[ALOY-1526] Special text property value is not parsed correctly

GitHub Issuen/a
Resolution Date2016-10-27T03:37:34.000+0000
Affected Version/salloy 1.9.2
Fix Version/sRelease 6.0.0, Release 6.1.0
AssigneeFeon Sua Xin Miao


In the new version we found an error... We get a compiler error. This is caused in the XML file by text="#js:dtgL('report46')" Fun fact when i build the project via command line : ti build —platform ios it works... so it has to be something in the Studio itsself

    Hello, please share the full code of the xml file. We need to see where and how you are using the text property. Thanks.

    I attached a complete example... I had to delete some icons because of the 10MB restriction.

    My comment was invalid... i got a successfull build but can not install it on a device. Also the launch in simulator is not possible. When i use the verion 5.4.0 i am able to build, but not start When i use 5.5.1 the compiler is aborting the operation. :(

    Did we make any progress on this? I am able to launch the simulator via terminal. But i need to profle my app to see the bottle necks in my app. Further i am not able to package my app into a new .ipa

    Hi hope your all well. I need to make progress on this. I getting in real trouble if i can not deliver any app in the next days.

    PR: https://github.com/appcelerator/alloy/pull/800 *To Test* 1. Create an app, update index.xml with <Label text="#js:dtgL('report46')"></Label> 2. Run the app, there should be no alloy compilation error.

    Might need to backport this for 6_0_X appc-cli.
  8. Feon Sua Xin Miao 2016-10-27

    For backport, we need to merge the PR then update app-cli.

    alloy@1.9.4 is included in 6.0.0-67.
  11. kreutzer 2016-10-27

    Brilliant, but a small question how do i get the mentioned version?
  12. Chee Kiat Ng 2016-10-27

    [~kreutzer] that's a pre-release that will be released next monday (PST). It's coupled with the 6.0.0 RC release. you can get it by doing this in command line appc use 6.0.0-67 by then. Or you can get the GA version when it's released later in November 10. you just have to do appc use latest
