Questions of the Week XXVII

This has been a REALLY busy week. We had to release an emergency plugin update during the week to workaround a critical issue in the previous plugin update. This was pretty hard!
To make things extra difficult we had two huge blog posts that I’ve worked on launching, the code itself wasn’t such a big deal as is all the hassle around them e.g. appstore submissions are never fun especially when traveling…​

After all these releases we still chose to release an update today It doesn’t have any ground breaking changes but does include the refinements I discussed yesterday in the blog.

On stack overflow things were as usual:

Soft back button not working

This should work regardless of where you call setBackCommand

Unable to build codename one app after adding admobfullscreen lib

Listen to side menu / hamburger menu clicked event

We need to implement this functionality in the sidemenu itself but until we do you can just add your own button as a side menu button and hide the default side menu button

Navigation between forms fires infiniteContainer refresh

It’s hard to give an answer when I have so little information to work with, I can’t stress this enough: use images to illustrate your point…​

How to enable Facebook authentication for Codename One on Android

SHA1 works fine on all devices guaranteed

ComboBox in codename one

I don’t like ComboBox as it derives from List which is problematic and adds problems of it’s own…​
