Alrighty, a bit of knowledge seeking around this.
First, if I enable “The app can start when offline” the loading images indication in the menu goes away. I’m kind of confused on how that option and the “Store content for offline use” interact together, and what the intent is. Why can’t I start while offline, and still load the images when there is connectivity? I guess I’m just a little confused as to what is actually going on in the background.
Second, when I was set to see the loading images it needed to load 1116 images. I went into my data set and literally counted how many images with relative data paths my application had access to, and it was ~70 images. What is that about?
Third, Dynamic XY Background images don’t seem to load and function correctly when offline even when I wait for all 1116 images to load. I have a setup where we have a color background image and a grayscale version of that same image. We allow the user to toggle back and forth so that the Pin are well highlighted over grayscale, but they can switch to color when they need to zoom in and review the details of the drawing. This expression results in relative image path which is available in a basic image column on the parent to the pins. When we’re online and not thinking about this, everything works fine. When we load the app/images, and then switch to offline, nothing about the XY background functions well… What should I be expecting?
