Playbook webworks loadingScreen

I am experiencing a white flash in my application after the loading screen goes away but before the contents of index.html show.  Has anybody experienced this and know what the issue might be?  I even stripped out all the content of our page so it was just an empty page with a background color.

Re: Playbook webworks loadingScreen

The white screen you see is the blank Web View object used to render you WebWorks content.  It appears briefly between your loading screen image and the application content.


I agree this is incorrect behavior, as it is coming directly from the WebWorks framework.  Since you cannot get rid of it (with the current version of the SDK), I would consider this as a bug.


Please log this as a defect in the Developer Issue Tracker.
