Subject [jira] [Updated] (FLEX-35043) Unexpected behaviour of ListCollectionView.itemUpdated() when only one parameter supplied
Date Wed, 02 Mar 2016 08:54:18 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35043?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Mihai Chira updated FLEX-35043:
-------------------------------
    Description: 
See the unit tests in mx/collections/ListCollectionView_PropertyChangeEvent_Tests.as which
are tagged (in a comment, above the function) with FLEX-35043.

When calling itemUpdated(item) on a collection with only the first parameter provided (which
developers usually do to signal that some - unspecified - properties of the item have changed),
ListCollectionView.handlePropertyChangeEvents() would treat that as if the object has been
just introduced to the collection, replacing a null value - since oldValue was null, and property
was also null. (That's because the "property" value of the PropertyChangeEvent was null, which
was taken to mean that the oldValue - which was also null - was changed into that item, i.e.
the object reference changed in the collection, not just one of the object's properties.)
As such, it would try to remove that supposedly existing null value from the collection (and
sometimes a null does exist, but shouldn't be removed).
