Description (last modified by dante)


I have a complex layout with an html frame using dojo, itself including iframes and plenty of javascript.

I faced a FATAL "Can't execute code from a freed script" on IE (not firefox, works fine) at some occasion when page reloads, due to some windows disappearing before dojo had time to "unregister them" apparently.

To solve this, I had to add 3 try {} catch blocks:

1/ In src/event/common.js, line 313:




try { mjp.kwAddAdvice(ao); } catch (e) { return null; }

2/ In src/event/common.js, line 452:


mjp.removeAdvice(ao.adviceObj, ao.adviceFunc, ao.adviceType, ao.once);


try { mjp.removeAdvice(ao.adviceObj,ao.adviceFunc,ao.adviceType,ao.once); } catch (e) { return null; }

3/ In src/widget/PopupContainer.js, line 376


try { if(win.PopupManagerRegistered){ dojo.event.disconnect(win.document,"onmousedown",this,"onClick"); dojo.event.disconnect(win,"onscroll",this,"onClick"); dojo.event.disconnect(win.document,"onkey",this,"onKey"); win.PopupManagerRegistered=false; } } catch (e) {}

Hope it helps, and bravo for this marvelous toolkit!!

Just a comment to say I have the same issue (but only with IE7).
My testcase is:
dojo and widgets in my page, an iframe with dojo too. Reloading the iframe leads to the javasript error.
I'm using dojo 0.4.2

Thanks for the workaround it works fine, now I am waiting for a definitive fix.

Please create a testcase for this with Dojo 1.1 and see if this is still relevant.

Could this (if it is in fact still an issue) be related to #3242

Lowering priority of this ticket as no noise on it in a while ... Not sure how to make a test case ...

look at this. I ran into a similar problem and googled it - everybody;s having this same issue and it is not related to dojo. The solution is the following:

"FIXED! About 10 minutes after posting this I found the bizarre (to me, maybe someone can explain it) solution for this problem. It was as simple as moving any meta tags before the script tags in the head element of the html document. <script><meta> = heartache <meta><script> = salvation."

Good, glad you found the solution. I'm closing this ticket; apparently there's nothing to do on dojo's end.
