Admob Installation

Post by Mark7294305 »

Hello Support
I am trying to install admob on my app. The followed Illya Stepanov 7 steps instructions on the post https://getsatisfaction.com/apperyio/... However when I build the apk file I receive the following failure

Build error

Most likely build error cause:

Admob Installation

Post by Serhii Kulibaba »

Hello Mark,

It is better to use cordova plugins for that. e.g.:
https://github.com/floatinghotpot/cor...
https://github.com/floatinghotpot/cor...

Please delete edited (blue colored) files on Source tab and click Undo all source changes on folder with edited files.

And install any admob plugin to your application: https://devcenter.appery.io/documenta...

Admob Installation

Post by Mark7294305 »

Hello Support
Thank you for your reply. I have undone the changes and imported the plugin as you instructed. Also I added the following to my Javascript file.

var admobid = {};

//alert(navigator.userAgent);

// select the right Ad Id according to platform
if( /(android)/i.test(navigator.userAgent) ) {
admobid = { // for Android
banner: 'ca-app-pub-xxx',
interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/1657046752'
};
alert ("andriod");
} else if(/(ipod|iphone|ipad)/i.test(navigator.userAgent)) {
admobid = { // for iOS
banner: 'ca-app-pub-xxx',
interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/7563979554'
};
alert ("ios");
} else {
admobid = { // for Windows Phone
banner: 'ca-app-pub-xxx',
interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/1355127956'
};
alert ("WP");
}

window.admob.createBannerView(
{
'publisherId': 'xxx',
'adSize': admob.AD_SIZE.BANNER
},
successCallback,
failureCallback
);

window.admob.requestAd(
{
'isTesting': false,
'extras': {
'color_bg': 'AAAAFF',
'color_bg_top': 'FFFFFF',
'color_border': 'FFFFFF',
'color_link': '000080',
'color_text': '808080',
'color_url': '008000'
},
},
successCallback,
failureCallback
);

function initApp() {
if (AdMob) {
AdMob.createBanner({
adId : admobid.banner,
position : AdMob.AD_POSITION.BOTTOM_CENTER,
autoShow : true
});
}
}

Code: Select all

 var successCreateBannerView = function() { alert("addBanner Success");  

window.admob.requestAd({'isTesting': true},success,error); };

var success = function() { alert("requestAd Success"); };

var error = function(message) { alert("Oopsie! " + message); };

var options = {
'publisherId': 'xxx',
'adSize': 'BANNER'
};
function initApp() {
window.admob.createBannerView(options,successCreateBannerView,error);

}

document.addEventListener('deviceready', initApp, false);

Then on device I have the following javascript

function initApp()

I exported the apk file onto a real device but no ads are displayed. How can I fix this?

Post by Mark7294305 »

Update:
I have through the docs and it says that I only need to add the following code to your project to activate the ads

var admobid = {};
if( /(android)/i.test(navigator.userAgent) ) {
admobid = { // for Android
banner: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/9375997553',
interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/1657046752'
};
} else if(/(ipod|iphone|ipad)/i.test(navigator.userAgent)) {
admobid = { // for iOS
banner: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/4806197152',
interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/7563979554'
};
} else {
admobid = { // for Windows Phone
banner: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/8878394753',
interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/1355127956'
};
}

if(( /(ipad|iphone|ipod|android|windows phone)/i.test(navigator.userAgent) )) {
document.addEventListener('deviceready', initApp, false);
} else {
initApp();
}

function initApp() {
if(AdMob) AdMob.createBanner( {
adId: admobid.banner,
position: AdMob.AD_POSITION.TOP_CENTER,
autoShow: true } );
}

I added the above code to my javascript file and exported to a device however no ads are displayed. When I run the appery web test I see the following error

Uncaught ReferenceError: AdMob is not defined

which is referring to the line "if(AdMob) AdMob.createBanner( {"

It seems that javascript cannot execute the imported pluggin

can you help?

Could you add JS file with AdMob object as a custom JS (Create new-JavaScript)

Admob Installation

Post by Mark7294305 »

Ok I figured it out. To help those who wish to add admob to their app without exporting to eclipse etc, here are the steps to follow:~

  1. import the plugin from github https://github.com/floatinghotpot/cor... to appery as explained here https://devcenter.appery.io/documenta...

