[Bug report] Using an empty string ("") as dateInvalidCaption prevents data from loading

Answered
Projet TCD asked on July 1, 2020
  • Observed behavior:
    • Pivot table is not loading
    • Browser console contains an error log:
      • Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘toString’ of undefined
  • Expected behavior:
    • Pivot table is loading correctly with empty string (“”) as a localized “dateInvalidCaption”
    • Browser console doesn’t contain any error
  • More details:
    • Following the forum post https://www.flexmonster.com/question/empty-date-field-shown-as-invalid-date/ the “dateInvalidCaption” is set to “” (also happens with a string that only contains whitespaces) in the “localization” property
      • As a result, empty, “null” or invalid dates are not parsed properly
    • This bug is not occuring in Flexmonster version v2.7.11 (untested on newer versions except v2.8.10)
    • Relatively low priority bug, but it did cause quite a headache to diagnose. Obvious workaround is to set “dateInvalidCaption” to a non-empty/non-whitespace value
