Hi:

I want to regularly query a feature service to see if there are any updates to the features. And I want to run this query when the app is in the background. The Qml Timer object with an interval set only appears to work in AppStudio Player when the app is active. How can I get this to work in the background? Should I be looking at a different approach?

Thanks,

Matt English

Hi Matt English,

Currently, running a timer in background is not supported on mobile platforms. It requires changes in Qt Framework.
