Stale Component Reference (boatwidget)

  • Version: PC/MAC/Linux Fixed

Rebuilding the inventory bar (example, equipping a backpack) after exiting a boat prints a Stale Component Reference.

Because OpenBoat of screens/playerhud does

self.controls.inv.boatwidget = self.controls.inv.root:AddChild(ContainerWidget(self.owner))

which is then closed when exiting a boat, but not detached from inventorybar class.

So, when doing this in Rebuild of widgets/inventorybar

if self.boatwidget then
	self.boatwidget:SetPosition(Vector3(700, do_integrated_backpack and 105 or 65, 0))

the widget isn't actually valid, but the reference exists, and so, SetPosition is called.



	if self.boatwidget then
		if self.boatwidget.inst:IsValid() then
			self.boatwidget:SetPosition(Vector3(700, do_integrated_backpack and 105 or 65, 0))
			self.boatwidget = nil

stops the error and cleans the reference.


The clean way would be to make a CloseBoat method in the HUD and plug it into the Close of the container component, like how Open from container works with OpenBoat.

Steps to Reproduce
1) Spawn a row boat 2) Enter it 3) Exit it 4) Spawn backpack 5) Equip backpack 6) Check log
