0.9.0 throws NullReferenceException

Mar 9, 2011 at 1:17 PM

Hi all,

I just downloaded the latest version (0.9.0).  I'm getting a NullReferenceException that I wasn't getting previously.

Here's the call stack:

My application code is:

HttpContext.Current.Items[modelPage] = new Jint.JintEngine();
engine = HttpContext.Current.Items[modelPage] as Jint.JintEngine;
engine.SetParameter("Page", p_control.Page); // error thrown here

p_control.Page is a ASP.NET page, the code-behind of which is inherited from a custom class, WebUtilities.Page, which has a property BreadcrumbGuid with a public getter and an internal setter.

The bit of Jint code that seems to be making the trouble in WrapSetProperty is:

MethodInfo info = prop.GetSetMethod();
var code = dm.GetILGenerator();
if (!info.IsStatic) {

It's assuming that there IS a set method, but in this case, there isn't.  I can try to make a simple test case in the 0.9.0 branch, but I don't have time right now to try to come up with a fix.

For now, I'll keep using my locally patched version of 0.8.9 (with a fix I needed that is in 0.9.0) and add to the patch a different version of of Antlr (which I need because I'm also using NHibernate.)

Thank you again for the great tool.  Cheers!

Here's the test case.

public class ClassWithPropertyWithPublicSetterAndInternalGetter
    public Guid? JustAGuid
        internal set;

public void AddClassWithPublicGetInternalSet()
    Jint.JintEngine engine = new Jint.JintEngine();
    var testInstance = new ClassWithPropertyWithPublicSetterAndInternalGetter();

    engine.SetParameter("testInstance", testInstance);

Error Message:

Test method Jint.Tests.Fixtures.AddClassWithPublicGetInternalSet threw exception:
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

So I looked at the Jint code (I need this to be working for me ASAP) and I made the following change:

        /// <summary>
        /// Marshals a native property to a descriptor
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="prop">Property to marshal</param>
        /// <param name="owner">Owner of the returned descriptor</param>
        /// <returns>A descriptor</returns>
        public NativeDescriptor MarshalPropertyInfo(PropertyInfo prop, JsDictionaryObject owner)
            JsGetter getter;
            JsSetter setter = null;

            if (prop.CanRead && prop.GetGetMethod() != null) // I added "&& prop.GetGetMethod() != null" to match change below.
                getter = WrapGetProperty(prop);
                getter = delegate(JsDictionaryObject that)
                    return JsUndefined.Instance;

            if (prop.CanWrite && prop.GetSetMethod() != null) // I added " && prop.GetSetMethod() != null".
                setter = (JsSetter)WrapSetProperty(prop);

            return setter == null ? new NativeDescriptor(owner, prop.Name, getter) { Enumerable = true } : new NativeDescriptor(owner, prop.Name, getter, setter) { Enumerable = true };

I am not claiming that this is correct, only that 1) it works for me, and 2) the new test case, as well as any existing test cases, work.

it has been fixed already and exactly the way you've post ;) see change set f742cf156dd1.

Oh, awesome.  Next time I will check the issue tracker!  Thanks!  =)
