4.10 Logging


Liquid UI for Android offers a logging option under App Settings in Android. This option enables users to save log files and send an email to Synactive for debugging. Logs will be saved in the Applications directory on the device and are saved in a TXT format:

Functionality

The way logging functions is as follows:

  1. When you TURN TRACE ON, an empty logfile will be created on the device.
  2. All data is written to this single logfile until the file reaches one megabyte.
  3. When the orginal file reaches one megabyte, it will be converted to a backup file and a new empty logfile will be created.
  4. Once the second file reaches one megabyte, the existing backup will be deleted, the current file will be converted to a backup and a new empty logfile will be created.

Note: Only two log files may exist on the device at one time - one backup and one current log.
