How can I set CG_CONTEXT_SHOW_BACKTRACE environmental variable?

Posted by: admin November 30, 2017 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have three buttons in my view. After setting the cornerRadus in the viewDidLoad() : button.layer.cornerRadius = 20 I get the following error message in the log:

 <Error>: CGContextSaveGState: invalid context 0x0. 
If you want to see the backtrace, please set 
CG_CONTEXT_SHOW_BACKTRACE environmental variable.

Questions:

  • How can I set CG_CONTEXT_SHOW_BACKTRACE environmental variable?
  • Or how can I fix this warning?

Okay I’ve the backtrace now from the message. It doesn’t make any sense to me. Some help please…

You can set an environmental variable via this menu: Product -> Scheme -> Edit Scheme. Under the “Run” item, locate the “Arguments” tab, you’ll see “Environmental Variables” in the tab, Add CG_CONTEXT_SHOW_BACKTRACE and set its value to YES.

This problem happen with Xcode 7. In my case i removed the UIViewControllerBasedStatusBarAppearance from Info.plist and the problem solved! See the answer in this post:

On Xcode 7:

In case you still want the status bar is hidden, just change UIViewControllerBasedStatusBarAppearance in the Info.plist file into View controller-based status bar appearance. Don’t forget to set it by NO
