U4-4428 - Upload field on members fails on resizing

Created by Sebastiaan Janssen 13 Mar 2014, 17:10:06 Updated by Shannon Deminick 17 Mar 2014, 07:38:47

In Umbraco.Core.IO.UmbracoMediaFile the call to DoResize was changed from: DoResize(GetDimensions().Width, GetDimensions().Height, maxWidthHeight, fileNameAddition); To: DoResize(-1, -1, maxWidthHeight, fileNameAddition);

Which makes trying to set a file to the upload field fail completely with the error below. @Per.Ploug it's been changed in your commit e825c089015f7c37e88173231df32665515e5867 but the commit is so incredibly huge that I can't figure out why this was done. Can we revert this?

@sebastiaan the -1, -1 was in this commit, not the one you've referenced:


And the reason is because that particular call is inside the method:

public string Resize(int maxWidthHeight, string fileNameAddition)

Which does not set specific dimensions, thus -1 is a default (ignored case). Specifying anything but -1, will now ignore the maxWidthHeight so you 'fix' in rev: f6267381742e31c494d6b26e539d9260198e856f is incorrect.

I'll need to review this error and what you've changed.

The -1, -1 must remain there otherwise the image resizing will not work properly for any thumbnails.

In the above stack trace, here is what is happening:

  • FileHandlerData.Value = somepostfileobject;
  • That calls into: UmbracoMediaFile.Resize(Int32 maxWidthHeight, String fileNameAddition) which specifies ONLY a maxWidthHeight
  • That calls into: UmbracoMediaFile.DoResize(Int32 width, Int32 height, Int32 maxWidthHeight, String fileNameAddition) which is a generic private method which checks if the width is -1, if it is it will then use the maxWidthHeight to determine the thumbnail size whilst maintaining an aspect ratio
  • That then calls: ImageHelper.GenerateThumbnail(Image image, Int32 maxWidthHeight, Int32 fixedWidth, Int32 fixedHeight, String thumbnailFileName, String extension, IFileSystem fs) which as you can see is only getting a maxWidthHeight value passed in.

Somewhere in there is your problem, it is not the -1, -1 which must remain. I realize there's cleaner ways to do this but the method is private for a reason, we would expect people to pass in -1, -1 as parameters and I didn't feel like making overloaded methods for this at the time.

If you can please step into this code or give me the code to replicate that'd be appreciate.

I think that the problem then is this bit of code:

var thumbnail = maxWidthHeight == -1 ? ImageHelper.GenerateThumbnail(image, maxWidthHeight, fileNameThumb, Extension, _fs) : ImageHelper.GenerateThumbnail(image, width, height, fileNameThumb, Extension, _fs);

If maxWidthHeight is -1 then use that value to resize, great idea! So this if needs to be inverted. Agreed?
