Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-10498) Resume event not guaranteed to be received with plugin result
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2016 18:29:39 GMT


Richard B Knoll commented on CB-10498:

I have a fix for this. It changes the behavior of the resume event to be as follows:

1. When the app starts and there is no plugin result to be delivered, the *resume event will
not fire* (same as current behavior)
2. When the app is left and then resumed (e.g. press the home button and then return to the
app), the *resume event will fire but will not be sticky* (same as current behavior)
3. When the app is recreated after a plugin Activity finishes (i.e. the event payload contains
a pending result), the *resume event will fire and will be sticky*

In the third scenario, subscribing to the resume event after it has been fired in the webview
will cause the event listener to be immediately called with the resume event and the pending
result. This should let you subscribe to the event whenever you want. I believe the behavior
recommended by our docs is to do so as part of the deviceready event, so I will probably need
to update my sample application in the Android lifecycle docs so that it actually does this.
Subscribing at that point should be enough to make sure you don't miss any resume events from
scenarios two and three.

You should only subscribe to the resume event once, because once the event is "stuck" by the
third scenario it will keep being delivered whenever you add an event listener.

> The save/restore API delivers results in the resume event. The issue is, it is possible
to "miss" the resume event if you don't add an event handler in time.
