Custom URL Arguments


I've added a custom URL scheme to my iPhone app's info.plist (as per http://developer.appcelerator.com/question/11181/launching-your-own-application-via-a-custom-url-scheme) but I'm having a problem when passing in arguments with the URL call.

When the "resume" event fires in my app I check for any arguments in the url and, if any exist, I perform the appropriate action. This is great is someone is opening the app from a link in an email or on a website. However, the arguments don't seem to clear once I've opened the app, so if I multitask out then back into the app the arguments are passed back in (ie. the same actions occur every time I re-open the app after opening it via my custom URL). I can obviously get around this by killing the app, but this isn't a solution rather just a work around.

Does anyone know a way to clear the arguments passed to the app? Does anything like Titanium.App.clearArguments() exists?

  • Hi MIchael,

    DO you mind to share your code in how do you get the arguments from a call using a CustomURLHandle?

    I don't know why, but my code is not working anymore.

  • Anyone have a code sample they care to share to achieve this? I am currently looking for a sample so I can experiment with this…..please?
