QML Object reference question

  • Hello, I am quite new in QT and QML and Id like to ask about object life in QML. I have a sample code for a "small game". The idea is to press the same colors with both fingers ( touch only) and they will vanish. Its in concept only, and I`ve made some small code to aid it. The idea is that the screen is populated with random images ( colors with Rect in my case ). When I click on specific Rect - it vanishes. Here is my main.qml file ( where all starts ).
    import QtQuick 2.0
    import "Engine.js" as Engine
    import "ObjectCreator.js" as ObjectCreator

    Item {
    id: main
    Component.onCompleted: (function() {
    Engine.Engine.createScreen(0,0, 640, 480);
    (function() {
    var color = ["red", "green", "blue", "black", "pink","yellow"];
    var tmp = 0;
    for ( var i=0; i <640 ; i+= 40) {
    for ( var j=0; j < 480; j+= 40) {
    i, j, 40, 40,
    , "o"+tmp,
    function() {
    } //emd for() 2
    } // end for() 1
    MouseArea {
    /*optional */
    id: event
    anchors.fill: parent
    onClicked: function () {}

    Timer {
        id: mainThread;
        interval: 100;
        running: true;
        repeat: true;
        onTriggered: function(){
            var o = Engine.Engine.getAllObjects();
             for(var i=0; i < o.length; i++) {

    } //end main
    When I run it - on click it performs as expected - the object is destroyed and a white field replaces it, however, the log says : "file:///home/ilian/QT5/untitled2/inline:1: TypeError: Cannot read property of null". I want to ask - is it safe or is it malicious? There is no object in the clicked area so can I just skip the error or I must make some checks to avoid it?
    I cant add Engine.js, CallStack.js and ObjectCreator.js since they are large, but the idea is that Engine calls ObjectCreator which makes a Rect in X,Y with Width and Height and color, and adds a function to Objects private CallStack for further usage. For now I just add a foo and pop it from 0 index. In my case the method passed in the ObjectCreation so click performs destroy(). getSelf() return reference to the Rect object - not to the ObjectCreator, Engine has a list of ObjectCreators - the class is not factory and the name should be Object for convinience but for now Ive left it as it is, since Ive planned it to be a factory.
