Version 4.1.18

Date Released: July 9th, 2019
  • Fix for resetting to default GUI using CF.loadGUI(null);

Version 4.1.17

Date Released: July 9th, 2019
  • Fix to allow HTTP Client systems to use SSL (https://)
  • When loading a zipped GUI, iViewer will now look for a GUI matching the device screen size, based on the filename (including any subfolders). First looks for a path matching ###w###h where the numbers are the screen width and height. If none found, then looks for match with just height ###h. Then if none found, looks for matching closest screen ratios to iOS sizes (896h, 812h, 736h, etc). Then if none still found, uses first .gui file found in zip.
  • So now a single zip file can be used to target multiple device screen variations.

  • Cleanup splash screen a little more

    • CF.setDeviceProperty(CF.StatusBarAppearanceProperty, CF.STATUS_BAR_VISIBLE);
    • CF.setDeviceProperty(CF.StatusBarAppearanceProperty, CF.STATUS_BAR_HIDDEN);
    • CF.setDeviceProperty(CF.NavigationBarAppearanceProperty, CF.NAVIGATION_BAR_VISIBLE);
    • CF.setDeviceProperty(CF.NavigationBarAppearanceProperty, CF.NAVIGATION_BAR_HIDDEN);
  • Fix for missing CF.device.uniqueIdentifier property in JS API
  • Updated splash screens to be more flexible on screen resolutions and reduce install size dramatically
  • Fix assets missing when loaded from zip (relating to backslashes used instead of forward slashes, or having spaces encoded in file names)
