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?

Kiosk Browser back as topmost application

User309 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 2

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.

Bug: power / volume buttons are usable when password popup on screen

User743 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 5

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.

Support for android.provider.Settings

XoxInd 3 weeks ago in Application • updated by Richard 3 weeks ago 3

Greetings!


The tablets we are shipping as control panels for our tools are locked to your Kiosk Browser. But we want to give the users the possibility to change the system's date and time settings.

The Javascript Interface you provide comes in handy to open the general settings via the command:

Android.openApplication('com.android.settings');


But I would prefer to open the date and time settings directly, as I can do with the WiFi settings via the command:

Android.openWIFISettings(requirepassword);

Does the Javascript Interface supports the 'android.provider.Settings' constants used in native Java application to accomplish what i described?

60 seconds

User330 4 weeks ago in Application • updated by Richard 4 weeks ago 4

Hi, it seems that every 60 seconds, our page refreshes and it is visible on the kiosk, because it tries to dynamically fit the page back to the right size or something. So when kiosk is on home screen, every 60 seconds you see the page refreshing. 


We have idle page timeout settings on 9 minutes. Any idea what could trigger this?


Thx!

It would be nice to have the ability to add multiple videos as screen savers. Currently it's only possible to show one video.


Thanks

Can I add a clock to the Title Bar?

Andrew S 3 months ago in Application • updated by Andrew 3 months ago 2

Having the time would be extremely useful considering we are using this software for a cloud based timeclock solution. Ideally down to the seconds but even just hr:min would be acceptable.
