Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

  • Phonegap Build failing?

    Hey everyone,

    For a while now I've had 0 issue building projects with phonegap, but it appears as of late, all my builds are failing, and I can't quite figure out why. I'm looking through the logs of the build and seeing this:

    Any help would be really appreciated

    Re: Phonegap Build failing?

    There's a lot of information missing here... Alpha vesion/build, PGP Cli Version, PhoneGap Builder Version, Android Minimum SDK Version.

    PhoneGap Build goes through a flux of changes every few months which manages to really mess things up for a while. Things settle down... all is going well... and then they change things again. Kinda like Alpha actually.

    If you're using PhoneGap Version cli-7.0.1... try changing to cli-7.1.0.

      Re: Phonegap Build failing?

      Hey David,

      Alpha version is Version 12.4.5.2, build 4770, addins build 5018
      CLI version is 6.5, i've tried 7.0.1 and 7.1.0 with no luck, same issue
      Minimum android version SDK is 19

      Not sure if this'll help. This is strange, I've never seen anything close to this before when using phonegap in alpha.

          I found the issue actually, it seems to be that google analytics was the issue. Removing that plugin has fixed the issue.

              Re: Phonegap Build failing?

              I created a NEW build, with new components. First build went fine. I went to create a new baseline build and got the same error message from AS. Is anyone else getting this error? I removed all plugins as a test but get the same thing. If I turned instant update OFF (it was on for the first build) I do not get the error.

                Re: Phonegap Build failing?

                How did you disable PushWoosh? This sounds like a issue with your config.xml file... which is an extremely sensitive file. It also sounds like you're using the Instant Update feature.

                Does "created a NEW build" mean you created a new PhoneGap Build Project? That would have created a new config.xml file in it's current format and should be ok.
                Do you edit the config.xml file in any way other than through the Alpha PhoneGap builder?

                  Re: Phonegap Build failing?

                  I've confirmed the error you're seeing. It has nothing to do with Instant Update. And... you don't have to go through the process of submitting to PhoneGap Build.

                  If I add the PushWoosh Plugin and Save... and then get back into the builder and uncheck the PushWoosh Plugin... and Save... I get the error you're reporting.

                  I see this error in the latest official release 5487 and in the latest pre-release 5515.

                  You should report this as a bug to Alpha.

                  The issue is that you cannot remove the PushWoosh plugin using the builder. To work around this, edit your config.xml file outside of Alpha. Remove the PushWoosh plugin line and save the file. You should now be back to building normally.

                      Re: Phonegap Build failing?

                      That’s a bug in some old code that is only fired when the PushWoosh plugin is removed.
                      Surprised it was just reported.
                      Goes to show you how often someone adds the PushWoosh plugin and then removes it!

                      Pushing update out now for inclusion in tomorrows’ pre-release build.

                      Simple work around, remove the plugin install code from the project config.xml file.
                      <plugin name="pushwoosh-pgb-plugin" source="npm" version="7.0.7" />

                      If you indicated that you wanted support for beacons and geotags you also should remove this code as well.

                      <gap:config-file platform="ios" parent="UIBackgroundModes" overwrite="true">
                      <array>
                      <string>location</string>
                      </array>
                      </gap:config-file>


                      <gap:config-file platform="ios" parent="NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription">
                      <string>This app uses location services for use with push notifications.</string>
                      </gap:config-file>

                        Re: Phonegap Build failing?

                        I've been having my PhoneGap builds failing every time I try to use Phonegap 8.0 (7.1 works fine). The message on PhoneGap is usually related to plug-ins, such as Whitelist or Toast. I tried unchecking these plug-ins, but they always seem to not allow me to uncheck them. I took your advice today and removed them from the config.xml file, and now I am getting errors on other plug-ins. I can continue removing plug-ins, or possibly modify the plug-in version in the config.xml file. I’m just not sure if this is normal behavior or if anyone else has had problems with PhoneGap 8.0. I have included the error message from PhoneGap below

                          Re: Phonegap Build failing?

                          PhoneGap Build is a moving target of updates and incompatibilities between plugins and PhoneGap releases. Everything runs just fine for months, then a new PGB release comes out and all hell breaks loose with plugin versions.

                          Using PhoneGap Version cli-8.0.0 I don't have any issues with Whitelist or Toast plugins... using these versions...

                          Code:
                          	<plugin name="cordova-plugin-whitelist" source="npm" version="1.3.3" />
                          	<plugin name="cordova-plugin-x-toast" source="npm" version="2.6.0" />
                          If you're using a current version of Alpha, but an older project... and therefore an older config.xml file, then that could be an issue with plugin versions. You could try renaming your config.xml file, and letting Alpha create a new config.xml for you. You'll need to add everything again, but it's a small price to pay to get a current config.xml file.

                          Again, it may not be Whitelist or Toast causing the issue, but some other plugin. You've have to list the other plugins you're using and their versions.

                            Yes, these are the versions of white list and toast that I am using. I tried it out in a brand new PhoneGap project and have gotten the same result.
