Regression -- Popup Window of "href" of ListItem is Blocked by Chrome

Reported by: Ming Zhe Huang Owned by: Dustin Machi
Priority: high Milestone: 1.7
Component: DojoX Mobile Version: 1.6.1
Keywords: regression Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


This should be another regression after the change in transition... Please see the attached HTML. If you open it in Chrome/Safari?, clicking "Test" will NOT show the popup window. Instead, the popup window is blocked by the browser. I've tried non-webkit browsers, including IE9, FF4, Opera. All of them allow the popup window. Some investigation indicates that this should be due to the refactoring of transition. Now we're using ViewController? to handle the transition event. It's a global event handler. However, it seems that Webkit will block popup window if it's triggered in global scope. I tried to pop up the window in the click handler of ListItem? and it works.

dmachi, please take a look. I have no idea if simply moving it back to ListItem can be a solution.

It seems that when TransitionEvent? calls on.emit which then calls dispatchEvent, the new event handler runs in a separate call stack and thus userGestureEvent is returning false. Calling from TransitionEvent? works fine. I think ViewController? would have to queue onStartTransition actions back to the original event handler to be executed after on.emit returns, which is really ugly.

Please see the proposed patch. I pull the window popping-up logic back to where it should be, because it's NOT related to any kind of Transition.

By the way, test_iPhone-SwapView?-demo.html and test_iPhone-SwapView?-demo-async.html can be used to verify the fix on ListItem?.

I altered test_iPhone-Icon.html to verify the fix on IconItem?.

The patches do work, though I'm not sure why you wouldnt' consider this as related to a transition. Seems like that is exactly what it is doing here, but for today at least these patches are probably simplest fix...though I'm not sure its the correct way yet. I'll apply these patches and then take a look at this issue again for 1.8.
