      Hi, I'm creating an Android and iOS module for Titanium which has a sendLog method which sends some arbitrary JSON data to a server and returns an URL if it matches some predefined filters. The URL should be opened in a modal Dialog with a webview.

      I've written native iOS and Android libraries and wrapped them as Titanium modules. On iOS everything works fine but on Android I can't open the Dialog (see error stack trace below). Right now there's one log message that always triggers the same webpage for testing purposes. On Android it just fails silently.

      Test case


      var mupets = require("be.iminds.mupets");
      mupets.initialize("wappr", "http://tocker.iminds.be:3000/log/report.json", 1, 100, 3);
      var esmLog = { 
      	bar: "foo"

      After this piece of code (after about 10 seconds max), the module should show a native dialog with the following webpage inside: http://tocker.iminds.be:3000/es/sheets/test-01/index.html

      Instead, this is the error I get consistently:

      Here is the Android code that's causing the error:

      Android code

      Activity activity = (Activity) context;
                      EsmDialogFragment esmDialogFragment = EsmDialogFragment.newInstance(new EsmDialogListener() {
                          public void submit(String type, JsonObject result) {
                              Mupets.sendLog(type, result);
                              esmShown = false;
                          public void onCancel(JsonObject cancelled) {
                              Mupets.sendLog("ESM_cancelled", cancelled);
                              esmShown = false;
                      }, url, true);
                      FragmentTransaction transaction = activity.getFragmentManager().beginTransaction();
                      Fragment prev = activity.getFragmentManager().findFragmentByTag(EsmDialogFragment.ESM_DIALOG_FRAGMENT);
                      if (prev != null) {
                      Log.v(TAG, "Pre-show fragment");
                      esmDialogFragment.show(transaction, EsmDialogFragment.ESM_DIALOG_FRAGMENT);
                      Log.v(TAG, "Post-show fragment");

      Does Titanium either not allow the use of Fragments/or require you to call Dialog.show() at a specific point? The error talks about "...after onSaveInstanceState" but I don't see how I would call it before onSaveInstanceState if I'm not creating an activity and why the code works when I use it in a native Android app. I added the Android module and iOS module I use to this ticket.
