Error while trying to run Corona SDK Sample

0 votes

I'm having this error when I run the "App42_CloudAPI_Corona_Sample-master" example. Semms like I'm missing something relate to the Storyboard Module. Any ideas why?

Module 'storyboard' not found:
no field package.preload['storyboard']
no file '/Users/Leonardo/Library/Application Support/Corona/Simulator/Plugins/storyboard.lua'
no file '/Users/Leonardo/Desktop/App42_CloudAPI_Corona_Sample-master/sample/App42-LeaderBoard-Sample/storyboard.lua'
no file '/Applications/CoronaSDK/Corona'
no file '/Users/Leonardo/Library/Application Support/Corona/Simulator/Plugins/storyboard.dylib'
no file './storyboard.dylib'
no file '/Applications/CoronaSDK/Corona'
File: module 'storyboard' not found

stack traceback:

[C]: in function 'require'

?: in function <?:803>

(tail call): ?

main.lua:16: in main chunk

Hi Miguel,

It seems like the storyboard.lua file is unavailable in latest version of corona and the sample is made using storyboard, hence it is unable to find the same.

Please download storyboard.lua file and put it in the project folder and try.

Let me know if the problem continues.

I've downloaded the file. Now the app runs but I have some null exception as I try to create a user:

Attempt to concatenate upvalue 'emailTextField' (a nil value)

File: login.lua
Line: 85
stack traceback:
    login.lua:85: in function 'onException'
    App42-Lua-API/Util.lua:37: in function 'throwExceptionIfNullOrBlank'
    App42-Lua-API/UserService.lua:31: in function 'createUser'
    login.lua:146: in function '_onEvent'
    ?: in function '?'
    ?: in function <?:1381>
    ?: in function <?:169>
I tried some email variations but even if the field is blank I have this problem. Strange, as the code has some lines to deal with that case.
Could you please share the inout values which you are using for creating user? It will help me to identify the problem.
I've tried some fake data, as

user: monkeytestplayer

and even real data as my main mail address.

The problem is the same even with blank field. Instead of a warning of blank space as I've seen in the code line, I get this Null Exception.

Hi Miguel,

Have you passed the direct value in createUser function at line no: 146 in login.lua file ( and let me know if you are able to create the user.
