I get the following error when I have set a view display to only permit access to role A and I visit the display as a user who is not in role A.

PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function access() on a non-object in sites/all/modules/views/includes/view.inc on line 229

I have the Content Access module installed, but I disabled it to confirm that it isn't the cause of the problem.

Can you export your view please?

Sorry about that. Here it is.

Any ideas? Thanks!!

A gentle bump. :-)

I am confused. That view does not contain any access control.

Hm. Ok, after dereine points it out I see it, even though firefox refused to find it earlier. Ignore #5.

Hmm. I made a view similar to this and I can't replicate the problem.

It looks like the error is in view::choose_display(). Can you put some debug around the line that is failing and see what the $displays variable is set to?

Status:Active» Postponed (maintainer needs more info)

Marking nmi -- need some debugging from source to determine what's going on here.

I am getting this same error in Views 6.x-2.11 (different line number)

I looked at the view.inc file and added some debugging. Here is the relevant code:

  function choose_display($displays) {
    if (!is_array($displays)) {
      return $displays;
    }
    $this->init_display();
    foreach ($displays as $display_id) {
      if ($this->display[$display_id]->handler->access()) {
        return $display_id;
      }
    }
    return 'default';
  }

If I print the $display_id when logged in a a user without the "admin" role, I get this:
display_id: page_1
display_id: page
Fatal error: Call to a member function access() on a non-object in /home2/mckenzj7/public_html/cfpl/sites/all/modules/contrib/views/includes/view.inc on line 237

If I log into user1 (or any user with the Admin role), then I only get this:
display_id: page_1

So the real problem seems to be whatever routine is calling choose_display and how it is generating the $displays argument.

For now I am patching my choose_display routine to check to ensure that display[$display_id] is a valid object. But somebody who knows more about how Views works should look into whatever routine is generating the $displays array and adding the extraneous "page" element somewhere

Actually, as a followup:

When logged into user1 (or other user with "admin" role), the $displays array *still* has both "page_1" and "page" in it. However the loop stops at the first one because the handler->access() routine returns true. If I just dump the $displays array directly, I still see that it has the "page" $display_id at the end.

So when the user does not have any access to any display, it gets to the "page" entry at the end and gives the error because $this->display["page"] is not a defined object.

Also, if I just patch this routine to check is_object($this->display[$display_id]) then it fixes the error, but then it causes the view to be displayed even if the user doesn't have access to it. Which defeats the purpose of the access control in the first place.

This is on a live site so I can't really play around with disabling modules or anything like that. The only other access module that the site uses that might be somehow interfering with this is the Forum Access module and the Menu per Role module.

@ mpotter : How did you figure out which module is causing the problem?
