  • the user will have the ability to click one of the parent windows of opened window.
    AndroidiPhone/iPad The controls found in the parent windows cannot be accessed by the user as long as a child window is opened.

Limitations

  • OpenMobileWindow must not be called in the event "Initializing" associated with the project.
  • Universal Windows 10 App OpenMobileWindow must not be called in the event "Closing" of a child window.

A window opened with OpenMobileWindow can be closed with Close (without parameters) from any event associated with the window or a control in the window.

Title of the window to be opened

By default, the window title is the one defined in the editor (in the "General" tab of the description window).
To modify the window title, use NextTitle or CurrentTitle.
Android

Application in the background: Specific case from Android 10

From Android 10, it is no longer possible to open a window when the application is in the background.
OpenMobileWindow can open a window. If this function is used while the application is in the background, a fatal error will occur.
Tips:
  • It is possible to determine if the application is in the background using InBackgroundMode.
  • If an application needs to interact with the user while it is in the background, the solution is to display a notification (via the Notification type). The application will be brought back to the foreground when the notification is clicked, if the ActivateApplication property is set to True. You can also open a window from the procedure passed to the ActionClick property.
