callback is fired but info object undefined

mscdex commented May 25, 2011

Hmm, it works for me. Are you sure you're looking at the second argument to the callback and not the first? The callbacks follow the node-style of callbacks with error first and other variables afterwards.

I did just now notice though (pretty terrible) that there is no end()/disconnect() method. I'll be adding that shortly.


oops, that is my fault, I tried to dump first argument. Now I receive the data, but there is no useable information. 'Profile' record is also very strange.

\nif any of those features don\'t work, tell paul (Z3Penguin). thanks.' }

Is this for AIM or ICQ?


icq, connecting to

mscdex commented May 26, 2011

Hmm... I'm not able to reproduce this one so far. Is the user on your list and/or have you authorized them?

Is this a personal ICQ number or a public (bot) number? I ask because they don't appear to be logged in at the moment.

On a slightly related note, I've just pushed changes that catches errors for requests on the Location service, which includes getInfo() requests. So if a user isn't online or some other similar error occurs, that error should now be correctly passed back to the callback.


I used my personal number. I'll try it again.
