So - I then resorted to writing to the home directory of JS, "assets/charts", and since the files are now in the same directory, and using url: "graphData.xml", it finally WORKS! So - given this, I think there's something in JS that is not friendly to relative paths and path re-directions. This solution works for me, so I'll keep it as is.

So, you can write in the assets folder ? right ? But this folder is marked as readonly

Re: Access to app's working directory

No you can only write in the assets folder under debug, your app will crash if you attempt to do this on a release build.

If you've been helped click on Like Button, if you've been saved buy the app. Smiley Happy
