Pinned topic How to know available space in the device

‏2013-01-31T15:32:27Z |
Hi Team
Iam working with the files, Does Worklight / Cordova provides any feature to know the available space on the device (or SD card). Before i download the file i have to warn the user, whats the size of the PDF, and how free space he has in his device. Can you please help me out on this?

    Searching on StackOverflow, I found two approaches:

      Hi Idan, thanks for the reply, one post is written in native language of Android, the other one is not useful, its a incomplete post
      we are looking in either Worklight or phonegap, have you ever come across?

    Worklight does not provide such API, and I don't see a Cordova API for this either, however...
    The code being in Java is not a problem, because you can utilize it via a Cordova plug-in.

    Please see this training module, Android Development Using the Apache Cordova Plugin:
