PUBLISH does not allow update (SEQUENCE)


(Calendar :: E-mail based Scheduling (iTIP/iMIP), defect)

Lightning 1.6
Not set


(Not tracked)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/5.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; Tablet PC 2.0)

Steps to reproduce:

update an event already added to calendar using PUBLISH
(by using SEQUENCE=xx)

if METHOD=REQUEST in same itip email, this works.

Actual results:

IMIP bar has no buttons.

error console reports error in line 840

looking at code, it seems to recognise that update is requested, but cannot clone item in function function updateItem(item, itipItemItem) {

->lookup of UID went wrong (my speculation about it)


see below

first error:
Zeitstempel: 16.07.2012 11:24:01
Fehler: [Exception... "'[JavaScript Error: "item is undefined" {file: "resource://calendar/modules/calItipUtils.jsm" line: 840}]' when calling method: [calIOperationListener::onOperationComplete]"  nsresult: "0x80570021 (NS_ERROR_XPC_JAVASCRIPT_ERROR_WITH_DETAILS)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///C:/Users/kbuecher/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/oq7e67ge.default/extensions/%7Be2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103%7D/components/calCompositeCalendar.js :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 566"  data: yes]

following errors:

Zeitstempel: 16.07.2012 11:24:01
Fehler: item is undefined
Quelldatei: resource://calendar/modules/calItipUtils.jsm
Zeile: 840

Expected results:

display an update button in imip bar
Component: General → E-mail based Scheduling (iTIP/iMIP)
OS: All → Windows 7
Hardware: All → x86
FIX for this bug:

calItipUtils.jsm, in function onOperationComplete:

in the following block, replace newItem by item in the call of updateItem by item

wrong call: let newItem = updateItem(newItem, itipItemItem);
correct call: let newItem = updateItem(item, itipItemItem);

it is obvious that the first cannot work.

(compare also the REQUEST further down block with identical call of updateItem)

commented line: original, uncommented line: this solves the bug, update can be added to calendar.

                                case "PUBLISH":
                                    cal.ASSERT(itipItemItem.getAttendees({}).length == 0,
                                               "invalid number of attendees in PUBLISH!");
                                    if (item.calendar.getProperty("itip.disableRevisionChecks") ||
                              , item) > 0) {
                                        let newItem = updateItem(item, itipItemItem);
//                                        let newItem = updateItem(newItem, itipItemItem);
                                        let action = function(opListener) {
                                            return newItem.calendar.modifyItem(newItem, item, opListener);
                                        actionMethod = method + ":UPDATE";

all tested in lightning 1.4
FIX for 1.6: 
ItipFindItemListener.prototype = {

case "PUBLISH":

let newItem=updateItem(newItem... 
(this call is circular and cannot work)

let newItem=updateItem(item...

this is then identical to case: "REQUEST" and allows to add PUBLISHed events to a calendar

Hello klaus, thank you for reporting the problem and its investigation. I took the liberty to convert your proposed fix into a proper patch and request review from the correct calendar peer for you.

Philipp, do you think we can take this obvious bug fix for 1.9 and even perhaps 1.8?
Comment on attachment 649084 [details] [diff] [review]
allow to add PUBLISHed events to calendar, replace typo (newItem= updateItem(newItem..) by newItem= updateItem(item...))

I think we can take this for 1.8, lets do it. Thanks for the patch!
