Re: Widget size limit

Hi tneil,


I am trying to assign the .htm file to the <a href ... > in the widget.

The widget page containing the <a> tag is obviously the htm page of the widget project itself.

The referenced page by <a> is not a part of widget and will be residing on the memory card.

My device shows me its path as


"/Memory Card/Folder1/Folder2/abcd.htm"


When I run the widget (signed) on the device, it pops the error saying that you should mention this in the <access> tag of the config.xml


Please guide me for the syntax. I have seen that you can mention the website address in <access uri="" element. How about the memory card?


Please guide.

Re: Widget size limit

If you are bringing the outside content into an anchor tag you will have to whitelist the URL in the access elements.


This will look something like:


<access uri="file:///myLocalDirectoryPath/" />

Re: Widget size limit

Is there also a limit to the number of files in a directory? I am having the same problem in a directory where I have about 500 files.


Is it the total number of files or the files in a directory?


When I reduce the files, the app compiles, else it gives an rapc error.
