This is basically saying that you already have the card you're copying. But it thinks that because it's replaced the card's unique identifier with "1".

Why did it do that? Because I misread a line of code that was unambiguous until Prettier came along and removed the brackets.

I don't think there's much worth doing about the mangled UID. No data's been lost, except that card now has a UID of 1.

Why doesn't it have a UID in the first place? Seems we should just cancel the drop if that data was somehow lost

It should always have a UID, but you never know. It could be from some weird new address book provider that doesn't automatically assign them. If needToCopyCard is true we assign a new UID so that it doesn't have the same one as the original card.

Sure you can get beta approval, but how about getting review first?

I think they do need to have an UID. We should require that.

So what do you want me to actually do here?

… bearing in mind that the change I'm proposing just puts the code back how it was before the regression I caused.

Flags: needinfo?(mkmelin+mozilla)

Maybe we just don't want to allow dragging if the card doesn't have an id to begin with (because something's wrong)? Bail out at ?

Wayne, how did you end up with the brokenness?

Flags: needinfo?(mkmelin+mozilla) → needinfo?(vseerror)

I don't know precisely. Best recollection - I had updated beta and my ABs were converted, then simply tried to drag a contact from Personal Address Book to another AB.

The card does have a UID. The code replaced it with "1" because I screwed up. This patch undoes the screw-up.

What card are we talking about that has the UID=1? So just some temporary flux no end user will see?

The card added to the destination database is given the UID 1. This error is caused at the next call to dropCard, which also assigns UID 1 to a card and tries to add it to the database.

Fortunately all this has caused is preventing the user moving cards from one address book to another, and no real damage.

I see.
Can we make it newCard._uid = needToCopyCard ? newUID() : card.UID;

  • don't allow dragging cards withough UIDs?
