List view getListItemXmlAttributes method fails with child publication items

List view getListItemXmlAttributes method fails with child publication items

I have created a JS class to populate SG/Folder list view data, when items are modified. (As per Jaime’s approach)
Everything works great when I operate on items in the publication they’re created in.
Ex: I open a component or page and the custom locked by column immediately updates and shows my user name.
However, when I go to a child publication and repeat that process, I get the window asking if I want to localize or edit the parent item. If I select to edit the parent window, the code doesn’t work. I haven’t quite figured it out yet with initial debugging. Chrome seems to swallow the error, Firefox gives me a cryptic:

Timestamp: 6/22/2012 3:42:54 PM
Error: uncaught exception: [Exception… “Component returned failure code: 0x80004002

location: “JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/tabbrowser.xml :: :: line 545”
data: no]

Does anyone have any initial ideas? I’ll try to post some code later on…

Solution 1:

[Exception… “Component returned failure code: 0x80004002
(NS_NOINTERFACE) [nsIWebProgress.DOMWindow]”

This means that there was no window assigned to the nsIWebProgress object. So it has nowhere to display data.

nsresult: “0x80004002 (NS_NOINTERFACE)” location: “JS frame ::
chrome://browser/content/tabbrowser.xml :: :: line 545” data: no]

This is telling you what file is associated with that error. and what line it faulted on.

But the real key is the NS_NOINTERFACE error. Which means the interface has not been registered.

You are using Type.enableInterface(). Is that a custom method you are declaring somewhere else ? I don’t see it. You might want to change that to .registerInterface()

See this link Type Class and Type.registerInterface()
