    I would like to know how you can change the background of the screen, not in the text box but the whole screen so that it's not white.  Thanks.

    Forget that not about background colour, there's a note about it on another tutorial that explains how to get it changed before anything else.  I've set up some text boxes without a main screen background on my home page... can I change the background of that without having to lose and redo the text boxes and button?

    Hi janakiram,

    Are you using the latest version of the AppFurnace Player? Also, what device and operating system are you running (e.g. iPhone 4, iOS7 )?

    Could you try create a new empty app and seeing if you can download that one please?

    No problem:

    Create a button and have the tapped function called "openPhone"

    Then in code:

    function openPhone() {
        af.openLinkInWebBrowser("tel:+44xxxxxxxxxx", true);
    }

    Hi janakiram,

    AppFurnace is designed for devices that run Android OS 2.3.3 or later (sometimes called Gingerbread) - so it won't be supported by Android 2.2

    how to add PDF documents to app....

    kieron

    Hi janakiram,

    You can't import documents into the file system - but you could link to them via the web using the ChildBrowser function. E.g.:

    af.childBrowser.showWebPage("http://URL_OF_YOUR_FILE.pdf");

    Which will open the file in a web browser - though you may want to test to see if this works as expected on different devices if you're planning on using documents other than PDFs.

    Hi luc.fortin,

    If you want scrollable content, you just need to use a Scroll Area widget, documented here: https://appfurnace.zendesk.com/entries/20557357-ScrollArea-widgets

    Thanks

    Hi janakiram,

    To add colours to different lines in RichText widgets you'll need to use CSS & HTML (which can sometimes throw up unexpected issues which we can't provide support for), I'd go for something like this:

    <style type="text/css">
    .facebook { color: blue; }
    </style>
    <p class="facebook">
    <a href="http://facebook.com">Facebook</a>
    </p>

    Hope that helps

    Completed my app, i want to publish my app..any suggestion from your side.

    Hi janakiram,

    Once you've tested your app online, we'd recommend testing your app using the AppFurnace Player app, on a range of devices you want to publish to (e.g. for an iPhone app, try to test on an iPhone 4 & 5). This isn't required, but it can be useful - especially for Android devices that can have a lot of different screen sizes and resolutions to deal with.

    But once you're happy, all you need to do is click the "Publish" button in the toolkit, and fill out the form. You can find more help in this article: https://appfurnace.zendesk.com/entries/22287388-How-do-I-publish-my-app-on-the-Apple-App-Store-or-Google-Market-

    Hi dd,

    I had to use Google translate, so let me know if this translated your question effectively:

    "What should I do to insert an image?"

    There's a step-by-step walkthrough of using files and images here: https://appfurnace.zendesk.com/entries/20516977-Tutorial-3-Using-Files

    The rest of the Tutorials should help get you started using AppFurnace.

    Also, could you please post any future questions in English? This helps make sure the majority of our users can follow the threads, if they find this topic helpful in future.

    Thanks
