Dart Mirrors in JS: type '_ListConstructorSentinel' is not a subtype of type 'int'


The following code executes fine on the VM, but fails with

“‘_ListConstructorSentinel’ is not a subtype of type ‘int'”

when converted to javascript via Dart2JS. I’m using “pub run test -p chrome ” to run the code.

import "dart:mirrors";

main() {
  TypeMirror tm = new TypeToken<List<String>>().typeMirror;
  (tm as ClassMirror).newInstance(const Symbol(""), []);

class TypeToken<T> {
  TypeMirror get typeMirror => reflectType(T);


type '_ListConstructorSentinel' is not a subtype of type 'int'

Am I doing something that shouldn’t be allowed, or is this a bug? If it’s a bug, is there any way to work around it?

Thanks in advance!


Looks like this is a known issue: github.com/dart-lang/sdk/issues/21927
