[Regression] VisualEditor: Link tool produces "undefined" in normal use
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The link tool showing "undefined" in step 5 of the bug report

  1. Hit an article on English Wikipedia and click "Edit" to invoke Visual Editor. I used
  1. Double-click any word to highlight it. I used the first word of the "History" section, "Savage".
  1. Click the Link Tool icon, and the tool pops up.
  1. Choose any article title in the dropdown (I chose "Savage Land") and press Enter.
  1. The dropdown closes, and in the tool's text input, instead of saying "Savage Land," it says "undefined." (See screenshot to be uploaded.)
  1. Now click outside the tool -- somewhere else on the article. The tool becomes completely blank (see second screenshot) and article text disappears.

Version: unspecified

This is in Chrome 25.0.1364.172 on Ubuntu Linux.

Confirmed in Chrome/Mac, Firefox/Mac and Firefox/Linux. Looks like a general critical issue.

Same for me.

In addition to Dan's step 6, i note that after step 6 I see: "TypeError: 'undefined' is not an object (evaluating 'dataElement.attributes.title')"

Seemingly not fixed at all - still broken in master/production with same behaviour as before.

Now fixed by gerrit 60907 - thanks Trevor!
