View Full Version : TreeModel in TreeGrid accepting null child

3 Jun 2010, 8:22 PM
I am using GWT 2.0 and GXT 2.1

I am using TreeGrid to show some list of configuration, each config will have their own child items

unknowingly i tried to add a null child to a parent config. But the compiler not giving the proper message. It throws a Null pointer exception in some where else.

in adopt(child)->getParentInternal() while checking for the parent its throwing the exception.

Its very complex to identify what is the exact problem. Please fix it

Null models are not supported and lead to unexpected behaviours

Yes, you are correct

but it doesn't have proper notification,

14:58:34.508 [ERROR] [mast] Uncaught exception escaped
java.lang.NullPointerException: null
at com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.data.BaseTreeModel.getParentInternal(BaseTreeModel.java:204)
at com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.data.BaseTreeModel.adopt(BaseTreeModel.java:209)

at com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.data.BaseTreeModel.add(BaseTreeModel.java:62)
at com.alert.AlertsConfigSummaryPanel$9.componentSelected(AlertsConfigSummaryPanel.java:293)

In AlertConfigSummaryPanel i have unknowingly added a null child to parent. But from the stack trace the i cant find my child is null, it is very difficult to find out

If you delete your important windows system files, windows also does not tell you that, it simple stops starting.

However, i will look so we add asserts for this. This is not really a bug, that is why it was moved out the correct place. Also for next time, oyu have to read the bugforum guidelines
