Passing a multi-element array to Image causes a crash on Android

This issue has been tracked since 2022-09-16.


Hey RN maintainers,

I've made a repo with this one, which I hope is reproducible. The crash happens at least on Android Emulator, but we've also reproduced it on a Pixel 5. The repo was created with expo, but I'm not sure if that makes much of a difference.

The error message is Error while updating property 'src' of a view managed by: RCTImageView.

I've also posted this question on StackOverflow, as it might be a mistake on my end instead of an actual bug.

Steps to reproduce

Does it work when you add width and height to each source object in the array?

@danilobuerger Yes, that makes the problem go away. With these network images I can't be sure what width/heights I'll be getting, as they are assets uploaded by the team; that would make it impossible to know the width/height beforehand.

The error message could be better, but the docs are clear:

This prop can also contain several remote URLs, specified together with their width and height and potentially with scale/other URI arguments.

Damn, I missed that. Do you know why it doesn't break on iOS?

danilobuerger wrote this answer on 2022-09-20

No, but you could investigate it. Maybe there is a way to not require it at all on both platforms.

Interestingly this is recent, since we upgraded to RN 0.69.5. Android didn't crash in our last build.

@danilobuerger Yeah, fair enough. Thanks for your help!

Can we consider this resolved?

I'd argue the behavior is sub-optimal and a ‘regression’. But by all means, go ahead and close it, as it is technically the expected result.
