Version 2.1 Issues

Aug 23, 2009 at 5:39 AM

A variety of things I'm seeing in 2.1 that I can't find documentation on:

1) App key and secret must now be in the web.config? Where was that change announced? Why? Do I also need to list the other values found in the sample app?

<add key="Callback" value=""/>
    <add key="Suffix" value="IFrameCanvasSample"/>
    <add key="TemplateID1" value="20889707566"/>
    <add key="TemplateID2" value="20889902566"/>


2) In the CanvasIFrameMasterPage, I'm 99% sure you introduced a bug (with a completely unnecessary code change, no less). You removed the Page_Init and replaced it with:

protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
            BasePageHelper.LoadIFramePage(api, _useSession, _autoAdd, Request, Response, UseSession ? Session : null);

Fair enough, but the Base.OnInit call should come AFTER the LoadIFramePage call. Without that it breaks any calls to the API from Page_Init in my master page.


As others have noted, if you're going to make changes, at least document them. I just wasted my entire evening trying to upgrade to 2.1 to get around a bug in 2.0 only to find that 2.1 had more breaking bugs than 2.0. Very frustrating.
