JavaFX Confusing Stacktrace

My JavaFx app throwing an exception and does not point towards a single line of my own code. What does this mean?

It is confusing me because I encountered it a few times now without being able to reproduce. Once at booting, once at being idle (minimized) and returning back to the app, once at being idle (but still shown on screen) and returning back to the app.

The full code is too long, I can post little snippets that operate in the configuration. And some links to the complete app to get an overview what Im trying to make.

Snippet 1 (calculate function of a node that adds an item to the end of a list):

@Override
public void calculate() {

//Get incoming data
Object raw = inPorts.get(0).getData();
Object item = inPorts.get(1).getData();

//Finish calculate if there is no incoming data
if (raw == null) {
return;
}

//Check if all incoming data is in the correct format
boolean hasError = false;
if (!(raw instanceof List)) {
System.out.println("This is not a list");
hasError = true;
}
if (item instanceof List) {
System.out.println("Just one item can be added at a time");
hasError = true;
}
if (inPorts.get(1).connectedConnections.size() > 0
&& inPorts.get(0).connectedConnections.size() > 0) {
Class listDataType = inPorts.get(0).connectedConnections.get(0).getStartPort().dataType;
Class itemDataType = inPorts.get(1).connectedConnections.get(0).getStartPort().dataType;
if (itemDataType.isAssignableFrom(listDataType)) {
System.out.println("Element is not of same type as the list's");
hasError = true;
}
}
if (hasError) {
return;
}

//Add item to end
List source = (List) raw;

//Create a new list when autoCheckBox is checked, otherwise add to existing
//HACK new list is created that is identical because otherwise data is not forwarded
//When isClicked, check changes to empty circle
if (this.autoCheckBox.isClicked()) {
source.add(item);
List target = new ArrayList();
target.addAll(source);

//Set outgoing data
outPorts.get(0).setData(target);

} else {
List target = new ArrayList();
target.addAll(source);
target.add(item);

//Set outgoing data
outPorts.get(0).setData(target);
}

}


Snippet 2 Calculate function of a node that outputs lists to a textfield.

@Override
public void calculate() {
//Get controls and data
TextArea area = (TextArea) controls.get(0);
Object data = inPorts.get(0).getData();
area.setText("");

//Do Action
if (inPorts.get(0).getData() != null && inPorts.get(0).connectedConnections.size() > 0) {
//Set data type corresponding to source
outPorts.get(0).dataType = inPorts.get(0).connectedConnections.get(0).getStartPort().dataType;
outPorts.get(0).setName(inPorts.get(0).connectedConnections.get(0).getStartPort().getName());
if (data instanceof List) {
List list = (List) data;

for (Object object : list) {
if (object == null) {
area.appendText("null");
} else {
area.appendText(object.toString() + "\n");
}
}
} else {
area.setText(data.toString());
}
} else {
//Set data type back to string
outPorts.get(0).dataType = String.class;
outPorts.get(0).setName("String");
if (inPorts.get(0).isActive()) {
area.setText("null");
} else {
area.setText("");
}
}

//Set Data
outPorts.get(0).setData(data);

// System.out.println(outPorts.get(0).dataType);
}

Answer Source

As James_D stated:

These kinds of errors can arise in some circumstances if you try to update UI elements from a background thread.

Every UI changing method is now called from the FX thread by Platform.runLater().
