I don't want the users to have the URL I'm running on the APP. Is it possible to show something else when the device is unable to connect to the home URL?

Have Kiosk Browser become the TopMost application after X amount of minutes of being the background.

This is useful for when you use the Android.openApplication('myapp') API call.

Hi

Is it somehow possible to deactivate the idle timeout while watching a video and reactivate it again. (In the settings or with JS)

Thanks in advance.


Best regards

The power / volume buttons can be used when the Password Prompt is on the screen (e.g. after 4 quick taps). This means even though they have been disabled in the settings, they still appear if that menu is up (and only when)... so volume etc can be changed.

We have created a workaround for the password box issue allowing the shutdown dialog which is in v2.0.31.

Potentially a very specific issue but reaching out in hope you'd consider adding it as a feature.

Would it be possible to incorporate a periodic check of network connectivity (either ping type to specific IP address or web page and in the event that no response is received that it resets the WiFi to trigger reconnection.

I appreciate you already have the page timeout feature but given the nature of the page we're displaying a lot of the content is dynamic (e.g. signalR) and so reloading the page would take the user back to the start again.

Thanks and great product by the way - A life saver for us!

Is there a way to limit the number of password attempts to 3?  Afterwards, prevent further password attempts for a while. ( 5 mins or a few hours?)

We our configured to have the home page reload on a 5 minute timer and is set to always reload. After we load a URL with an intent, the timeout does not reset. This sometimes results in the page reloading to the home page before a user has a chance to interact with the newly loaded url. It's my suggestion that this behavior is a bug and not anyone's expectations.

Hello,  My device comes with a physical keyboard.  But, it's lacking the 'Tab' key.  I was wondering if there's a way within this browser to map one of the physical keys to tab the focus around the screen?


Thanks.
