How to reopen a mobile app which is running in background

Post by druiz » Thu Sep 04, 2014 5:52 am

Hello

I'm trying to check the status of my app when a user launch it while it is in background.

My problem is that every time that I use Host.Local.RunMobileApp("...","...") it kills the app in Background and start a new instance but in my case, I need it to bring the app back from the background, not to start a new one...

I have found that we can display applications that are minimized in a Desktop environment using Host.Local.ActivateWindowsApp("...") and I was wondering if there is something similar to it for Mobile Devices.

Thanks in advance

David

Hi David,

Unfortunately this is currently not possible, but this feature is already planned.

Unfortunately I cannot give you a time frame when this will be released.

Thank you for your patience.

Regards,
Markus (S)
