      Hi there, I have been through all the documentation and code samples, however, when I call Ext.device.Push.register, I get no response at all.

      If I put this inside the controller init method:


      scope: this,

      'pushregistrationsuccess': this.onPushRegistrationSuccess,

      'pushregistrationfailure': this.onPushRegistrationFailure,

      'pushnotification': this.onPushNotification


       ...then inside launch()


      appKey: 'xxxx',

      appUrl: 'xxxx.azure-mobile.net',

      pushConfig : {

      windowsphone : 'channel_name',

      android : 'sender_id',

      ios : true



      I get no response at all.  I have defined, the push registration success and failure methods on the controller as:

      onPushRegistrationSuccess: function (event) {

      alert("onPushRegistrationSuccess: " + event);


      onPushNotification: function (event) {

      Ext.Msg.alert('Notification', event.message);



      I'm trying to get push registration to work in a Windows Phone Sencha app. Pls let me know if Windows Phone is not supported? I'm going insane. Thanks.
