Cascades Banners ... is placeholder showing?

Basically, if the ad placeholder banner is still showing i want to handle the click myself .... i.e. if i'm not showing an ad and they click my placeholder, something should happen. i want to be prepared for what I'm hearing is a not-so-great fill rate.

 

Is there a way to tell if the placeholder URL is currently showing?

The current Ad Services implementation does not support this yet but the request is in to get this exposed.

 

For the meantime you would basically need to implement the ad display yoursellf; with a WebView this is actually not as daunting as it may seem:

Re: Cascades Banners ... is placeholder showing?

Is there a general-ish rough guess ETA? i.e. weeks? months? is it being worked on? The whole point to the Banner and the ad services is to avoid having to do this kind of work ourselves. If the fix is forthcoming reasonably soon, i don't want to burn time trying to re-invent the wheel. Thanks!

I haven't been provided an ETA from dev but I would not expect to see this for at least a few months.

Hmmm...so _at least_ a few months means likely longer, so i guess i will have to implement it myself and bypass the BBAS altogether. Unfortunate, but i guess i have to roll with it. Thanks!
