and don't plan to make any changes on 2.1.

                                              Do you know when the earliest date that the 3.0 swz will be uploaded? Could that happen before next year?

                                               

                                              Thanks.

                                                We are trying to get the access to upload rsl on that server. If we got the access, rsl will be there soon. But I cannot promise you the time. I will tell you here if state changes.

                                                  Hi.

                                                   

                                                  I've noticed that TLF 3.0 was launched on sourceforge.

                                                  My question is: how can i update my flex sdk to use the new TLF?

                                                  I've copied the new folders of TLF 3.0 over the old ones but that does not help.

                                                    I'd like to +1 the questions about integrating the tlf 2.1 (waiting for the 3.0swz) to my project.

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    In flashBuilder i have 3 projects:

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    2 library projects representing my appFramework (core and utils)

                                                    1 appProject

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    In my libraries projects the framework linkage is external.

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    In parallele in my app Project

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    So far no luck

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    I also tried in a release build i did to savagely paste textLayout_2.1.0.6.swz and rename it like the 2.0... one i had (I thought it worked for a second but unfortunatly didn't)

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    Any hints on a way to use the fixed lib instead of the 2.0 ?

                                                     

                                                     

                                                    Thanks in advance

                                                      1. rsl libraries in frameworks\libs are just copies of the libraries on the server. They are not linked in your runtime.

                                                      2. it should work that you change link configuration of sdk. But http://sourceforge.net/projects/tlf.adobe/files/2.1/6/textLayout2.0.0.6.swz will be redirect to another place when you try to download the that swz...So the link showed on sourceforge cannot work. URL for SWZ should always be a direct link. Please wait for the RSL library on Adobe hosted server or you put RSL libraries on your own server.

                                                        If you set project as Merge-Into-Code, just place the textlayout.swc in folder \frameworks\libs.

                                                        If set as Runtime-Shared-Library, you need to change the URL in configuration file frameworks\flex-config.xml.

                                                          I've copied the textLayout.swc file into the \frameworks\libs folder but i keep getting the same error.

                                                          Only now I can't see the content of the ContainerController class.

                                                          The stack trace only indicates that the error comes from the updateGraphics method.

                                                           

                                                          Are you certain that there isn't anything else to do in order to make the TLF 3.0 work in the flex SDK?

                                                          Is there an Ant build neccesary?

                                                                        You can try the RSL on Adobe server http://download.macromedia.com/pub/swz/tlf/3.0.0.29/textLayout_3.0.0.29.swz http://download.macromedia.com/pub/swz/tlf/3.0.0.29/textLayout_3.0.0.29.swf

Granted it was nice of your team to fix the bugs and get a new version ready but if we cant use it... I feel frustrated because our project has already been coded using text flow v3 but if we cant offer it to the public then what was the point? All of that development was wasted as now we will need to downgrade back to mx components.

                                                                            I also do not understand how there is a "delay" in the uploading process.

                                                                            Did you physically upload the files to the server or did you submit the files to someone else who will upload to the server?

Do remember that the link of sourceforge.net cannot be the link for rsl in the configuration file, because there is a re-direction on that website.  For http://download.macromedia.com issue, I have communicated with related colleagues. Sorry for that delay. That server is an Adobe hosted server. It needs to be really cautious to upload something onto Adobe hosted server.

Yes my intention is to host the files myself as i would not expect my project to rely on the servers of someone else outside of my control.

                                                                                Are these files signed with only test certificates? Is the swf and swz able to be used by the general public's version of flash player?

                                                                                  I just tried running my project using the new textLayout_3.0.0.29.swz and the error is back. The same error that exsisted in TLF2 which was fixed in version 3 is now back when using the swz. How did that happen? Was build 29 swz accidently compiled with version 2 code?

                                                                                   

                                                                                  The error is when using textflow in a spark textarea. If you include an image with EditManager.insertInlineGraphic() an error happens once the graphic scrolls out of the visible area and into the scroll buffer. If i do not use textLayout_3.0.0.29.swz and only use the textLayout.swc from http://sourceforge.net/projects/tlf.adobe/files/3.0/current/textLayout_build.zip/download the error does not happen.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  Why do you think the error happens with the swz but not when using the build 29 source directly?

                                                                                  Was there a mistake in building the swz? How can this be fixed?

                                                                                  However, depending on your answer about if build 29 swz was compiled with a test certificate or not, all of this might not matter if we can not use the swz at the production level.

                                                                                    Firstly, those newly uploaded swz & swf are signed with Adobe certificate. So they are able to be used by the general public's version of flash player.  For the error, I think it's your fault. "C:\Vellum\branches\v2\2.0\dev\output\openSource\textLayout\src\flas hx\textLayout\container\ContainerController.as" is definitely the absolute path on your PC, right? You are compiling with 2.0 code. Please search in the forum for RSL configurations. You are supposed to change flex-config.xml, replace the swc and swf in SDK, replace the link for SWZ, and so on.
