Storyline 3 - Launch player in a new window - PWA problem
In storyline 3, when we set the "Launch player in a new window" it usually works fine.
But when launching the content from a PWA (progressive web application) application it fails, and just opens a blank window.
Digging in the code, we saw that in launcher.html:LaunchContent the code detects the browser as Safari (even though the application is running under chrome in an Android device) and then the following lines fails:
var oWnd = window.open("", "_blank", strOptions);
oWnd.location = g_strStartPage;
adding a timeout between the two lines or using:
window.open(g_strStartPage , "_blank", strOptions);
fixes the problem.
Still we need here a more permanent solution here as our content creators aren't programmers.
attached a screenshot with the configurations we're using to export the content.
