    I am having similar issues to Desof post #16 in original thread - which does not appear to have been answered.

    I use the same B4a code as originally posted under FirebaseRemoteConfig, I have copied Manifest from the original B4a page, I have set up Remote Config for the app in Firebase.

    When I try to run on a real device i get the same "loading_phrase" before "fetching" as I do after "fetching". Then when I change the value in Firebase to yet another value it still doesn't change the response.

    This occurs after the Fetch is said to be a "Success".

    When testing the problem, I found the original phrase didn't change either - so I deleted the whole app and reloaded, At that point I could change the original loading phrase - again the same before and after the "fetch".

    I have tried both the FirebaseRemoteConfig and RemoteConfig libraries.

    I have attached the code I have used, the Manifest page from B4a, and the Filtered Log [my unfiltered logs are full of processes occurring on my tablet]..

    Can someone please assist me with:

    a] how to overcome this problem;

    b] if I wanted to load several values from Firebase at the same time how can that be achieved?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    I am aware that in the example I posted I have used getValue in lieu of getString. Neither approach worked for me.

    This is NOT the correct way. What if I would like to try the project to help?
    Do you really expect me to create a new project from it (from the PDF)??

    If you want to show the project using then you should use File->Export as zip from the IDE and upload this ZIP here.

    Another way is to use the code tags and posting all relevant code

    This time i´ll not ignore this request

    Do you have configured RemoteConfig in Firebase correctly?


    Add more Values in the config...


    Note that you TTL value is relevant.
    You´ll get new values after the time is over. to test you can use 0 but that is not the expected value...
    With a ttl of 0 you always request online values.
    Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    "promo_code""""loading_phrase""Hallo world!"))
    End Sub

    Sub Activity_Resume
    End Sub
    Sub Activity_Pause (UserClosed As Boolean)
    End Sub

    Sub Config_onFetchComplete(success As Boolean)
    If success Then
    Log("Activate fetched values")
    Dim info As RemoteConfigValue = cfg.getValue("loading_phrase")
    Log($"Loading phrase info: Source ${info.Source}, ${info.asString}"$)

    Dim info As RemoteConfigValue = cfg.getValue("promo_code")
    Log($"Promocode info: Source ${info.Source}, ${info.asString}"$)

    End If
    End Sub
