Subject [jira] [Updated] (CB-9205) Whitelist "launch-external" setting does nothing
Date Mon, 31 Aug 2015 23:56:46 GMT


Shazron Abdullah updated CB-9205:
    Component/s: Plugin Whitelist

> Whitelist "launch-external" setting does nothing
> ------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-9205
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Plugin Whitelist
>    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.
