Bug in type-casting

13 December 2014 - 12:03 AM

I've encountered a bug when using implicit ref casting. All of my widget objects inherit from a Base class that then has a implicit cast for each widget type. The findWidget() method returns a reference to a Base object and then is casted to the Label object. If I try to assign the reference to a class property it can't resolve the method call for setText(). Creating a local variable works just fine.

class CobaltTheme
    private const Widgets::Label @mClock;

        @mClock = Window.findWidget("Home.Clock");    

        onTimerCallback @timerCallback = onTimerCallback(this._clockTimer);
        createTimer(1, timerCallback);

    bool _clockTimer()
        //  ERR  : No matching signatures to 'Label::setText(string) const'

        // Works fine:
        Widgets::Label @Clock = Window.findWidget("Home.Clock");
        return true;
// The Base to Label reference cast
r = engine->RegisterObjectBehaviour("Base", asBEHAVE_IMPLICIT_REF_CAST, "Label@ f()", asFUNCTION(Base::castToLabel), asCALL_CDECL_OBJLAST); assert( r >= 0 );
r = engine->RegisterObjectMethod("Window", "Widgets::Base@ findWidget(const string &in)", asMETHOD(Window, findWidget), asCALL_THISCALL); assert( r >= 0 );


Initializing array in function call

16 January 2014 - 12:01 PM

Any chance of allowing a initialization list to be used in a function call?

void test(array<string> &in); // Function definition

test({"string1", "string2"});

Or something like:

test(array<string>{"string1", "string2"});

Could you add a method to get the current default namespace?


const char *asCScriptEngine::GetDefaultNamespace() const
    return defaultNamespace->name.AddressOf();

I'm getting a segfault when registering a object with a method that returns a handle to it's self. The following code reproduces the crash:


#include <angelscript.h>
#include <stdio.h>

class IManaged {
        virtual void addRef() = 0;
        virtual void Release() = 0;

class Test : public IManaged {
        void addRef() {


        void Release() {


        Test &Foo() {
            return *this;

Test *pTest;

int main() {
    asIScriptEngine *pEngine = asCreateScriptEngine(ANGELSCRIPT_VERSION);
    asIScriptModule *Mod     = pEngine->GetModule(0, asGM_ALWAYS_CREATE);

    pTest = new Test();

    pEngine->RegisterObjectType("Test", 0, asOBJ_REF);
    pEngine->RegisterObjectBehaviour("Test", asBEHAVE_ADDREF, "void f()", asMETHOD(Test, addRef), asCALL_THISCALL);
    pEngine->RegisterObjectBehaviour("Test", asBEHAVE_RELEASE, "void f()", asMETHOD(Test, Release), asCALL_THISCALL);
    pEngine->RegisterObjectMethod("Test", "Test &Foo()", asMETHOD(Test, Foo), asCALL_THISCALL);
    pEngine->RegisterGlobalProperty("Test @pTest", pTest);

    const char *Script = "void main() { pTest.Foo(); }";

    Mod->AddScriptSection("script", Script);

    asIScriptContext *Ctx = pEngine->CreateContext();
    asIScriptFunction *Func = Mod->GetFunctionByDecl("void main()");


    return 0;


here is the backtrace:


#0  0x0000000000412682 in asCScriptEngine::CallObjectMethod (this=0x737010,
    obj=0x4c5e30 <vtable for Test+16>, i=0x7400f0, s=0x740150)

This happends on both 32 and 64-bit builds with GCC 4.7.2 (Linux)





No type id for enum values?

26 December 2012 - 10:56 AM

I'm writing a function that takes a var arg type and then identifies the type to print either the value or information about the object. Everything seems to have an Id except enum values, however they always seem to get an id of 14. Can enum values be given a typeId like the rest? Or am I missing something that allows me to identify enum values?
