Get PDF when online, Load local when offline

Hi All,

 

I'm trying to put together an app that basicly first checks wether it's connected to internet with if connection.connected and in case the connection is true i would like to download the pdf files to my device so when the user next time loads the app and he doesn't have internet he can still view the pdf files from local storage.

 

Would this even be possible or am i too hopeful ?

 

regards

Hi @gjeh ,

Getting the file to local storage is not the issue, the problem is then “pointing” at it in PowerApps and knowing the address to do this with the wide variety of devices and OS versions.

So far I've tried making a collection storing the base64 content of the files in sharepoint, but when trying to build up the files in my app i am faced with the error that the pdf file does not originate from an https connection.

therefore i am afraid to conclude that my wish is not achievable.
