Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33600) Creating a pop up from a menubar or from within Firefox crashes
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2013 22:34:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33600?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13698332#comment-13698332

Justin Mclean commented on FLEX-33600:

Any change you can provide an example that shows this?

What version of AIR were you using? Also do you know if this is an issue under Apache Flex
4.9? There has been a few fixes to the popup manager.

I tried a simple example with a menu and a dummy popup and no error occurs either on 4.6 or

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<s:WindowedApplication xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009" 
			import mx.containers.TitleWindow;
			import mx.events.MenuEvent;
			import mx.managers.PopUpManager;

			protected function menuChanged(event:MenuEvent):void
				var label:String = event.item.@label;
				// clicking on a submenu brings up a dummy TitleWindow
				if (label.search("-") >= 0) {
					PopUpManager.addPopUp(new TitleWindow(), this);
	<mx:MenuBar id="myMenuBar" labelField="@label" change="menuChanged(event)">
			<menuitem label="MenuItem A">
				<menuitem label="SubMenuItem A-1" />
				<menuitem label="SubMenuItem A-2" />
			<menuitem label="MenuItem B" />
			<menuitem label="MenuItem C" />
			<menuitem label="MenuItem D">
				<menuitem label="SubMenuItem D-1" />
				<menuitem label="SubMenuItem D-2" />
				<menuitem label="SubMenuItem D-3" />

I can see that the code could RTE but to fix need to check what happens if we put a guard
