iOS Question

App crashes using Facebook Login SDK when I go to the home screen

I originally downloaded the FBSDK's version 4.10 and integrated them into my application by placing them in the frameworks folder. Realizing that these would not get updated over time, I removed them completely and tried to add them as pods to my project. The pods installed successfully, I have imported them correctly in my bridging header file, and there were no other issues. The pods update installed version 4.11 which has caused me some headache.

I am using the FBSDKLoginKit to log a user into their account and retrieve information from that. I am able to get back a dictionary with the users information just fine. I then pass this information to the next ViewController with a segue. At any point after this, if I press the home button on my iPhone or simulator, the app will crash. The error I get is

*** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException',
reason: '*** -[__NSPlaceholderDictionary initWithObjects:forKeys:count:]:
attempt to insert nil object from objects[3]'

This exception also occurs if I let the user log in through facebook, segue to the new view controller, unwind to the previous view controller, and then attempt to log in again. I have attempted to log the user out once retrieving their pertinent information on the second screen, but the error still persists.

I have seen a similar question asked where the "solution" was that the FBSDKLoginKit writes the retrieved dictionary to a variable and if the dictionary it has retrieved back has nil values, it throws this error.

Is there anything I can do to catch this before it happens? Has anyone found a work around?

Here is my output from the simulator when I press home:

libc++abi.dylib: terminating with uncaught exception of type NSException

Running my code step by step I find that the error occurs during the method:

fbLoginManager.logInWithReadPermissions(permissionsNeeded, fromViewController: self) { (result, error) -> Void in
//crashes before it enters this block
//my code here

It crashes before I can even check the error value. I will attempt to check the values by stepping into the fbsdk methods and update

fbsdk browser permissions login

As soon as I press OK on this screen for the second time it crashes. How can I debug this? The action isn't in my app, its in the browser so I'm not sure where to go from here..


I have came across this issues recently, and i solved it by adding this piece of code in Appdelegate.m.

- (void)applicationDidBecomeActive:(UIApplication *)application {    

    [FBSDKAppEvents activateApp];
