Invocation from backgrounded apps

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I'm not sure if this is a bug or a feature - but when I'm try to invoke another app (browser in my specific case) from an app that's running in the background (launched by a push notification or sitting on home screen) the InvokeRequest isn't executed, as if it wasn't even there. I have tried using a NotificationDialog but that doesn't seem to work either - which is a bit puzzling since the Calendar app, for example, does it - clicking the "View details" button in "New calendar event" dialog launches the Calendar app.

 

Any suggestions? A bug or a feature? If a feature, is there a way to override it? :]

I was told by development that tt is doing that by design.  You may want to check to see if there is an open feature request or create one.

Correct. It is by design. However we are looking in to allowing invocations from NotificationDialogs your app owns.

Unfortunately not yet. Still tracking it for a future release though. I will be pushing it hard for the next OS release.

Ok.  Also invoke from Headless to UI app would be nice too.

Re: Invocation from backgrounded apps

I dont think that will ever happen for obvious reasons. We are looking in to allowing notification dialogs for headless apps though.