    2.Create new-JavaScript (or open your existing one)

  2. add the following code to the file

    // place our admob ad unit id here
    var admobid = {};
    if( /(android)/i.test(navigator.userAgent) ) {
    admobid = { // for Android
    banner: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/9375997553',
    interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/1657046752'
    };
    } else if(/(ipod|iphone|ipad)/i.test(navigator.userAgent)) {
    admobid = { // for iOS
    banner: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/4806197152',
    interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/7563979554'
    };
    } else {
    admobid = { // for Windows Phone
    banner: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/8878394753',
    interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-6869992474017983/1355127956'
    };
    }

    function onDeviceReady() {
    if (! AdMob) { alert( 'admob plugin not ready' ); return; }

    initAd();

    // display a banner at startup
    createSelectedBanner();
    }

    function initAd(){
    AdMob.setOptions({
    // adSize: 'SMART_BANNER',
    // width: integer, // valid when set adSize 'CUSTOM'
    // height: integer, // valid when set adSize 'CUSTOM'
    position: AdMob.AD_POSITION.BOTTOM_CENTER,

    // offsetTopBar: false, // avoid overlapped by status bar, for iOS7+
    bgColor: 'black', // color name, or '#RRGGBB'
    // x: integer, // valid when set position to 0 / POS_XY
    // y: integer, // valid when set position to 0 / POS_XY
    isTesting: true, // set to true, to receiving test ad for testing purpose
    // autoShow: true // auto show interstitial ad when loaded, set to false if prepare/show
    });

    // new events, with variable to differentiate: adNetwork, adType, adEvent
    $(document).on('onAdFailLoad', function(data){
    alert('error: ' + data.error +
    ', reason: ' + data.reason +
    ', adNetwork:' + data.adNetwork +
    ', adType:' + data.adType +
    ', adEvent:' + data.adEvent); // adType: 'banner', 'interstitial', etc.
    });
    $(document).on('onAdLoaded', function(data){});
    $(document).on('onAdPresent', function(data){});
    $(document).on('onAdLeaveApp', function(data){});
    $(document).on('onAdDismiss', function(data){});

    function createSelectedBanner(){
    AdMob.createBanner({
    adId: admobid.banner,
    overlap: $('#overlap').is(':checked'),
    offsetTopBar: $('#offsetTopBar').is(':checked'),
    adSize: $('#adSize').val(),
    position: $('#adPosition').val(),
    });
    }

    function showBannerAtPosition(){
    AdMob.showBanner( $('#adPosition').val() );
    }

    $('#btn_create').click(createSelectedBanner);
    $('#btn_remove').click(function(){
    AdMob.removeBanner();
    });

    $('#btn_show').click(showBannerAtPosition);
    $('#btn_hide').click(function(){
    AdMob.hideBanner();
    });

    // create a banner on startup
    createSelectedBanner();

    // test interstitial ad
    $('#btn_prepare').click(function(){
    AdMob.prepareInterstitial({
    adId:admobid.interstitial,
    autoShow: $('#autoshow').is(':checked'),
    });
    });

    $('#btn_showfull').click(function(){
    AdMob.showInterstitial();
    });

    // test case for #256, https://github.com/floatinghotpot/cor...
    $(document).on('backbutton', function(){
    if(window.confirm('Are you sure to quit?')) navigator.app.exitApp();
    });

    // test case #283, https://github.com/floatinghotpot/cor...
    $(document).on('resume', function(){
    AdMob.showInterstitial();
    });
    }

    // test the webview resized properly
    $(window).resize(function(){
    $('#textinfo').html('web view: ' + $(window).width() + " x " + $(window).height());
    });

    $(document).ready(function(){
    // on mobile device, we must wait the 'deviceready' event fired by cordova
    if(/(ipad|iphone|ipod|android|windows phone)/i.test(navigator.userAgent)) {
    document.addEventListener('deviceready', onDeviceReady, false);
    } else {
    onDeviceReady();
    }
    });

    4.Export project to a real device and your should see the test ads displayed

  3. You can then change the banner ID to your own and tweak any other settings

    Regards,

    Mark

Admob Installation

Post by Mark7294305 »

on your home page create an event on device ready to run a script and add the following code

window.admob.createBannerView (
{
'PublisherID': 'ca-app-pub-*****',
'AdSize': admob.AD_SIZE.BANNER
},
successCallback,
failureCallback
);

admob.requestAd(
{
'isTesting': false,
'extras': {
'color_bg': 'AAAAFF',
'color_bg_top': 'FFFFFF',
'color_border': 'FFFFFF',
'color_link': '000080',
'color_text': '808080',
'color_url': '008000'
},
},
successCallback,
failureCallback
);

Let me know if it works

Mark, Thanks for your answer.

I can not make it work.

Blocking the application. It stays charged.
