Hi all,

I just started to work on mobile with Icenium (really nice ;-)) and I wanted to use the kendo datasource to read&write datas to my existing SQL DB (through custom web services).

But what happens if the device is offline? I want to have the last downloaded datas displayed when the user closes the app and re-open it later when he is offline. Can I achieve that easily or I have to put in place a local storage? 

Thanks for your help.

Hello Bastien,

Glad you happy with Icenium, unfortunately Kendo DataSource do not have that out-of the box yet, and you have to implement some sort of local buffer and sync to server when online/offline (check this post).

As SQL developer you may want to check WebSQL it has limitation and was dropped from HTML5 specification, but is available on most mobile devices (according to this).

Happy New Year,
