Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
Finally found it. I was skipping the call to DBClientsManager setupWithAppKey! It was in there, but I was mistakenly skipping it when my app had stored the preference that Dropbox was disconnected. It's weird that that produces no error messages. I found the problem by stepping in the debugger into authorizeFromController and noticing that both my sharedApplication and controller arguments were 'nil', even though they were valid values when I passed them. Then I noticed the assert in that function:
NSAssert([DBOAuthManager sharedOAuthManager] != nil, @"Call `Dropbox.setupWithAppKey` or `Dropbox.setupWithTeamAppKey` before calling this method");
As soon as I saw that, I knew what I had done.
I guess that the assert never fired, because [DBOAuthManager sharedOAuthManager] is a valid number even if you have not called setupWithAppKey?
Anyway thanks for helping me with this problem, I really appreciate it. I'll probably run into more but at least this one is down.
Well, I could swear I checked the value of sharedOAuthManager and it was nonzero, but now it shows zero when I do not call setupWithAppKey. However, it doesn't make any difference - even when it is zero, I still don't see any error message. I tried it with DBRoulette and got the same results.
What happens for you when that assert fires? Does that text print out in the console?
I do get an exception thrown with the message:

I tried putting that exception in the main body of DBRoulette, right after the commented out setupWithAppKey line, and it terminated with the same error you got. But it doesn't seem to fire within the SDK library. Probably unrelated, but it also seems weird to me that when I step into that function, my controller and [UIApplication sharedApplication] arguments show up as nil in the debugger.
Hey Greg, here is my DBRoulette project, in case you want to try it out. I'd be curious to know whether the assert fires for you.
