If it's ok I'll try to answer about the update here to keep the info available to others. If not I can move it to a separate thread.
Basically what you're looking for is the following:
To be informed when an internet connection is available:
- Look at the system event "eFunction.connectedToInternet". Sample code can be found in the link below at line 340.
To queue a background task:
- Look at "OpenMobile.Threading.TaskManager.QueueTask". Sample code can be found in the link below at line 249.
Link to code:
It might also be wise to separate your code into a dataprovider part and a skin part. This would allow multiple skins to use the data your plugin provides and not only the plugin you're creating now. But this is something that we can discuss later. Get your basics up an running first!
Also please follow the plugin guidelines as can be read here: http://openmobile.sourceforge.net/wi...ines-Technical
Again; Great work!
