[V2.0.18.8] Possible bug - "OnDisable" is not called for Applications

businessdadbusinessdad Stealth contributor MVP

I'm developing an application built on Garden/Vanilla and I noticed that, when it's disabled, the OnDisable hook is not invoked. I tried putting a brutal die() statement in it, logging its execution, printing a message, but it really seems that it's skipped.

I looked through the core files and, while I could see a call for ThemeHooks::OnDisable and Plugin::OnDisable(), I could not find a call to Application::OnDisable().

The severity of such bug depends on the application itself. The one I'm working on, for example, creates some routes that would fail if the application is disabled and, therefore, should be removed in the OnDisable handler. If an application doesn't actually need to do anything in that phase, then there would be no impact.

    The only reference to this being 'a thing' in is in the Skeleton application hooks file. None of the actual applications (dashboard, vanilla, and conversations) have it declared. This may be the case of copying the plugin skeleton comments over to the application hooks file and not switching everything over to an application context.

    Either way, this functionality does not exist in 2.1b2 either. There is a workaround available for 2.2+ since you could hook into the ApplicationManager_AddonDisabled_Handler event with a separate plugin.

    Because I didn't think about it. I'll do it now. :)
