  • Hi H,

    Here is the documentation on Metro style application cache:


    Did you follow this?  Did you make the necessary manifest file modifications?

  • Hi Jeff,
      I followed link.
      When I unplug the network cable,I can also show the web page. I just can't receive the message.

  • Hi H,

    OK I think I understand.  The cache is working fine but the event ('checking') is not firing for you correct?  I will see if I can duplicate the issue and investigate further here.

  • Hi H,

    I was about to start with the repro and realized your problem.  You have a spelling error.  If you enabled 1st chance exceptions in you js file you would have been informed of this when you hit this line.

    Change: addEventListen to: addEventListener in all cases.

  • Hi jeff,

        I am sorry that "addEventListen" is just a mistake when I wrote this question. I am sure it is "addEventListener" in my code. But it doesn't work. Does the event ('checking') firing in your code? And could you share your code?

        Thank you very much!

  • Hi H,

    I can use addEventListener in a page that is hosted in an iframe and in IE 10.  What is your specific scenario?  Are you trying to use it in your app html itself?

    Would you please post a very simple repro of the problem build from a basic blank app?

  • Hi Jeff,

        I want to use "iframe" to show the web page which supported offline storage in my metro app, and want to know whether this page is downloaded from the server or from local.

    <iframe id="content" src="http://offline.html"></iframe>

  • I misunderstand this API. Only the page at server can receive this event. Thank you for your help.
