Title: Check internet Action not working well on android
Post by: djaydino on April 23, 2015, 07:55:35 PM
Check internet does not seem to work very well on android device :

when i am offline from a fresh restart it gives offline correctly,
then i go online and start the game and it gives online correctly.

but then when i disconnect the internet and start the game again it still gives online as result... i tried editing the url, changed it to my own website, but gives the same result....

greetings,

Dino

Hi,

Where did you get this action?

 typically, you need to bypass the cache ( which is likely the issue), and so everytime you check, the url you use to access internet and check the  result must be different always.

this is done by appending a dummy url variable like &time=123123

where 123123 is the current time, and so you won't hit any caching issue.

Bye,

 Jean

this code works better for me.

Code: [Select]
try
{
//Dns.GetHostEntry("www.google.com");
using (var client = new WebClient())
{
using (var stream = client.OpenRead("http://www.google.com"))
{
Fsm.Event(internetIsOn);
}
}
Finish();
}
catch
{
Fsm.Event(internetIsOff);
Finish();
}
