AV Foundation: Code 39 Recognition Confusion

This is a bug report for AV Foundation. I noticed this problem when creating nice vector versions of the 1D barcodes used in figures in my book. The problem with this is that if you are scanning Code39 barcodes you have no way to determine whether it was one with or without check digit.

It’s filed as rdar://18566595 and on Open Radar.

Update Oct 17th: Added Apple’s response “behaves as intended” with a very good explanation given.

Radar: Spotlight doesn’t find files if first criteria is file format

While working on my talks for Mobiconf next week, I was looking for a specific file. There I got stumped because Finder wouldn’t show me any files matching my search criteria. Oh well, another day another bug report. This one is nice because I could easily demonstrate it with a screencast.

Calendar: Fails to update events from mail update

The CEO of the startup I am part in insists on working on a PC and scheduling our weekly jour fixe with Microsoft Exchange. I knew something was amiss because whenever he changed the time of a meeting I wasn’t able to get my Calendar entry to move.

Being a good engineer I researched the root cause and filed a bug report as rdar://18438463 and on Open Radar.

Radar: Xcode fails to update inline help from documentation comments

When researching documentation comments for a talk I’ll be giving at a conference I got stumped by this issue with Xcode 6.0.1. When I created a fresh project the documentation popup would be instantly updated, but when changing documentation in my larger projects (e.g. DTFoundation or DTCoreText) the updated would never happen.

Radar: Ranging of iBeacons might fail if beacon is emitted on same device

This problem was encountered by me while research for chapter 7 of my book. Apparently other developers have encountered it as well as you can see from several questions on Stack Overflow:

So I am filing this as a dupe hoping for it to be fixed in iOS 8. Or if not, that it will become more visible to Apple.

Radar: Monitoring CLRegion immediately after removing one fails

This gotcha became apparent to me while putting together the sample app for the seventh and last chapter of my book. There I am monitoring for the 10 regions from a plist which are closest to the user. I was removing all monitored regions and re-added the 10 I am interested in. To update the state I called the requestStateForRegion: but didn’t get a state update. Instead the monitoring failed with error code 5. Fortunately a workaround is possible.

Radar: Search Bar jumps around and disappears

iOS 8 might be around the corner and things like this are probably fixed. Still, that does not mean you shouldn’t file your grievences. On this Radar Apple is getting two bug reports for the price of one.
