iOS Question RE: How Detect User Tap on Notification


Licensed User
Hello, I'm trying to detect if a user tapped on a Firebase remote notification to raise the Application_RemoteNotification event, or not. The event is raised when the message is received, either after a tap on the notification (if app is in background or killed) or direct if the app is open. I need to know if the user tapped a notification or not.

I've seen a previous thread about this, and the suggested solutions do not work. Adding flags to the _background and _active events does not work if the app has been killed, only if it was in the background.

Anyone have any ideas?

Try this:
1. Add a global boolean variable named ForegroundFlag.
Private Sub Application_RemoteNotification (Message As Map, CompletionHandler As CompletionHandler)
    If ForegroundFlag = False Then
        Log("Notification clicked")
    End If
    Log($"Message arrived: ${Message}"$)
    Msgbox(Message, "Push message!")
End Sub

Private Sub Application_Active
    fm.FCMConnect 'should be called from Application_Active
    ForegroundFlag = True
End Sub

Private Sub Application_Background
    fm.FCMDisconnect 'should be called from Application_Background
    ForegroundFlag = False
End Sub
