    I didn't see this anywhere..But for rssView_ItemClicked, can we do more than just grab the URL? Can we grab things like GUID, Title, Author or even a custom field? If so, how? If not, is this planned? Thanks!


    EDIT: I was also curious if we can limit how many news articles are displayed and if there was a way to do a next and previous page if that were the case. The last request/question I had on this was if there are ways to sort how the RSS news feed is presented. If these features are unavailable, I would like to make a formal request for them. A donation will be coming your way within the next day or two. Thank you NJDude!

    The _ItemClicked event only passes the URL of the RSS article which is in the RSS feed itself, what you are asking is not possible. Regarding the number of articles displayed and pagination, you could handle that yourself, the RSSView just displays the feed as is, the features you're requesting are more towards a RSS reader which this library is not.

    If you want to parse an online RSS you only need:
    rssView.Initialize(Activity, Me, "rssView"44dip100%y - 0dip)
    You don't have to download it.

    NJDUde the library is used to an online RSS parse .
    But I need to download the XML file. If a person is offline it can read RSS.
    I have downloaded the problem. If you use the code to download the module and RSS view are reset when you access a new view.
    Example, accsses the view to read RSS, after access teh view contacts. The view RSS overrides the contacts.
    Sorry, can't post the project because it is for corporate / company.
    Please, look my log:


    I need to solve this problem just to finish the project .

    NJDUde, thanks for the feedback.

    The information you posted is not telling me anything, however, for what you just mentioned, if you want to show an RSS even if offline then you should:

    1- Check for internet connection.
    2- If connected then download and parse.
    3- if not connected then parse the previously downloaded RSS.


    1- Check for internet connection.
    2- If connected then download and parse.
    3- If not connected then display a message to connect to the internet or try later.

    I hope that helps.
