The Featured Discussion Board Post this week is Launching browser with platformRequest() loads a different version of the page by cadlg.
The thread asked why the page rendered differently when opening a particular URL manually, using a HTML control, or using
platformRequest() (and why this wasn’t the same for all devices). While user-agent headers were part of the answer, Traud explained that the main cause of the varying behaviour for
platformRequest() on different devices was due to multiple and different browsers across the range of devices.
We selected this question because it provides insight to the series 40 browser “story” and highlights the possible pitfalls when using platformRequest to open a URL.
Keep those interesting questions coming!
