Hi, how are folks handling android’s multi-window support in cordova or using browser events? Specifically, I am trapping the
pause event in my app and doing cleanup because when the app is not running in multi-window mode, it actually means the app is going to the background. I use this callback to clear up some expensive memory resources (which includes live video feeds being displayed).
However, in multi-window mode, when you lay two apps next to each other and perform any activity on the other app, cordova generates the
pause event. Obviously, in this case, I don’t want to do the cleanup because the UI is still visible.
So the question is, does cordova offer a way to:
a) Either detect if the app is running in multi-window mode
b) Or, differentiate between a
pause event and a
stop event (as described in this SO thread)
I noticed this note in cordova-discuss but the author doesn’t mention which one line change. I only found a change related to
androidresizable being set to
true but that is not my problem. The app does take its window in multi-window and doesn’t go full screen. Its the events that are causing issues.
