Search on Contacts ‘id’ field with JavaScript number type crashes in iOS




      I was trying to retrieve a specific contact by id in my Ionic/Cordova app, so used the following code:

      return Contacts.find(
      	{filter: contactId, multiple: true})

      However, this crashes the iOS app at runtime with:

      Seems to only fail when contactId is a JavaScript number. Converting it to a string before searching (contactId+"") works fine.

      Fault originally occurred because Contact id field in iOS is an integer… and it looks like I’m getting a JavaScript number value out of the Contacts API. Was storing this integer in SQLite (which preserves the data type), getting an integer back out, and passing it back into the Contacts.find() API.


      • Contacts id field is supposed to return a string, so it should return a string on iOS
      • Contacts.find() should coerce its arguments to correct types before calling native code.
