Understanding offline-supported controls
Offline-enabled mobile apps support a specific set of controls. By learning about the available controls, you can ensure that your offline-enabled mobile app operates reliably.
When you design an application that users can access while offline, you use available controls from a predefined list. Offline-enabled mobile apps do not support the following features:
- Localization of property references
- Cascading of controls, except for drop-down lists that use parameterized data pages
- Offline-supported controls
Offline-enabled mobile apps only support a specific set of UI controls.
- Attach content support in offline mode
You can attach content to an offline-enabled application when you are not connected to the network. Specifically, while working in offline mode, you can attach any type of file from the device storage available from the device's native file picker component, for example, built-in image, video, or audio gallery. You can also attach content while working in offline from any mobile app that is installed on the device, for example, Audio Recorder or Camera.
- Packaging a signature after the work object is resolved
For offline-enabled applications, signatures are removed by default from the client store after the work object is resolved. If an offline-enabled application contains a Signature Capture control that must be packaged and previewed, the pyIsWorkSignatureRequired when rule for the @baseclass class must be set to true.
- Learning about guidelines for designing offline-enabled mobile apps
Ensure that your app operates reliably, regardless of the connection status, by adhering to the guidelines for designing offline-enabled mobile apps.
