Sporadic Exception thrown from TreeNavigator


We've been experiencing our application freezing after generating an UnhandledError exception when run on a tablet.  I managed to finally reproduce it today with additional logging and it appears to be coming from the TreeNavigator control.  The exception never occurs on my laptop, but is quite common on the tablet.  I believe the code is ok since the sequence "click hamburger menu, click radio button, load navigator" works fine most of the time.    I clicked the same sequence many times and it worked fine several times, but I installed a tool called MouseRecorder so that I can record a sequence and replay it many times.  That is how I am finally able to reproduce the issue.

Do you have any ideas what could cause this?  I will work on adding additional logging, but it appears that the method to load the control ran without any error and the data is the same each call.

Unhandled Exception: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.:System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80004005): Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

Hi Deanna,

We have checked the reported issue by creating a sample. In this sample, we have used SfTreeNavigator, Radio Button and also installed MouseRecorder software as you mentioned in your update. But the reported issue was not reproduced. Please download the video from the below link.

Yes, it is difficult to reproduce, but I notice that you have had several issues in the forum that are similar, but most can not be reproduced.  It seems that many things can trigger the COMException (0x800004005), but it's very confusing that the error message means "access denied".  I can't imagine how the binding could fail with that kind of error.

Could you search your archives to see if anyone else has reported this and see if you can give me any clues?   If not, go ahead and close the issue.  I will work on reproducing the problem.

Hi Deanna,

We have not faced the reported issue in the past and still we were unable to reproduce it. Could you please provide the codes you have used for Hamburger Menu and all other items in your application? Also please let us know the current version which you are using. It will help to proceed further.

We would like to follow up on this until the issue is completely resolved at your end.
