Send push notification: Behaviour of parameters when App is still running in the background

Hi,

 

as far as I know I can use parameters from an push-notification in this way:

 

Param("ParameterName")

 

That works fine if the App was closed and is started by clicking on the notification.

 

But is there also a way to make use of the parameters if the app is still running in the background?

 

Thanks

Lukas

Hi @Lukas1 ,

No - parameters are "pushed" to the App in the opening URL, so nothing can be sent to it while open. One workaround would be to send the parameter to a field in a data source connected to the app and then LookUp the data source when you want to test for its presence. A one-record list would do the job.
