    Default PhoneGap how to catch errors and other help needed.

    I've been playing with PhoneGap and trying to convert my existing mobile web app to a native android app.

    When there is an error -- right now I'm getting an error when trying to download a pdf drawing -- it just sends me to a "Webpage Not available" screen and says "The webpage at error.html might be temporarily...blah blah."

    How to I make it show something useful and just as importantly, how do I allow the app to keep running. Currently I have to force stop it because I can't navigate away from that page.

    Hello? *crickets chirping*

    Along with my downloading problems, I'm having a problem with the "working" image not showing up and also binary image files from a DB aren't showing up either. It all works fine in the exact same application over the web but not when compiled and run with PhoneGap.

    To answer one of your question. I found that ticking Embed Image in HTML allows for database image to show up correctly in the phone gap app.

    I too seem to be lacking a lot of info about phone gap building with alpha five.

    Jinx - Have you tried using the Weinre debugger?

    Thanks Dan, I'll give that a try as soon as I get a chance.

    Dave, no; isn't that penicillin?
