Destroy/Create Objects: Family membership is wrong

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Post » Thu May 15, 2014 4:19 pm

Problem Description
Immedeatly after destroying an object, which is part of the family, that family is not being "updated". I have similar issues on creating objects by Func´s. The uploaded example contains only the destroying issue.

Attach a Capx
see uploaded file

Description of Capx
On touch (end): 2 sprites get destroyed and created, inbetween debug messages show the familiy.Count, which is partly wrong during the process.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Touch/Klick anywhere
  • See debug message, especially: ("Family.Count = 2" -> "sprite 1 and 2 destroyed" -> "Family.Count = 2")
  • Enable "Wait 1.0s"
  • See debug message, especially: ("Family.Count = 2" -> "sprite 1 and 2 destroyed" -> "Family.Count = 0")

Observed Result
Family membership is not being updated immedeatly after creating/destroying objects? Or between Func calls?

Expected Result
see step 3-4 (with Wait 1.0)

Closing as won't fix: due to the way the event engine works, objects are not really actually created or destroyed until the end of the next top level event or trigger. In this case since everything happens in one event, the destroyed objects will not actually be removed until after everything else has already run.
