Re: 0.9.4 Simulator Issues

navigateToURL() from Adobe AIR seems to be completely broken.  Before it would launch the browser but would not navigate to a new page if the browser was already opened.

 

Now it does nothing at all.

 

I do have <permission>access_internet</permission> set but I doubt this should even be an issue.

Re: 0.9.4 Simulator Issues

Some things i have noticed:


  • can't use physical keyboard to type in sim anymore
  • can't change or close tabs in browser

Can anyone confirm this?

Re: 0.9.4 Simulator Issues

double click still doesn't work:

 

 

package
{
	//Imports
	import flash.display.Sprite;
	import flash.display.StageAlign;
	import flash.display.StageScaleMode;
	import flash.events.MouseEvent;
	
	//Class
	public class PlayBookTest extends Sprite
	{	
		//Constructor
		public function PlayBookTest()
		{
			stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.NO_SCALE;
			stage.align = StageAlign.TOP_LEFT;
			
			stage.doubleClickEnabled = true;
			stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.DOUBLE_CLICK, doubleClickEventHandler);
		}
		
		//Double Click Event Handler
		private function doubleClickEventHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
		{
			trace ("Double Click");
		}
		
	}
}

Re: 0.9.4 Simulator Issues

The tabs issue can probably be lumped under the related "tabs don't render properly" in Known Issues.

 

The physical keyboard issue is likely not a new one.  Each old simulator has had a similar problem, though it's intermittent.  I can use the physical keyboard on the new one, so far.  I've never found a reliable fix before, but between restarting, closing and reopening apps, and such, it's always come around for me sooner or later.

Vimeo's videos seem to play in the browser, but youtube does not.

Re: 0.9.4 Simulator Issues

Not all of the new permission settings have any effect.

 

So far, it looks like there's both inconsistency and unimplemented stuff.

 

access_internet may or may not show up, for reasons unknown

 

read_geolocation, record_audio, and use_camera seem to work okay

 

Each of access_shared, play_audio, or set_audio_volume seem to be ignored.

Re: 0.9.4 Simulator Issues

Not a bug per se, but pretty annoying from a troubleshooting ability point of view:  /var/log is now protected against viewing by "devuser" (when you're connected via SSH).
