#7856 closed defect (fixed)

[CLA] IE: Removing a shape with a gradient fill throws an error

The attached test file creates a surface, then a shape, then fills it with a gradient. Attempting to remove the shape from the surface throws an error on IE only: "colors is null or not an object" (I think that's the correct text), in this case debugged to line 63 of vml.js. I think this defect is valid for all types of gradients though, as similar code is reused on line 106.

A simple solution would be to change line 33 of vml.js from



if(!fill || !this.rawNode.fill){

However, there seems to be a larger issue here, that the shape is attempting to be filled when it's supposed to be removed. I don't see any other way to remove/destroy an element.

I traced this down a bit. Removing a shape goes through the following steps:
1) Find the shape in the list of children
2) Call _setParent(null, null) on the shape
2a) Set the shape's parent to null
2b) Call _updateParentMatrix
2ba) Set the shape's parentMatrix
2bb) call _applyTransform() on the shape *
3) Remove the shape from the list of children

The issue lies in the * step. At this point, the node is attempted to be redrawn (which includes filling it). It seems that, in the case of removing a shape, _applyTransform() shouldn't be called.

The patch attached seems to fix the issue and still allows the add/remove test case (test_group2.html) to work properly.
