Fix for shareViaEmail -> if user cancels sharing email, success is still called

For an iOS App, We had a requirement to find whether cancel button is called or send button is called from the email composer using shareViaEmail.
We have just customized the SocialSharing.m and ng-cordova.js to achieve this.
This may be just a quick fix. We need this feature to be added in the feature release of plugins.
Below we are pasting the code we customized.

  • (void) mailComposeController:(MFMailComposeViewController*)controller

And replace it completely with below code.


  • Delegate will be called after the mail composer did finish an action
  • to dismiss the view.
  • (void) mailComposeController:(MFMailComposeViewController*)controller
    error:(NSError*)error {

    //bool ok = result == MFMailComposeResultSent;
    int ok = 0;
    if(result == MFMailComposeResultSent){
    ok = 1;
    } else if (result == MFMailComposeResultCancelled){
    ok = 2;

    [self.viewController dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:^{[self cycleTheGlobalMailComposer];}];
    CDVPluginResult * pluginResult;
    if(ok == 1) {
    pluginResult = [CDVPluginResult resultWithStatus:CDVCommandStatus_OK messageAsInt:ok];
    } else {
    pluginResult = [CDVPluginResult resultWithStatus:CDVCommandStatus_ERROR messageAsInt:ok];
    [self.commandDelegate sendPluginResult:pluginResult callbackId:_command.callbackId];

shareViaEmail: function (message, subject, toArr, ccArr, bccArr, fileArr)

And replace it completely with below code

var q = $q.defer();
toArr = toArr || null;
ccArr = ccArr || null;
bccArr = bccArr || null;
fileArr = fileArr || null;
$window.plugins.socialsharing.shareViaEmail(message, subject, toArr, ccArr, bccArr, fileArr, function (res) {
}, function (res) {
return q.promise;

if cancel is clicked, failure callback will be called, response data = 2
if send button is clicked and mail sent successfully, success callback will be called, response data = 1
if send button is clicked and sending failed, failure callback will be called, response data = 0

This is just a quick fix, please add them in feature plugin request.
