Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-9205) Whitelist "launch-external" setting does nothing
Date Wed, 17 Jun 2015 22:08:02 GMT
Steve Hull created CB-9205:

             Summary: Whitelist "launch-external" setting does nothing
                 Key: CB-9205
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.8.0
         Environment: OSX 10.10
Cordova 3.8.0
iOS 8.3
            Reporter: Steve Hull

according to [cordova docs|],
you should be able to specify in the config file which urls will open in an external browser
by setting:

{{<access origin="*" launch-external="yes" />}}

However this does nothing.

I've looked into the definition of {{shouldStartLoadWithRequest}}, and it does indeed have
a line near the bottom that would load the url in the external system browser ({{[[UIApplication
sharedApplication] openURL:url]}}), however it appears that it would be impossible for this
line to be executed as long as the protocol is {{http}} or {{https}}.

I'm not sure what the "correct" way is to address this, however it seems that old versions
of the docs should be updated to reflect that {{launch-external}} does not do anything and
maybe we could start paying attention to that config attribute going forward.
