Auto reconnect to network

User1324 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 1

Hi there,


Is there a setting we can switch on or a function we can call which gets kiosk browser to check for a network connection (either WiFi or lan) if it is disconnected, and then reconnect?


Thanks

Liz

Viewport offset and unusable border

Tenbob 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 3

Hi. I'm a new user of the Pro version and I'm very pleased with the results so far.


I am using full-screen immersive mode on a 10 inch iRULU tablet. But there's a problem with the display which shows a white border about 30px wide at the top and left hand side. This only happens with the browser window. The toolbar goes right to the edges of the screen when it is visible. Other apps are able to use the whole screen without any problem.


Viewportsizes.com reports my viewport size as 1024 x 600. But I'm only able to use about 964 x 558 if I want to keep the display centred. And then there's an annoying white border around everything. Any idea what might be wrong?

Android Sleep settings always resets itself

scuser1 2 years ago in Application • updated 2 years ago 4

My Android sleep settings keeps on resetting itself. I set it to 'Never' sleep but seems to return to 1 minute sleep. Could Kiosk Browser be causing this? Kiosk Browser is set to power off & on the tablet every day and has its own screensaver and idle page timeout set.


I'm using Kiosk broswer software on a Lenovo A10-70F tablet running Android 5.0.1


Thanks

Kiosk Browser can't run without Google Play update?

User1324 2 years ago in Application • updated 2 years ago 6

Hi,


We are having an issue with on-site devices which are displaying a message “Kiosk Browser won’t run unless you update Google Play services”.


Are the two interlinked and can we not turn off Google Play auto update without bringing down all of the devices?


Please let m know how to correct.


Thanks

Liz

Alternative Homepage URLs for Wifi and Celluar

James Sampford 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 1

Be able to specify different URLs depending on how the device is connect - may need to provide a prompt when one connection is lost if to switch connections.

This may allow deployers of Kiosk Browser to offer up a lightweight alternative when using cellular connections to save on bandwidth

Regarding the javascript functions for keyboard

User871 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 9

I've been working with the keyboard functions lately and found an oddity:


- Android.showKeyboard() actually toggles visibility of the keyboard if called repeatedly

- (Android.hideKeyboard() works as expected)


I suggest to make the showKeyboard only show the keyboard, as its name says. In addition it would be very nice to have a keyboardIsShowing function, just returning a true or false. (And perhaps a toggleKeyboard function would also be nice to have.)

Hi

You will need to factory reset by first powering off the device by holding the power button for at least 30 seconds. Then factory reset the device according to the manufacturers hard reset instructions. There are no backdoors as this is a security risk.

Local Storage

User1027 2 years ago in Application • updated 2 years ago 2

Is it possible to access the local content files (/storage/0/emulated/kioskbrowser/localcontent/) files from within a 'web page'? As far as I'm aware, not possible - tried file:/// followed by the path, but doesn't seem to work


Would it also be possible for you to enable LocalStorage (I believe it is `settings.setDomStorageEnabled(true);` within Android coding side of things) - so can create own caching of CSS/JavaScript files within LocalStorage to ensure that pages requested are always fresh, but not cached, whilst also saving on bandwidth/time?

Log of URLs visited

James Sampford 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 2

Would it be possible to add an Apache-style log file to the app, saved on the device, so the log can be analysed from time to time to see exactly what URLs/pages have been visited? This may prove invaluable for different use cases.


May be good to save to file by day, as opposed to one big file, whilst having the option to auto-purge log files older than X days/weeks/months old.
