Crash bug in (Border)BoxLayout.add()

Postby AaronAcephalous on Wed Aug 08, 2007 8:58 pm

Passing undefined as the first argument to BoxLayout.add() or BorderBoxLayout.add() apparently always results in Strata crashing hard, with the XP "Kirix Strata Application has encountered a problem and needs to close" dialog. (Actually, that dialog pops up about four times before Strata finally closes. Dunno what that's about.)

Here's the script I wrote to tickle the bug:

Code: Select all
var myLayout;

var f = new crashingForm;;;

class crashingForm extends Form {
    function crashingForm() {
        super("This crashes Strata", 100, 100, 300, 400);
        myLayout = new BorderBoxLayout(Layout.Vertical);
        myLayout.add(undefined, 1, Layout.Expand);

Hope this helps!
