Can't call alert() in windows app


I opened a github issue but it was closed because alert is a browser feature not an ionic feature. You can view the issue for more info but it’s pretty simple: “alert();” does not work in windows apps and I’d expect this to work as it’s a pretty basic browser function.


Have you tried Ionic’s alert component?


I have not but I would expect it to work just fine. I could make a helper function to get nearly the same ease of just calling alert() but it just seems strange to be that such a basic component of javascript doesn’t work in windows but it does for iOS and Android. It would be like if console.log() didn’t work.


Well, you should be complaining to Windows then.
