There’s a problem in the webview documentation (DEF-3394). The documentation shows the function webview.set_size(id, width, height). This function does not exist. The way to change size and position of a webview is like this:

webview.set_position(id, x, y, width, height)

Some documentation missing. New functionality (@sven and @Mathias_Westerdahl, correct me if I’m wrong).

In dmsdk/graphics/graphics_native.h:

In dmsdk/extension/extension.h:

 * Activity result callback function type. Monitors events from the main activity.
 * Used with RegisterOnActivityResultListener() and UnregisterOnActivityResultListener()
typedef void (*OnActivityResult)(void* env, void* activity, int32_t request_code, int32_t result_code, void* result);
 * Registers an activity result callback. Multiple listeners are allowed.
 * @note [icon:android] Only available on Android
 * @param [type:OnActivityResult] listener
void RegisterAndroidOnActivityResultListener(OnActivityResult listener);
 * Unregisters an activity result callback
 * @note [icon:android] Only available on Android
 * @param [type:OnActivityResult] listener
void UnregisterAndroidOnActivityResultListener(OnActivityResult listener);


Don’t know if it’s a coincidence, but after this upgrade build times are taking ages on OSX. Maybe it was another change on my project, not sure yet.

Apparently it was just the first time that took a long while. Now it seems fine! Sorry to bother.



If you use native extensions they need to be built once and then cached for the new version.



I seem to have lost console output upgrading from 1.2.133->1.2.134

(Image of both after each building app)
Previous version 1.2.133, still works. I am on Win7 x64 Platform.

Can you please try resizing the console pane? Also restarting? Try a new empty project with a script and a print in init().

It seems to be an issue with my current project, perhaps.

The console does work with an empty project, as a well as a few others that I have. But not this one…

Actually, I think I found something. I am declaring an App Manifest in game.project. If I remove the declaration of a custom manifest, the console works… :thinking:

Ah, you’re likely removing the debug version of the engine and always replacing it with the release version. A release version of the engine will not print anything to the console. This is the same as checking the Release checkbox of the Bundle dialog when building without any native extensions.



Yes. That sounds correct - and now I see and understand.

DEF-3383 - Fixed: Editor now builds custom engine if only an app manifest is specified.
