Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-902) iOS 6 - deal with new Privacy functionality in Contacts (ABAddressBook:: ABAddressBookCreateWithOptions)
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2012 13:01:09 GMT


Becky Gibson commented on CB-902:

On quick inspection of your code I do see a few things that might be an issue.  First, iOS
does not support displayName as specified in the docs:  "displayName: This property is not
supported by iOS and will be returned as null unless there is no ContactName".  Can you try
setting one of the other name fields just to see if that makes a difference?

I do my best to handle displayName in the code and I'll try and double check to make sure
that is not the reason for the crash. Also, you should not be setting the - that
field gets set by the mobile operating system when the contact is saved.  Also, what version
of iOS are you using?  I assume at least 4.1 (and 4.3 if you are using xcode 4.5).  I think
4.1 is the minimum required to use blocks (which is where you are seeing the crash).

> Currently crashes if the user does not have AddressBook permission on iOS 6.
> The user will get a popup dialog similar to the Geolocation permissions dialog. When
creating an address book, we should handle the condition where the app does not have permission,
and the address book returned is NULL.
