Support for "capture" attribute of HTML input type="file"

CSnet 6 months ago in Application • updated 6 months ago 5

The following HTML is from page source of a client rendered by an ASP.NET server:

<input type="file" name="ctl00$MainContent$fileUpload" id="ctl00_MainContent_fileUpload" accept="image/*" capture onchange="pictureSelected()" style="display:none;" />

When this hidden control receives a click event via a visible button, both Chrome and Kiosk Browser allow uploading an image from the camera.

In Chrome, the click immediately opens the camera full screen.

In Kiosk Browser, the Android dialog to select an image source appears, with icons for the camera and other apps that contain images.  After a tap on the camera icon, the rest of the photo capture experience is the same as under Chrome.

Note that Kiosk Browser does appear to support the "accept" attribute in this situation because only sources of images are available on the dialog.  Chrome further apparently supports the "capture" attribute to go directly to the camera.

If possible, it would be great if we could skip the image source dialog and go directly to the camera under Kiosk Browser.

URL Not Saving

paul3252 6 months ago in Application • updated by Richard 6 months ago 5

For a couple of years the tablet (Samnsung Note 10.1) has been using a URL for the homepage. I have now changed the url, but it appears to not be saving. When the tablet turns off and comes back on the old URL is still present and not the new one. I have to keep re-entering the settings, change to new URL until a restart and then have to change over again. Any ideas how/why URL setting is not saving?

multi device reporting

Would it be possible to create a report that allows you to select multiple devices and show the status for each - even just single data status.  For example I have over 100 devices with a client and i have to report each week on how many are switched off and for how long they have been off.

Reload home URL when using power button to turn screen on?

CSnet 7 months ago in Application • updated by Richard 7 months ago 10

I have not found a setting in General or Connectivity that will reload the home URL whenever the user turns the Samsung Tab Active display back on by using the power button. The content of my home URL page changes during the day, and i need to see the up to date page immediately, before interacting with it.

Android - Settings - Display - Screen Timeout is set to 2 minutes. Kiosk Browser Settings are General - Idle Page Timeout 1 minute enabled and Always Reload enabled, Connectivity - Reload home Page enabled and Reset WiFi enabled.  

Is there a setting that will reload the page whenever the power button is used to turn the display back on?


Create custom error page for HTTP 4xx and 5xx response codes

User2883 7 months ago • updated by Richard 6 months ago 3

Hi. When loading the homepage our backend-website sometimes respond back with 4xx or 5xx and displays an error page that is not mobile-friendly. We would like to replace it with a custom error page instead. Preferable the same error page we use for custom error page. Could you add this as an new feature?

Might be nice to be able specify which HTTP codes to show different pages. Alternatively any HTTP-code that is not 2xx should show an error page.

Video controls

Brian Smith 8 months ago in Application • updated by Richard 7 months ago 2

I'm trying to link and play Youtube videos through KB, but am pretty disappointed in the layout. The standard webview player controls are pretty tiny for my kiosk tablet, which makes it difficult for students to move through the video. It also autoloads CC, which I do not want (the Youtube autogenerated CC is way off and confusing). I've tried playing around with the CSS and the iFrame settings in an attempt to fix this, but nothing seems to work.

Are there any ways to change the default controls/settings for your video player?
