MozActivityRequestHandler.postResult()

Non-standard
This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

This API is available on Firefox or Firefox OS for installed or higher privileged applications.

Summary

The postResult method is used to send back an answer to the app that made the activity request.

Syntax

instanceOfMozActivityRequestHandler.postResult(answer);

Properties

answer
A JavaScript object. Activities Handlers are free to send back any kind of object.

Warning: As there is no formal contract between apps about the type of object to pass as answer, app makers should carefully handle the object they send and retrieve through activities.

Specification

Web Activities is not part of any specification. However, it has some overlap with the proposed Web Intents specification. Mozilla actually proposed Web Activities as a counter proposal to Web Intents. For more information about this, see discussion on the Web Intents Task Force ML.
