android css rendering / shared content


Level 2


we have some problems with css-rendering and scroll behaviour within html-articles on android devices.

1.) articles are rendered different when style-sheets are referenced by shared content or within the

article itselfs.

debugging ( eg. gap-debug ) shows, that styles from shared-content are loaded correctly but will lead

to a different, quite broken article-layout.

in ios everything works fine.

2.) generally the layout for html-articles in your android-apps does not come to our web-designers expectations.

we have tested the article-layout in serveral external webview-apps/emulators and everything work fine, while the layout get`s

broken in your preflight-app.

so it`s very hard for us to reproduce where the error(s) is(are).

do you have some recommendations?

Have you ruled out versioning mismatches?  Like, maybe Android is pulling older versions of the shared resources?


Level 2

indeed, android is pulling older versions of the shared resources although the actual shared-resource is linked with the article-upload


on ios everything works as expected.


$sharedContUrl = $oDpsShared->getContentUrl();

$articleObj->linkSharedContent($sharedContUrl, 'shared');


we get arround this issue by placing a uniqe timestamp for each collection with the assets calls  ( e.g ../shared/main.css?1454662533 ).

this will cause android to deliver the latest shared-resource.
