Anomaly between Live Test Android and Live Test iOS

Dear Thunkable X folks,

I reached a stage in creating my app and decided to Live Test and see different results. Is it a Live Test bug or due to other reasons?

1(a) Live Test Android

    i) DrawerNavigator's drawer titles/labels are truncated
    ii) WebViewwer cannot scroll up/down (Foursquare website)

1(b) Downloaded Android APK to test

    Same results as 1(a) above.

2) Live Test iOS

No problems.
i) Drawer Navigator's drawer titles/labels are not truncated
ii) WebViewer is scrollable (Foursquare website)

Hi @Andrew_Chin - thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Can you share your project, either here or via PM, so we can take a closer look? Thanks!

Hi @domhnallohanlon

Thank you for your response. I have just PM the share app link to you.

BTW, I also experienced this while creating the app – each time I change something like Width or Height in the screens grouped under the Top Tab Navigator, all the image files *.png disappears from the Blocks … I have to add each of them back via the drop down arrow (in the Block).

(P/S: Sorry for my slow reply due to being in a different time zone.)

No worries, thanks for sharing Andrew.

I’ll take a look at this and report back to you when I find out more.

Hi Domhnall,

Any findings?

Hi Domhnall,

With reference to my 1st posting above, I summarize the 2 main issues found in Android as follows:-

  1. The DrawerNavigator’s drawer titles/labels are truncated (No problem in iOS).
  2. The external website (e.g. Foursquare) cannot scroll in the WebViewer (No problem in iOS).

I have discovered the cause/reason for No. 2.

For the contents of the WebViewer to be able to scroll, the Screen where the WebViewer is use, must not be scrollable or if the WebViewer is used inside a Column, the Column must not be scrollable. This bug only occurs in Android but not in iOS.

Please try this TestWebviewerScroll app

(i) Screen1 – WebViewer used in a Screen. Screen Scrollable = True but Screen cannot scroll but WebViewer can scroll but cut-off.

(ii) Screen2 – WebViewer used in a Column. Column Height = Fit Contents and Scrollable = True; WebViewer cannot scroll.

(iii) Screen3 appears to be the temporary solution to this bug i.e. by reducing sizes or spacing to fit all components within the Screen or the Column but may be a challenge to other app creators who may have more components (I’m testing on a 5.5" screen Android phone and still have to reduce the size of the Map and WebViewer). I also do not want to add another Screen just for the WebViewer.
