The good news is that you can already explore the main logic for initializing and handling the push notifications in hybrid WP8 apps and using Telerik Backend Services.
We have just released a new push sample app
. The app showcases the required configuration in order to integrate WP8 push notifications and Backend Services in a hybrid app built with AppBuilder.
The relevant WP8 code can be found in the push-registrar.js
file. Also, you will need to use the included everlive.all.min.js
file in your testing project.
The app can receive Raw, Toast
push notifications in WP8.
Each notification for WP, created from the UI portal will be a Toast by default.
In order to test the Tile
notifications for Windows Phone in a hybrid app, you can pin the app to the start menu and then send the following payload to the Backend Services REST API
Further, you can extend the payload according to the supported structure
The notable point here is that for Tile notifications your app needs to use a "TemplateFlip"
, specified and configured in the Windows Phone Manifest file.
We will be glad to hear your feedback on this. We will keep this thread posted when the next build is available.
Please, let us know if further questions arise.
