Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-263) PhoneGap Splash screen is incorrectly positioned
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2012 19:57:34 GMT


Alex Talis commented on CB-263:

That's definitely workable for now. Hopefully Apple won't decide that using non-standard launch
image sizes is a "violation". It would be nice if this work around was easier to find without
having to debug into PG source code. I googled this quite a bit but the most helpful thing
I found was that some people modified source code to use application frame instead of screen
bounds. Increasing image sizes is a much cleaner work around.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 1.4.0
>         Environment: Xcode 4.2, PhoneGap 1.4.1
>            Reporter: Alex Talis

> The splash screen image view is offset up by a distance that appears to be equal to the
height of the status bar. As a result, user can see portion of the white web view at the bottom
of the screen. The perceived effect is that the launch image briefly jumps up just before
the web view is revealed.
> To reproduce, set up a project like this:
> * Create new PhoneGap 1.4.1 iOS project.
> * Add info plist entry with key "Launch image (iPad)" and value "iPad".
> * Add iPad-Landscape.png and iPad-Portrait.png to project's Resources group. I used solid
red images (for contrast) of standard size (768x1004 and 1024x748).
> Run the project in iOS 5 simulator or an iOS 5 iPad to see the splash jump up.
> The problem seems to be that [PGViewController showSplashScreen] does not account for
status bar when it sizes and positions the image view.
