Hi Shazron,

Actually I started out building it this way, I’ve changed it to way it’s now, because
it didn’t work. Once the application has moved to the background trying to invoke the method
with the plugin result no longer works. I’ve seen other plugins use the ‘named’ callback
’trick’ and thought that was the way to invoke a callback from background. Shall I try
to investigate why this is not working?

Cheers,
	Erik Jan
