my dropbox chooser stopped working

my dropbox chooser stopped working

My Dropbox chooser no longer works in my android app and nothing has changed. I was retesting it recently and it returns the error saying "Sorry and error occurred. Please try again later."

below I have pasted relevant code that has been working for around a year and also a printout from the error log having to do with GetLinkAsyncTask.

Any Idea why this stopped working?

 

private static final String APP_KEY = "21fxa7qsjb9xpt6"; //app key for dropbox
private static final int DBX_CHOOSER_REQUEST = 256; // arbitrarily choosing 256
private DbxChooser mChooser;
 
public void btnDropbox_Clicked(View v)
{
vibratePhone(50);
DbxChooser.ResultType resultType;
resultType = DbxChooser.ResultType.PREVIEW_LINK;
DebugLog.debugLog("launching Dropbox Chooser ", false);
GlobalStuff.outToChooser = true;
mChooser.forResultType(resultType).launch(this, DBX_CHOOSER_REQUEST);

}
public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data)
{
if (requestCode == DBX_CHOOSER_REQUEST )
{
DebugLog.debugLog("It was for dropbox", false); 
GlobalStuff.outToChooser = false;
if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK)
{
DbxChooser.Result result = new DbxChooser.Result(data);
DebugLog.debugLog("Link to selected file: " + result.getLink(), false); 
@SuppressWarnings("deprecation")
android.text.ClipboardManager clipboard = (android.text.ClipboardManager) 
GlobalStuff.GCT.getSystemService(GlobalStuff.GCT.CLIPBOARD_SERVICE);
Uri uri = result.getLink();
String str = uri.toString();
clipboard.setText(str); 
}
else
{
//failed or was cancelled by user
} 
}
//for some poorly documented reason we need to call mHelper.handleActivityResult
//to get our mPurchaseFinishedListener to execute so that we can consume purchases
//and provision product . . .

if (requestCode == RC_REQUEST)
{
DebugLog.debugLog("It was for in-app billing", false); 
if (mHelper == null) 
{
DebugLog.debugLog("mHellper was null ", false); 
return;
}
if (mHelper.handleActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data))
{
DebugLog.debugLog("Got positive back from handleActivityResult call", false); 
}
} 
}


log error is as follows:

Thanks for the report! Is this only occurring for you when you select files in the Public folder? If so, that's a known issue we're working on.

The issue with choosing files in the Public folder should be fixed now. Please let us know if you're still seeing any issues.
