Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1672) "alert" calls don't stack as they do on other platforms
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 13:22:03 GMT


Matthew Baxter-Reynolds commented on CB-1672:

What I'm seeing is that you only get Foobar. Barfoo never displays. On iOS it displays one
then immediately displays the other.

The reason why I bring this up is that in the previous version of the Win8 bit I was looking
at, it actually crashed with a "permission denied" error. (WinRT's reused HRESULT to mean
"I'm already showing that, you can't do it again".) How I found this was that I had some debugging
messages in some temporary code in an active iOS PhoneGap project that I pulled forward to
test on Win8. I accept it has no practical use.

The Cordova version I pulled this morning didn't crash, so I would presume that part has been

In hindsight, I wonder whether this is just "should we document this as a quirk"? I'm happy
to do that if so.
