Presence.as possible bug

My xiff application was getting following error when a sip-communicator client changed presence .

TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.

I had to add a following line to get status() function in the Presence.as file to fix the issue.

if (myStatusNode.firstChild == null) return null;

This is the updated get status function.

public function get status():String


if (myStatusNode == null) return null;

if (myStatusNode.firstChild == null) return null;

return myStatusNode.firstChild.nodeValue;


And this is XML that I was getting from the sip-communicator

<presence id=“123” to=“test@test/xiff” from=“test1@test/sip-comm”>

<status />




I hope this line would be added on next release.

Thank you
