Cancelling quit - onApplicationQuit

Postby kokosnoot » Mon Sep 25, 2017 12:46 pm


In my application I am cancelling Unity's quit (eg. after Alt-F4) in order to display a quit confirmation. This will generate a lot of errors in the build exe version:

Code: Select all
NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

UnityEngine.DebugLogHandler:LogException(Exception, Object)
UnityEngine.Logger:LogException(Exception, Object)
TouchScript.Utils.EventHandlerExtensions:InvokeHandleExceptions(EventHandler`1, Object, PointerEventArgs)

I have already found out the reason: It is because there are a couple of OnApplicationQuits() in the TouchManager code which set "shuttingDown = true", while the application still has the opportunity to cancel (Application.CancelQuit()).

As a test I have removed these (there are four of them) and rebuild the project. Now the "cancel quit" button seems to work when Alt-F4 is pressed. I do not have any crashes without the shuttingDown = true removed. shuttingDown is a private variable, so it can also not be set from outside.

So I am not sure what the best solution is :). But I thought I would be good to let you know about this issue.

Indeed, I haven't thought about this.
shuttingDown variable was needed not to recreate all the state when the app is destroying but some code is trying to do something with TouchManager.Instance.
I'll check if this is still needed.
