Web page visualization inside of iRIdium (not supported)

It is not possible to load and navigate trough web-page with the iRidium. This feature is not planed for a close versions of app. But in iridim you can make an analog of the web-commnds using GET and POST methods of HTTP driver.

Trigger button in static list

In the project you use a Static List to show the popups. On the popups we see a triggers and you set up a command sending by the Release event.
When the item is on the list, it has an Move event for dragging. So, when you Press and Release a button for a shot time, it works correct. But when we move a button (like a micro-swipe) the Release event does not work, only Press and then Move.
So, if you use a Press event for the Trigger on the list - it works, if use Receve on the normal page or Popup - it works. But when you use Release on the Static List - it has a chanse to be faild. And that is what we saw.
You need to change a trigger event from Release to Press.

How the $P works?

You can use the $P template in the text field of level item only. The level item has the Current value and Maximum value. $P counting the present of curren value from the maximum value and shows it like a $P$  = 80% (80/100)

Gestures and Lists

If a list is put on a page that has a swipe left or swipe right action it is very difficult to move the list. 
The swipe left\right are executed instead of moving the list.

This peculiarity will be changed later, but now it is better to use only gestures or only the lists

iRidium running on Google TV box

In general it is not possible to run iRIdium on TV box with Android. The reason of it is a special Android builds running on this items. TV box don't have a screen implemented and other hardware specifics which could not be processed by iRidium core, so the app crashes.

What Android devices has iRidium been tested on?

iRidium supports Android based smart-phones and tablet PCs beginning with Android 2.3 and higher. But we cannot guarantee its work on all devices as Android is an open OS and manufactures of Android devices can make changes which are not compatible with iRidium work. . We recommend to test how iRidium works on the selected panel by launching a sample GUI on it.

Please see the list of devices tested by our customers:
http://www.iridiummobile.net/recommended-equipment/

[ ! ] Lab tests of iRidium for Android were made on such devices as HTC Sensation and HTC Incredible S (UDP transport on HTC drain firmware does not work which causes inoperability of the "Search" function and forced project update for this smartphone in Transfer. The update is possible after restarting the application.). The testing cannot guarantee 100% work of your project in the similar Android device due to the possible differences in the firmware and project functional.

i2 Control for Android is crashing...

If it happens, take a look at the [ JS ] window in your project.
Save to file and try to remove all the scripts in the project and start the app again.
If the app doesn't crashes anymore the problem is in the Scripts. Maybe it is some syntax error there.
You can use the Debugging to find a problem.

If you cannot solve it yourself, please contact to support team

Notifications about the system events when the app closed or minimized

[V2.2] You can set up receipt of notifications when iRidium minimized on iOS. This "Local" background notifications works from 2 to 19 minutes, so we do not recomend to use it to inform about important events.

When the app cloased, you cannot get a notification at all


How to setup:


var in_BG = false;

IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_TAG_CHANGE, IR.GetDevice("DRIVER"), function(name, value)
{
if(name == 'STATUS' && in_BG)
{
// Sound identifiers
SOUND_ID = {
None : 0, // without sound
Default : 1, // standard notification sound on iOS
Ringing : 2, // standard ringtone
}
// Creation of required variables
string = "DRIVER " + name + " VALUE = " + value;
id = "" + name;
delay = 0; // seconds
sound_id = SOUND_ID.Default;
// badge – the numeric icon on the app icon
badge_increment_num = 1;
IR.SendNotification(string, delay, sound_id, badge_increment_num, id);
}
});

// when the application goes to the background
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_APP_ENTER_BACKGROUND, 0, function()
{
in_BG = true;
});

// when the application comes to the foreground
IR.AddListener(IR.EVENT_APP_ENTER_FOREGROUND, 0, function()
{
in_BG = false;
});
