raiseCustomEventWithCode disconnects peer

Hello friends!

I am trying to execute custom event with code from my as3 app:
var data:Dictionary = new Dictionary();
data["message"] = clip.inpuptLine.inputLabel.text + "";
Stats.main.getPhotonInstance().raiseCustomEventWithCode(32, data);

As you could see this is pretty much like your chat demo code. But this code leads to disconnect from the server with such error:
2015-01-05 01:57:31,555 [14] DEBUG Lite.Room [(null)] - Executing operation Join

Would you kindy suggest me how could we fix such issue?

Thank you!

Best regards,


  • Hi,

    Use plain object instead of Dictionary
    var data:Object = {};
    data["message"] = ...
  • Thanks!
    With plain object it works like a charm.

    And just one additional question:
    To parse required data I use:

    But, when I parse operations from the server I could directly access to data[1]. or whatever byte I configure on the server.
    So why riseCustomEvent doesn't work in the same way ([245] required)?

    Thank you!

    Best regards,
  • Please clarify where do you use [245] to parse data.
    When custom event received, LoadBalancingClient.onEvent() called with content already extracted from message.
  • Yes, sure!
    Now it is something like this:
    switch (eventCode)
    				case 123:
    					if (data[245][1] != null)
    						chat.text += data[245][1];

    But if I send any operation with data from the server, I could use:
    case 124:
    					if (data[1] != null)
    						chat.text += data[1];
  • The code still does not show where it happen (which methods).
    I guess the difference is between custom event sent from client with payload in [245] and server's custom message with data in [1]. If so, they are different messages and not necessary should be parsed same way.
