Unique Id on modal crashing bot submission after cancel

I see this question all over the discord and I've tried numerous different suggestions that people have given and yet I still can't get this to work. I'm hitting the good ole, "modal pop-up, user hits cancel, modal pop-up again, submit, modal submission is recorded, bot fails due to an unknown interaction 10062. To my knowledge what's happening is there is no response to the first initial opening of the modal. Therefore, when the next modal is completed, the queue is ruined and the bot doesn't know what to do with it. The biggest thing is ensuring that the id of the interation is unique, aka using the interaction.id and setting that to the modal customId, yet this doesn't seem to work for me. I'm even passing in a random number. I'm sure it's something little and if it is, drop me the documentation and tell me it's a skill issue and I'll read more.

you're adding the user's id to the custom id which won't be unique per interaction because it's still the same user in this scenario and your random number appears to be generated once upon loading the file, not every time you receive this command

Okay so I tried this and it still doesn’t work. I changed the custom id to ‘my-modal-${interaction.Id}’

in what way does it not work? care to share your updated code?

New issue when I try this though. The modal won't submit.

(interaction) => interaction.customId === `myModal-${interaction.id}`
(interaction) => interaction.customId === `myModal-${interaction.id}`
you may want to rethink which interaction's id you want to access here
Gbrad
Gbrad3mo ago
hmmmm does that not look at the current interaction?

(you could probably start by not naming multiple variables the same thing)

let me mess around with it a bit Okay I owe you a thank you. This was a skill issue. I'm new to JS so I was being a bonehead and just trying to use arrow syntax functions without truly knowing what they do. Here are my changes
modal.addComponents(firstActionRow, secondActionRow, thirdActionRow, fourthActionRow, fifthActionRow);

await interaction.showModal(modal);

// wait for the modal to be submitted
const filter = (currentInteraction) => currentInteraction.customId === `myModal-${interaction.id}`;

interaction
.awaitModalSubmit({ filter, time: 60_000 })
.then((modalInteraction) => {
const whoPlayedInTheGameInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('whoPlayedInTheGameInput');
const gameFormatInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('gameFormatInput');
const whoWonTheGameInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('whoWonTheGameInput');
const howLongWasTheGameInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('howLongWasTheGameInput');
const matchHighlightInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('matchHighlightInput');

const output = `Players: ${whoPlayedInTheGameInputValue}\nFormat: ${gameFormatInputValue}\nWinner: ${whoWonTheGameInputValue}\nMatch Time: ${howLongWasTheGameInputValue}\nMatch Highlight: ${matchHighlightInputValue}`;

modalInteraction.reply(output);
console.log(`----- ${interaction.user.username} successfully created a record -----\n${output}`);
})
.catch((err) => {
console.log(`Error: ${err}`);
});
},
modal.addComponents(firstActionRow, secondActionRow, thirdActionRow, fourthActionRow, fifthActionRow);

await interaction.showModal(modal);

// wait for the modal to be submitted
const filter = (currentInteraction) => currentInteraction.customId === `myModal-${interaction.id}`;

interaction
.awaitModalSubmit({ filter, time: 60_000 })
.then((modalInteraction) => {
const whoPlayedInTheGameInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('whoPlayedInTheGameInput');
const gameFormatInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('gameFormatInput');
const whoWonTheGameInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('whoWonTheGameInput');
const howLongWasTheGameInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('howLongWasTheGameInput');
const matchHighlightInputValue = modalInteraction.fields.getTextInputValue('matchHighlightInput');

const output = `Players: ${whoPlayedInTheGameInputValue}\nFormat: ${gameFormatInputValue}\nWinner: ${whoWonTheGameInputValue}\nMatch Time: ${howLongWasTheGameInputValue}\nMatch Highlight: ${matchHighlightInputValue}`;

modalInteraction.reply(output);
console.log(`----- ${interaction.user.username} successfully created a record -----\n${output}`);
})
.catch((err) => {
console.log(`Error: ${err}`);
});
},
The fix was that the const filter is a function and then (currentInteraction) is an inline function itself that takes in one parameter and this is declared as currentInteraction. Now the method looks at the parameter's customId and checks it against the id set at the top of the class. Constructive criticism is my favorite so thank you @duck for making me rethink my work.
