I should add that trying to Exit the app gives me this error :
404 Not Found.
The file /exit was not found.
In my application.rb I have code like :
"Go Home" => :home,
"Refresh View" => :refresh,
"About" => "/app/Link/about",
"View Log" => :log,
"Reset Database" => "/app/Settings/reset",
"Exit" => :exit
Reset Database gives this error :
Error: can't convert Symbol into Fixnum
Any help would be appreciated.
Windows Phone 7 support is deprecated. You have to use rhodes 4.0 and build your app for WP8.
Links and view log feature are not implemented at all.
You can use rake tasks: device:wp8:getlog or emulator:wp8:getlog to get log. But you have to close app on emulator/device before using this rake command.
Before I invest in a Windows 8 machine, I'd like to know what features are and what are not implemented for Windows 8. Nothing of that sort is being displayed in the current documentation.
Or am I missing something?
Mark, can you pls let me know what features you need?
Those which I listed and which produced the errors. In addition, for immediate future projects, camera, barcode and signature capture, NFC (I suppose I'd require RhoElements licenses for these).
Just my 2 cents, but looking at the API Compatibility List, I see there are more features supported for WP7+ (not sure what + means, whether it includes 7.5 & 8), in Rho 2.2 rather than in 4.0, and even in 2.2 API List, it looks like more features are supported in 2.0, rather than in 2.2
So, for the feature set I need, would it be better if I try out Rho 2.2 instead (I guess its still supported?)
Are there any Rho apps that have been published in the Windows Store that I can check out?
As i said before links and view log feature are not implemented at all. Camera, signature capture, NFC are not supported as well.
Currently we now suspended WP8 development so i have no ideas when these features will be implemented. on WP7 camera, signature capture, NFC are not supported as well.
Yes. Wrong. Yes it has very low priority right now.
Are AsyncHTTP post and get implemented for WP?
Kindly help to get the API Compatibility Matrix for both 2.2 and 4.0 corrected. Its annoyingly frustrating to see wrong documentation.
And a total waste of time and resources trying to make something which is not actually supported work.
This is a heads up for the documentation team (I hope they're listening) and that necessary corrections are made to the relevant portions of the docs ASAP.
We are currently trying to create our application for Windows Phone 8 and we are running into the same issues that Mark here provided. Sadly tho, the camera is not working in 4.1.1, and I cannot find it in the compatibility matrix (Rhomobile | RhoMobile API Summary).
Also, after some Google work I found this post on github: RhoMobile limits in WP8 platform support are not documented · Issue #152 · rhomobile/rhomobile-docs · GitHub wich states that "support for WP8 is incomplete and not actively developed at the moment.".
Is this still the case? Because the term incomplete does not sound right to me, I would rather stick with "very limited".
I'm happy that Pietro raised an issue regarding this. But that was 4 months ago (before 4.1 appeared on the scene). Wonder if the issues are fixed (still waiting to get my hands on a Windows 8 PC ), but going by what you're saying, it looks not.
I specifically asked Adam Blum during the 4.1 release webinar whether Camera is supported. He replied in the negative.
For other features, you might have to resort to editing some files like I did here : The Xap Processing for the package failed. Please help!
With the help of Konstantin and Albert-Rolan Timashev (https://developer.motorolasolutions.com/people/albert%40motorolasolutions.com) maybe we can get some "unsupported" or "non-working" features working.
I'm wondering how may Rhomobile apps are there in the Windows Phone Store. Because I've been experiencing problems with the generated XAP out there (Ref.Kitchen Sink .XAP File)
Can't see a way of posting a poll in Launchpad....
