Offline

This Screenlet supports offline mode so it can function without a network connection. For more information on how offline mode works, see the tutorial on its architecture. Here are the offline mode policies that you can use with this Screenlet:

PolicyWhat happensWhen to use
remote-onlyThe Screenlet sends the data to the Liferay instance. If a connection issue occurs, the Screenlet uses the listener to notify the developer about the error. If the Screenlet successfully sends the data, it also stores it in the local cache.Use this policy when you always need to send updated data, and send nothing when there’s no connection.
cache-onlyThe Screenlet sends the data to the local cache. If an error occurs, the Screenlet uses the listener to notify the developer.Use this policy when you always need to store local data without sending remote information under any circumstance.
remote-firstThe Screenlet sends the data to the Liferay instance. If this succeeds, the Screenlet also stores the data in the local cache. If a connection issue occurs, the Screenlet stores the data to the local cache and sends it to the Liferay instance when the connection is restored. If an error occurs, the Screenlet uses the listener to notify the developer.Use this policy to send the most recent version of the data when connected, and store the data for later synchronization when there’s no connection.
cache-firstThe Screenlet sends the data to the local cache, then sends it to the Liferay instance. If sending the data to the Liferay instance fails, the Screenlet still stores the data locally and then notifies the developer about any errors that occur (including connectivity errors).Use this policy to save bandwidth and store local (but possibly outdated) data.

  • classPK

Attributes

Delegate

Comment Add Screenlet delegates some events to an object that conforms to the CommentAddScreenletDelegate protocol. This protocol lets you implement the following methods:

  • - screenlet:onCommentAdded:: Called when the Screenlet adds a comment.

  • - screenlet:onAddCommentError:: Called when an error occurs while adding a comment. The NSError object describes the error.

  • - screenlet:onCommentUpdated:: Called when the Screenlet prepares a comment for update.

  • - screenlet:onUpdateCommentError:: Called when an error occurs while updating a comment. The NSError object describes the error.
