Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34472) ResourceManager.getInstance().getString() returns "undefined" instead of null
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2014 07:58:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34472?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14240784#comment-14240784

Alexander Scheibe commented on FLEX-34472:

Hey Chris, 

OK, I see we always use the forth argument for _getString(bundleName, resourceName, parameters,
*locale*)_ because we may have mixed locales. 

{code:xml}<s:Label text="{resourceManager.getString('text', 'not-a-key', null, 'en_US')}"/>{code}

results in _undefined_ because in that case _findBundle_ does not check if the resource is
present in the bundle and returns the bundle and than the String constructor comes in play.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34472
>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: Apache Flex 4.13.0
>            Reporter: Alexander Scheibe
>            Assignee: Chris Martin
> not sure who to re-open the bug https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-25045 but
the problem is there again:
> Steps to reproduce:
> 1. Create a resource bundle with key value pairs
> 2. Load the resource bundle in your application and add them to the resourcemanager instance
> 3. Use the ResourceManager.getInstance().getString() method with a key that is not in
the resource bundle
> Actual Results:
> The return value is "undefined" as a string
> Expected Results:
> The return (according to the docs) should be null
> Also the current implementation always creates a new string rather than returning a string
from the resource bundle content.
> var value:String=String(resourceBundle.content[resourceName]);
> because for strings: String(x) is the same as new String(x) and not a typecast
