Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11739) Inconsistent execution of executeScript in Cordova inAppBrowser on iOS
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2016 21:21:20 GMT


Jack Eastburn commented on CB-11739:

Ok, I have a workaround, but it's not ideal. It seems to work every time on iOS devices when
I remove the cordova-plugin-wkwebview-engine Plugin. Given that this helps optimize the app,
it seems this isn't a great scenario. WKWebView seems to be the issue so may be related to
and [CB-10698|].

> It seems executeScript is not always being called on devices, but always called on emulators.
The script executes maybe every other time. But it's never even that consistent. Listener
is added every time correctly. Works consistently on Android. Possibly related to the strange
behavior others are seeing with WKWebView?

> Both the emulator and iPhone are using iOS 9.3.4. I'm at a loss for what's different
about the emulator environment compared to the iPhone environment that could cause this.
