Error description

  • Several currentItem binding-related issues can occur in a Coach
    when a Coach View binds to a currentItem of a variable of List.
    The symptoms can occur under various conditions when currentItem
    is bound to Coach View. For example:
    
    -- nested coach views that bind to currentItem might not sync up
    their states correctly even though they bind to the same boolean
    type option binding inside a   repeating section.
    
    -- binding for a Coach View that binds to a currentItem inside a
    repeating section is not updated after deletion of an item in a
    List.
    
    -- a stale currentItem binding can exist when a binding variable
    (List of BO type) gets replaced. As a result, calling
    this.context.binding.get("value") could return the value that
    existed prior to the replacement value.
    
    -- some Coach Views might not get the currentItem binding value
    (property in a complex BO type) in repeating sections correctly
    after the items are added to the List. This can be accompanied
    by a JavaScript error "TypeError: previousNode is null" in the
    browser console.
    
    -- A Coach View (which binds to currentItem) and binding data
    might get out of sync after a binding variable (List type) has
    multiple add item, delete item, and complete replacement
    operations.
