Add soundName parameter to mobileCreateLocalNotification

Post by doobox » Sat Jul 06, 2013 12:12 am

Hi there,

Please consider add this parameter "soundName" to the mobileCreateLocalNotification function.

It is available in UILocalNotification Class

Use case :

Alarm clock.
Create 10 local notifications at 30 second intervals, containing a 30 second sound file.
Result, an alarm will play for up to 5 mins if unattended. (when app is not open).
Kind Regards
Gary

Any news on this request?

The possibility to set different sounds for local notification is crucial for the functionality of the app I'm creating.
After extensive searching on how to do it I realise it doesn't seem possible (with LiveCode). To my horror this seems to be road's end - an unanswered feature request... :(

It doesn't seem such a big deal to add this feature to mobileCreateLocalNotification (even if, understandably, it isn't top priority for most users)...?

Thanks!

Feature requests go to the bug reporter under "enhancement requests" at quality.livecode.com. While the team may monitor the forums, it is not a tool they use to build a to do list.

Thanks Mikey! I see now that it is indeed reported there as well: id=11038 (I can't post a link here, apparently).
It has status "confirmed", as of 2013-07-23. Does that indicate it's on anyone's to do list...?

Nope, it means they are aware of it. Add yourself to the "CC" list to auto-ping them. I have had several push nags over the years. If I had a hunch, it would be that they will not press it because with infinite livecode we will (in theory) have the ability to add features ourselves.
