Menu bar on android device

Post by Turtle » Tue Jan 09, 2018 2:41 am

Hello,
my next question is about how to hide the menu bar on android devices. Well i could hide the status bar using the standalone settings, but i got a problem with the menu bar, which i tried to hide with this code

Code: Select all

 if the environment is "mobile" then
      mobileHideStatusBar
   end if
Then after i start to search some answers but no luck. I am testing on HTC desire 650.

Hi,
Not sure that is the problem but i read:
mobileHideStatusBar does not have any effect on any Android devices with "hardware buttons" embedded in the status bar. For example: "back, home and menu". On these devices, hiding the status bar would remove the buttons and prevent the user from exiting the application.
Best regards
Jean-Marc

What menubar do you mean? Android has a status bar at the top but no menubar per se.

I see, thanks. That's the navigation bar, and the info Jean-Marc posted is correct. LC doesn't let you hide that if the device has on-screen navigation icons.
