wxWebViewHandler::GetFile() assumed to return non NULL.

Patch: yes


In osx/, in the implementation of WebViewCustomProtocol startLoading, the result of GetFile is assumed to be non NULL. The msw and gtk WebView implementations appear to check for and handle NULL results. You can check the behaviour by running the webview sample and attempting to load a nonexistent location from the wxWebViewFSHandler "memory", such as "memory:test". The resulting backtrace is:

Program received signal EXC_BAD_ACCESS, Could not access memory.
Reason: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at address: 0x0000000000000010

  • Patch set

This minimal patch checks if GetFile() returns NULL and in that case calls NSURLProtocolClient -URLProtocol: didFailWithError:. The error uses is a NSURLErrorFileDoesNotExist (this seemed reasonably appropriate).

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [74239]) Don't crash in wxWebView under OS X if custom URI is invalid.

Don't assume that wxWebViewHandler::GetFile() always returns a valid pointer,
it may fail and return NULL, e.g. for a non-existent VFS location.

Closes #15254.
