My app needs to save project state upon closing, so I'm handling the NAVIGATOR_EXIT message and starting my save to shared storage then.
The problem is, the project files can be quite large (up to 10Mb) depending on the user content and because the app only has ~500ms to exit before the system forcefully shuts it down, I'm running into cases where the auto-save is failing to complete. I can handle the case of the file not being completely saved when starting up next time, but it means a bad user experience because they will potentially have lost work.
The API reference says an app can call navigator_extend_timeout() to allow it up to 30s to create its window. I'd like to know if there's an equivalent to extend the forced app closed timout in the same way or something equivalent?
I don't need 30 seconds, just 1-2 more...even if it's running in the background at low priority with no window at that point.
Solved! Go to Solution.
