Subject [jira] [Updated] (FLEX-34385) Document try-catch limitation
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2014 09:59:11 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34385?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Mihai Chira updated FLEX-34385:
-------------------------------

    Description: 
A quirk of try-catch blocks in ActionScript is that the catch block won't catch Errors thrown
by code executed from listeners of events thrown in the try block. We should document this,
perhaps in UIComponent.dispatchEvent().

I think it would also be a good idea if we asked Adobe to updated the documentation under
[LoaderInfo.uncaughtErrorEvents|http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/flash/display/LoaderInfo.html#uncaughtErrorEvents]
and the description of the [UncaughtErrorEvents class|http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/flash/events/UncaughtErrorEvents.html]
to include this.

See [the mailing list discussion thread|http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/flex-users/201406.mbox/%3CCAP1cEXG7ydjCM8GFEbQ32JhF0kDhC_DEUTuOaF0ynfGo8TSyaw@mail.gmail.com%3E]
for more information.
