Crash on closing Label::TextEditor on iOS

When testing an iOS build of a standalone plugin, I’m seeing a reproducible crash:

There are two editable labels (dynamically created).
When dismissing the virtual keyboard (with “return”) while editing the second label, I get the following output from asan:

_BSMachError: port 8003; (os/kern) invalid capability (0x14) "Unable to insert COPY_SEND"

This is with JUCE 6.0.8 on a device running iOS 10.

Can you post some code that reproduces this? I’m struggling to get asan to complain here. I’m using an iPad running iOS 14, but I’ve also tried a simulator device running iOS 10 with no luck.

I can maybe see how this could happen if the call to handleKeyPress() in UIViewComponentPeer::textViewReplaceCharacters() causes the text editor to be dismissed.

Can you try your test case with the following modification to that method?

        if (text == "\r" || text == "\n" || text == "\r\n")
            handleKeyPress (KeyPress::returnKey, text[0]);
        else
            target->insertTextAtCaret (text);

        if (findCurrentTextInputTarget() != nullptr)
            updateHiddenTextContent (target);

That sounds about right. Thanks, I’ll try that and report back, if it doesn’t fix it I’ll create a small example project that reproduces the issue.

I can confirm this occurs on iOS 14 in the simulator too.

Sorry for the delay. Finally got a simplified project to demonstrate the issue. The suggested fix did not remedy the crash.

It is not completely consistent, but you can replicate the behaviour by pressing Return a number of times in the iOS Simulator.

Thanks for the example - I was able to reproduce the crash and have pushed a fix here:

Thanks @ed95 that fixed it :slight_smile:

I found another similar bug, triggered in our app but not via the example above, when a TextEditor is deleted while being focused. The following addition fixed it for me:

Thanks, I’ve added that here:
