Windows8 Exported Issues

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Just to let you guys know, the export works perfectly up to R123.

With R124 the Back button and any Hyper links fail to work as expected.
If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

@michael good find. I was just about to investigate after realising it used to work in an older build. Also it works fine as-is on touch devices.

@michael can you test on a basic project that doesn't use the mouse object?

@Ashley, here is the info I posted in other thread as requested:

....

I agree it is minor - to a degree.

It is annoying, yes, when the panel closes when clicking the back button.

But as stated, it is more than that, because it does stop the user accessing options presented to them. If they click any hyper links they don't work - it just closes the Charms and does nothing else, which is not good from a PR perspective - imagine an average end user clicking a link to send an email for support and it does nothing, what would they conclude from that?

I am thinking that it may not be the plugin that is at fault.

This morning I did a few install\uninstalls of C2 and found that up until r123 the Win8 Export works perfectly, including any hyper links - however with the release of R124 and all iterations after, the export no longer functions as intended.

This would seam to indicate that the plugin is not at fault here, something was introduced\changed in R124 that has broken both Scirra and iunkin's win8 objects.

There are a number of apps in the store built with C2, Mortar Melon, Battleship Islands, Ballo, Blast The Bricks, to name a few, that also illustrate that the plugins do work (the back button and any hyperlinks all function as expected), but these were built with versions prior to at least r119 I believe. This would seam to indicate that it is not Windows8 causing the issue.

So hopefully all this gives you a starting point to know where to look for a possible solution - start with what was added\changed in R124 that could be causing the issue....

@thehen,

OK, I tried simple project, removed the mouse object and exported it, added a couple hyper links to support page, but still exact same issue.

Oh man don't you hate that, just when you think you might be onto something...

That is using R126 by the way....

Another thing I notice when playing around is if you open the charms and select Permissions, then the Back arrow, is does go back to the Settings page.

A little more info,

I know that third party plugins are not Scirra's problem, but I though it still might give some clues to go on...                   

On any of the panels except Permissions and Settings:

With both Scirra's and iunkin's:
Click any hyperlink - the Charms will close
Click anywhere on a blank area - the Charms will close
Click the Back button - the Charms will close

With other options available in iunkin's:
Click the Upgrade, or Reset buttons - The Charms will Close
Click either of the Audio sliders - The Charms Does Not close - but the the command is ignored
If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

Thanks for narrowing it down to breaking in r124, I was able to spot a change that could have affected it. Should now be fixed for the next build.
