    Hello everyone.
    Here is new build of 2.3.7 with a new "Custom Button" feature.
    With this new feature you can assign to execute native code for iOS or Android.
    This is especially helpful when you trying to revoke GDPR consent.

    So how it this works.
    1. Create a new Navigation Button and name it properly
    2. Choose 'Custom' from function drop down menu
    [​IMG]

    This is pretty much it.

    Now inside AdIntegrator.mm file you will have two more methods:
    Code:
    -(void)buttonActivated:(NSString*) name{
    
    }
    
    -(bool)buttonVisible:(NSString*)name{
        return false;
    }
    buttonActivated will be triggered every time you hit that button.
    buttonVisible you need to return true/false in order to keep this button visible or hide it

    BUILD:
    MAC: http://download.buildbox.com/buildb...3.7-2289_0040c3bdb251cb6194a9555709ae05d4.zip
    WIN: http://download.buildbox.com/buildb...3.7-2289_200ac92de990d5d0f7302c77e3c679c0.exe

    GDPR implementation.
    The logic here is simple. First you need to ask MoPub GPDR framework or other system if you need to show that button at all. In other words how revoke button if you have consent. That is where buttonVisible method will be handy for you.
    Then if user pressed a button you just simply call revokeConsent.

    That's it

    If you have any questions feel free to ping me privately.

    PS. this feature only works for iOS. After testing we will bring this to Android too.

    @NikRudenko is this the final release of 2.3.7 or just an interim build to get GDPR out the door?

    So I guess we can ignore other bug(fixes), right? Because I just tested the cooldown feature and it seems it's actually worse than in the previous beta #2241. If not, just a heads up... cheers.

    Hey @NikRudenko,

    This happened on older builds but if you use a large amount of objects/scene and you move in between scenes using portals than behind you there are just a few objects that get deleted not all of them. It seems that we have a limit of 250 or so objects that got deleted. This is an issue if you are building a "stage"/scene with small tiles like 8x8 or 16x16.


    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Launch the app and import small png 16x16 for a swipe like game
    2. Create a level on first scene (start scene) with at least 250 tiles (you can make a box and another box inside it and so on so you can see the limit
    3. Duplicate the scene and use a portal to switch in between them
    4. Swipe back to reach the "start screen"
    5. Observe that the first level is not fully cleaned up no matter how much you set the back detection trashold option
    And it's good to mention that multiple object on the screen lowers the game performance on physical devices like a lot, on computer everything seems to look good

    You can add Admob Rewarded Videos using the Custom option and the AdIntegrator class.
    If you're stuck, follow the MoPub tutorial and then when you have that working, look at the Admob guide and you should be able to replace Mopub with Admob.

    Hi @NikRudenko I don't see a custom function option in navigation button even after updating the software to 2.3.7, do you know why this is happening ?
    There is nothing below exit function for me , unlike the screenshot you have posted.
    Thanks

    Sorry my bad, I downloaded the wrong beta version of Buildbox 2.3.7 . Thanks for this custom function @NikRudenko by the way.
    But I still have one more question what to do for Android , how to add a revoke consent button for android as well.
    GDPR was implemented a long time ago but buildbox still does not has revoke consent button in built.
    Also for Buildbox 3 what to do there is no button to revoke consent in it as well.

    The problem is you have an extra space in your line of code. is EqualToString should be isEqualToString
