    Unable to retrieve app artifact context?


      I made a simple app, whose javascript is:

      gadgets.util.registerOnLoadHandler(function() {
      function getContext(){
        //gadgets.ee.registerContextListener(function(context) {
          var context = opensocial.data.getDataContext().getDataSet(key);
      function testfunc(){
              data: {  
                  display: {  
                      type: "image",  
                      previewImage: "images/icon48.png", 
                      label: "Testing!"
                  target: {  
                      type: "embed",  
                      view: "embedded",
                      context: {
                          test:"hi there"


      where the HTML simply consists of a button that calls testfunc()


      the problem is that this (and attempting to use gadgets.ee.registerContextListener) prints nothing when opening the context through the app artifact

      no output, not even printing null


      is there something I am missing?

          What does your Javascript Console say?  If it doesn't even print null, sounds like it is a runtime error and the script is probably stopping?  Dont have the script handy to compare the rest of the code, but perhaps you can share your error output and we can start there?

              Object {display: Object, target: Object}


              There is no error output, the only output is the object output that creating the app artifact returns and deprecation warnings from jive scripts.

              These are all expected outputs.

              Note, the object that is outputted DOES contain the context in the correct location (target.context).

                ignore my deleted comment, unrelated issue. This does not work on the public sandbox either.
