Facebook Share Popup Blocked in pointerdown Event


Recommended Posts


I am trying to use a FB Share Dialog in my Phaser 3 game, but i assume since the pointerdown does not just get called directly on mouse click, the Dialog gets blocked by the browser:

let someButton= this.add.sprite(200, 500, 'someButton', 0).setInteractive();
buttonLeaderboard.on('pointerdown', () => {
        method: 'share',
        href: 'https://mydomain.com'
}, this);

Does anyone have a solution for this, or for popups in general? Opening a new window would also be fine (using sharer.php instead), but that one gets blocked too:

window.open(url, windowName, [windowFeatures])

I'm literally working on some hacking solution for my project atm.
I'm thinking, instead of pointerdown, use pointerover/out to store some global `action` variable while it's rolled over. And before game boots add `document.addEventListener('click', function(event) { ... });` where you handle the stored action, if any.

Ok, if there is only a workaround/hack, i would just skip the Share Button for now. Maybe there is another event that fires immediately? Should not be too hard to implement with a separate event, i guess. I subscribed to your issue on Github, :) thanx for the answer and thanx for creating that issue!
