AGSFindTask delegate not firing

Hi
I have already done 2 implementations of AGSFindTask.
The delegate fires as expected.

On a third one, both in the existing viewController, and if I move it to its own viewController, the delegate will not fire.

In the header file, I've specified the delegate


#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
#import "ArcGIS.h"


@interface TelemetryViewController : UIViewController  <UITableViewDelegate, UIPopoverControllerDelegate, AGSFindTaskDelegate>{
   
    UIPopoverController* _popOverController;
    UITableView *_tableView;

    AGSFindTask *_findTask;
    AGSFindParameters *_findParams;
   
}

@property (nonatomic,retain) UIPopoverController* popOverController;
@property (nonatomic, retain) IBOutlet UITableView *tableView;

@property (nonatomic, retain) AGSFindTask *findTask;
@property (nonatomic, retain) AGSFindParameters *findParams;

@end


----
In my function, I set up the query with hard-coded variables that I know work through testing the query in REST, and I've set the delegate to equal self.  But, the delegate :
-(void)findTask:(AGSFindTask *)findTask operation:(NSOperation *)op didExecuteWithFindResults:(NSArray *)results {


never fires!

----


//create find task and set the delegate
    self.findTask2 = [[AGSFindTask alloc] initWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:self.baseLayerURL]];

    self.findTask.delegate = self;
  
    //create find task parameters
    self.findParams = [[AGSFindParameters alloc]init];
   
    //set find task parameters
    self.findParams.contains = NO;
    self.findParams.layerIds = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:[NSNumber numberWithInt:1],nil];
    self.findParams.outSpatialReference = self.mapView.spatialReference;
    self.findParams.returnGeometry = TRUE;
    self.findParams.searchFields = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"FTPID",nil];
  
   
    self.findParams.searchText = @"WTK001";
   
    //execute find task
    [self.findTask executeWithParameters:self.findParams];

--------
Has anyone else experienced this or have any idea what could be causing this?
I've checked the other forum posts on the idea and I've made sure I have the delegate in the header file and the delegate set to self in the implementation file.

Thanks

You are initializing self.findTask2, setting delegate for self.findTask and executing self.findTask. So self.findTask is never initialized?

Typo when I copied it over. It really is self.findTask not self.findTask2
Problem still exists. (!)
I corrected the code below.



//create find task and set the delegate
self.findTask = [[AGSFindTask alloc] initWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:self.baseLayerURL]];

self.findTask.delegate = self;

//create find task parameters
self.findParams = [[AGSFindParameters alloc]init];

//set find task parameters
self.findParams.contains = NO;
self.findParams.layerIds = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:[NSNumber numberWithInt:1],nil];
self.findParams.outSpatialReference = self.mapView.spatialReference;
self.findParams.returnGeometry = TRUE;
self.findParams.searchFields = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"FTPID",nil];


self.findParams.searchText = @"WTK001";

//execute find task
[self.findTask executeWithParameters:self.findParams];

The class from where you are executing the find task and the class where you adopted a AGSFindTaskDelegate are same?

If possible, attach a sample application to test.

Yes, Nimesh, that is true.

I discovered something playing around....

If I execute the findTask from within

- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView accessoryButtonTappedForRowWithIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
{
}

the app delegate fires

If I try to execute it from within a custom function it does not.

- (void) runTelemQuery {
}

Is there some sort of dependency to running an AGSFindTask from a UITableView ? or other?

Could you please post a sample app here, I would like to test.

Turns out, I was trying to run the AGSFindTask delegate from a different thread while in NSParserQueue.
I had to force the function to run on the main thread.
