Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8396) AutoHideSplashScreen not working on Android
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 03:31:36 GMT


Andrew Grieve commented on CB-8396:

iOS hides the splash screen at a sensible time during load (based  on the onload event IIRC).
Android just has a dumb timeout, so there isn't really and "auto-hide" logic in it to start
with atm.

I think the Android Splash Screen could use some love in terms of more intelligent default
auto-hide logic, and then maybe this pref would make sense to add.

For now though, would it work for you to just set "SplashScreenDelay" to some large value?
and then call .hide() in code when you're ready?

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android, Plugin SplashScreen
>    Affects Versions: Master
>         Environment: Android 5.0.1 emulator.

> In config.xml I've set:
> {code:title=config.xml|borderStyle=solid}
> <preference name="AutoHideSplashScreen" value="false" />`
> {code}
> This has no effect on the Android platform. Splash screen autohides after 3 seconds (the
default SplashScreenDelay).
> Tested on Android 5.0.1.
> If I look at the code here []
I'd expect to see something like this somewhere: 
> {|borderStyle=solid}
> preferences.getBoolean("AutoHideSplashScreen", false);
> {code}
> Maybe this has something to do with it?
> If you need any more info, please let me know.
