Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11304) White screen after relaunch when left with back button -> no splashscreen
Date Mon, 23 May 2016 07:37:12 GMT


Roberto De Simone commented on CB-11304:

Yes, I added the plugin - it displays nicely on start and I can also control it with the splashscreen
The version is: cordova-plugin-splashscreen 3.1.0 "Splashscreen"

These are the relevant Android settings in config.xml:

<preference name="SplashScreen" value="screen" />
<preference name="SplashScreenDelay" value="20000" />
<preference name="ShowSplashScreenSpinner" value="true"/>
<preference name="show-splash-screen-spinner" value="true"/>
<preference name="auto-hide-splash-screen" value="false"/>
<preference name="AutoHideSplashScreen" value="false"/>
<preference name="FadeSplashScreen" value="false"/>
<preference name="SplashShowOnlyFirstTime" value="false" />
<preference name="AndroidLaunchMode" value="singleTop" />

> Use the backbutton to suspend (exit) the app. When later relaunching the app - through
the app list or by selecting the app icon - the app loads again but without splash screen.
When the JS is heavy, like an Ionic 2 app there is a white screen for several seconds which
looks very ugly.
> This can be reproduced with the simplest possible Cordova app.
> 1. cordova create test com.mydomain.test test
> 2. cd test
> 3. cordova add platform android
> 4. cordova run android (on a device)
> 5. Press the backbutton
> 6. Switch to app list
> 7. Select the app
> -> for a very short time a white screen is visible - the time needed to load the JS.
As the simplest app has very little JS, the effect is difficult to see on fast devices like
a Nexus 6p. If you add heavy JS - like Ionic 2, then the effect is very well visible also
on fast devices.
> (Also to mention: the effect is the same when listening to the "backbutton" event and
trying to exit the app with " ")
