How do I avoid crash on PDFPage(image: image) with reason EXC_BAD_ACCESS (KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS) on iOS 16+


Same code is working fine on below iOS 16, but crash was observed on higher versions.

Line of Code :

if let errorView = getErrorImageView(),
            let page = PDFPage(image: errorView) { // <- Crash Observed on this line.
            page.addAnnotation(getTitlePDFAnnotation())
            let count = pdfDocument?.pageCount ?? 0
            pdfDocument?.insert(page, at: count)
        }


fun getErrorImageView() -> UIImage? {
let errorView = UIView()
        errorView.bounds = view.bounds
        errorView.backgroundColor = .athenaWhite
        let errorTitleLabel = UILabel()
        errorTitleLabel.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
        errorTitleLabel.text = "Error"
        errorTitleLabel.textAlignment = .center
        errorView.addSubview(errorTitleLabel)
        // .... added constraint to view
let renderer = UIGraphicsImageRenderer(size: view.bounds.size)
        let image = renderer.image { _ in
            errorView.drawHierarchy(in: errorView.bounds, afterScreenUpdates: true)
        }
        return image
}

  • Tried same code on different project, and it's working fine, but it's crashing on client project.
  • Image is not nil
  • Tried with image from xcasset
  • Tried with removing alpha
  • Tried with enabling zombie object

Solution

  • Update your getErrorImageView() method with below code

    fun getErrorImageView() -> UIImage? {
        let errorView = UIView()
        errorView.bounds = view.bounds
        errorView.backgroundColor = .white
        let errorTitleLabel = UILabel()
        errorTitleLabel.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
        errorTitleLabel.text = "Error"
        errorTitleLabel.textAlignment = .center
        errorView.addSubview(errorTitleLabel)
        // .... added constraint to view
        // Create a UIGraphicsImageRendererFormat and set its opaque as true
        let rendererFormat = UIGraphicsImageRendererFormat.default()
        rendererFormat.opaque = true
        // Now pass this rendererFormat to UIGraphicsImageRenderer
        let renderer = UIGraphicsImageRenderer(size: view.bounds.size, format: rendererFormat)
        let image = renderer.image { _ in
            errorView.drawHierarchy(in: errorView.bounds, afterScreenUpdates: true)
        }
        return image
    }
    

    Since your crash log suggests on creating PDFPage it checks for is_image_alpha_opaque or not. And this provided image is not opaque it will crash. Here since UIGraphicsImageRenderer now takes UIGraphicsImageRendererFormat as input parameter. We can utilise it's ability to for drawHierarchy where we have set its opaque property to true and doesn't updated any alpha.

    I hope this will avoid the crash. Happy Coding ✌️
