[Solved] Show splashscreen on "pause" cordova event


Is it possible with Ionic to display the splashscreen again any time after the app is loaded and running?


Yep, you can use the cordova splashscreen plugin and show/hide the splash screen as much as you want.


Cool, thanks for that. Now more specifically:

The reason I want to do that is because, when sending an app to the background, Android and iOS both take a screenshot of the state of the app. Problem is my app may display sensible information and I want to make sure they are not captured on those screenshots and stored temporarily somewhere on the device. That’s why I want to display the splashscreen on a “pause” cordova event and hide it again on “resume” event.

Problem is, when I try, the screenshot still shows the app’s last page and not the splashscreen, and I guess it’s because the screenshot is somehow taken by the system just before the execution of the function called at “pause” event.

Any idea on how to sort this out?

Hmm, well there are a few things you could do.

you could use the cordova pause event to show the splashscreen

$ionicPlatform.on('pause', function(){

Or you could take a look at this plugin

Which was build for the exact purpose you have. My vote is for the plugin.

That plug’in seems to be exactly what I was looking for. Cheers!

It did the job indeed. Thank you so much Mike. :slight_smile:

the plugin will disallow users to take screenshot manually as well.
Can i achieve this using pause/resume events?
