@mrsndmn mrsndmn commented Jun 16, 2020

Following code

var Result = ResultType("application/vnd.goa.error", func() {
    Attribute("error", String, func() {
        Meta("struct:field:name", "ErrorCode")

Generated code:

type GoaError struct {
    ErrorCode string

// Error returns an error description.
func (e *GoaError) Error() string {
    return ""

// ErrorName returns "GoaError".
func (e *GoaError) ErrorName() string {
    return e.Error

This code won't be compiled:

cannot use e.Error (type func() string) as type string in return argument

See full example of DSL and generated code in tests below.

Good catch! thank you. Can you please back-port to the v2 branch as well? (simply cherry-pick the merge commit).
