Cannot read properties of null (reading 'editor')

This issue has been tracked since 2021-12-03.

I've got component which conditionally loads on the page. OnLoad method has following code:

  const onLoad = () => {
    if (props.model) {

    emailEditorRef.current.editor.addEventListener('design:updated', (e: any) => {
      emailEditorRef.current.editor.exportHtml((data: HtmlExport) => {
          html: data.html,

When component loads first time it works correctly. On second time I've got an exception: Cannot read properties of null (reading 'editor') in line emailEditorRef.current.editor.addEventListener. I've fixed it by wrapping onLoad in setTimeout.

Can you help with correct solution?

Could be wrong, but I think this is happening because loadDesign is getting called before editor has been fully rendered.

To avoid this race condition, I think you can use the onReady() prop instead.

In fact, I see now that onLoad() was marked as deprecated in 1d03c2e (presumably in favor of onReady()).

Should we go ahead and update the examples?

onReady instead of onLoad should fix your problem
