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.

  • File Upload To S3

    I have several File Upload to S3 actions that work when in Google Chrome web browser but in my PhoneGap app, it doesnt work. When the button is clicked that is tied to the File Uploads to S3, nothing happens. This use to work but it isnt now and I havent made any changes but to upgrade to the latest release. Any ideas why the File Upload to S3 isnt working?

    Re: File Upload To S3

    It's probably because of the iOS 12.2 update. I believe the File Upload - Amazon S3 used to work as well. I've confirmed that it still works in Android.

      So this is something Alpha is going have to fix in its next release?

        Re: File Upload To S3

        Just to confirm... you are using the Action "File Upload - Amazon S3 Storage or Alpha Anywhere Server". If so, I get the same results... nothing happens. This is the only "File Upload" action that allowed multiple file selection from the device library AND S3.

        It's not an Alpha problem... in a sense. iOS and Android have been going through major security changes... and, as a result, a bucket of stuff is getting messed up.

        You say you upgraded to the latest release... of what? iOS or Alpha?

          Re: File Upload To S3

          Yes, it is File Upload - Amazon S3 Storage or Alpha Anywhere Server. I upgraded to latest release of Alpha and IOS (12.2). What is the remedy here, another Alpha release to address the issue?

            Re: File Upload To S3

            The remedy is to report it to Alpha. I've confirmed that this action worked in iOS 12.1.4.

              There are several issues that happened due to IOS 12.2 update. Pain in the arse! You may need to devise an alternate method in your app that goes around the problem altogether. I would definitely report it though, and maybe Alpha can fix. Also, PhoneGap has build 8.1 but Alpha only has 8.0. Could be that Alpha just needs to update the PhoneGap builder to include the newest PhoneGap build.

                You can change the CLI version used in the config.xml file... you don't need to wait until Alpha adds it... just click Save and then the link to edit the config.xml file. I've asked that field be a input and dropdown so that we can easily use what we want... but that's not going to happen.

                  Re: File Upload To S3

                  I tried to change the config.xml file to 8.1.0 but Phonegap is saying 8.1.0 isnt supported?

                    Re: File Upload To S3

                    The cli version is 8.1.1.

                    Overall, I doubt this is going to help you. iOS and PhoneGap Build are moving targets of changes and issues. Not so much iOS... usually... but... 12.2 has really messed up a lot of stuff for PhoneGap Build... and the way Alpha does stuff.

                    One of the big problems is iOS moving away from UIWebView... the default webview used by PGB. iOS has deprecated it... and although it's still there... there are issues with it and iOS 12.2. Further, iOS will drop UIWebView... soon. Alpha has to make major changes to WKWebView to get it to play nice with Alpha.

                    You can try to get Alpha to fix the issues... I don't think they are big.

                      Changing the version to 8.1.1 didnt work. It was mentioned that there is an alternate method to go around the problem altogether. What is that alternate method?

                        Re: File Upload To S3

                        I didn't think it would work. This issue comes from a change in iOS 12.2 What Alpha is doing to launch the process no longer works under iOS 12.2. You should report it to them.

                        I'd like to know the alternate method mentioned as well.
