Connection detection

Post by MrWizard. » Sun Mar 16, 2014 8:35 am

Hello

Is there a way to detect the connection type from a lc iPhone app?

I want to be cost conscious and have my app do light weight transfer when cellular connected deferring heavy transfers to wifi connected sessions.

It would be great to have a function to query the current connection type. Even better to have a trigger event to fire as the connection moves into and outof wifi connectivity

Thoughts?

Yes, you can. Read the LiveCode iOS release notes and look for "Network reachability". If you have any questions after checking there feel free to ask here :)

Where would this information be found today? In the download release notes for LC8?

Hi ctflatt,
Look in the dictionary for "reachabilityChanged"

Simon,

Thank you for the reference.

Is this an iOS only feature, or is there an Android equivalent?

Many thanks.
