Looks really good!

It would be nice to have a couple of more tests:

  • Applying a new torrc actually changes the config value in the running tor.
  • Applying a new torrc to a running tor that has a different value for, say, DataDirectory (which cannot be changed while tor is running), and see if the other values changed (Vidalia should apply the other values).
  • Removing a value leaves the file as expected (may be with a comment that should be left in place).
  • Same as before but adding a new value

Another thing: how does this behave with the bootstrap tests? I haven't been able to actually test those yet though.

Ok, thanks, I will update the tests.
As for bootstrap testing code, I need to work on it again. Looks like the alpha branch has introduced some changes, and the testing code wont run. To be precise, it runs, but bootstrap never goes further than first stage, so it requires more work.
Another thing is that I can't seem to even run the vidalia.exe compiled from the alpha branch, it always crashes, with this stack trace:

#0 0x6f300878 in ?? () from C:\Qt\bin\QtScript4.dll
#1 0x6f3766ac in ZNK11QScriptable8argumentEi () from C:\Qt\bin\QtScript4.dll

#7 0x00401ef6 in PluginEngine::PluginEngine(QObject*) ()
#8 0x00477aeb in MainWindow::MainWindow() ()
#9 0x0047230a in main ()

So its something related to script module. Maybe I just miss something obvious, next week I'm gonna join the irc channel anyway, so don't bother with this one.

"- Removing a value leaves the file as expected (may be with a comment that should be left in place).

this is done, branch updated
for the first two remarks, how would you do that - start tor instance "manually" (using the start(), authenticate() etc methods) or reuse mainWindow code to start it, by creating MainWindow instance ? I tried second option (which I think is better for tests), but creating MainWindow object gives me the same segmentation fault as above.

What Qt version are you using? You could add some debug prints and check whether it's the whole VidaliaTab qtscript class or just a specific part of it.

I think either option is good, as long as they do the job. You are testing Torrc, not the bootstrap.

Qt 4.7.3
after debugging, its looks like the problem is located in qtscript_VidaliaTab.cpp file, lines 235-238

QScriptValue fun = engine->newFunction(qtscript_VidaliaTab_prototype_call,qtscript_VidaliaTab_function_lengths[i+1]);
fun.setData(QScriptValue(engine, uint(0xBABE0000 + i))); proto.setProperty(QString::fromLatin1(qtscript_VidaliaTab_function_names[i+1]),fun);

It does not depend on the "i" index, it crashes for every value.
When I remove the "setProperty" call, it wont crash.
I thought this is related to "fromLatin1" call, but it crashes even for
' proto.setProperty("prop",fun); '
It does not crash if I remove the "fun" argument, so this works ok:

finally, this is the call causing the crash:
engine->newFunction(qtscript_VidaliaTab_prototype_call, qtscript_VidaliaTab_function_lengths[i+1]);

commenting it out makes program work ok.

I don't know QtScript module, I dont think I can solve it without spending few days.

Try upgrading to 4.8.1.

Your fix might work, but you will be losing functionality, since you are no longer providing the actual function.

Either way, I think you should leave it the way it works, and we can continue discussing that bug after this is done.

comment:9 Changed 7 years ago by sebb

sure, i didn't mean to provide a fix, just to identify the source of this bug
i'll try to upgrade to Qt 4.8 and let you know

comment:10 Changed 7 years ago by sebb

Looks like it works fine with Qt 4.8.1. I should be done with remaining tests soon.
