Error - Cannot call property in Global Scope

Postby bcusick » Wed Jan 23, 2019 7:46 pm

Getting error:
Cannot call property downloadPublications in GlobalScope [ ... all global objects here ... ] It is not a function, it is "object".

It's clearly a FUNCTION:

Code: Select all
/**
* @param {String} searchStr - what to search by
* @param {String} [newRecLogReason] - for new pub creation
*
* @AllowToRunInFind
* @properties={typeid:24,uuid:"61299336-0241-4456-8DBA-56F82DA002E5"}
*/
function downloadPublications(searchStr,newRecLogReason) {
   
   var isSingle = 0;

        -------- other code here -----------
}
   



This happens in SMART CLIENT ONLY - not WebClient.

The code that makes the call is very simple:

Code: Select all
try{
      
      //get the pub info
      var x = scopes.globals.downloadPublications(searchStr,reason);
      
      
   } catch(e) {
      
      application.output("ERROR: " + e.message + "\n" + e.stack, LOGGINGLEVEL.ERROR);
      scopes.globals.DIALOGS.showErrorDialog("ERROR","ERROR: " + e.message + "\n" + e.stack,"OK")
      
   } finally {
   ---------
}


Any ideas???

that is really weird, seems to be quite straightforward code that is done many times in solutions..
so no idea what is so special about that and why only in smart, is that also the case when running from developer?

my feeling is that the export is doing wrong somehow
So really exporting and importing it once in a clean application server install with a clean repository, does it then behave the same?
