Kiosk App dropping WiFi

David Farmer 1 year ago in Application • updated by Richard 12 months ago 14

We are running the Kiosk App on a number of Google Nexus tablets. The tablets connect to WiFi and are running a web fronted database. We have been finding an issue where the tablets seem to loose the WiFi connection every few minutes (approx. 6-10 minutes) but if we turn off the kiosk app and use the Chrome browser on the tablet it works OK. Can you think of any reason this is happening?

Hide keyboard

user57155 1 year ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 1

Is there a way to hide the keyboard popping when the user select an input field ?

Or, do you know a very simple keyboard (without suggestions, emojis...) ?

Thanks.

NFC and File Protocol Urls

James Howard 1 year ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 5

In the documentation it's suggested that file:// URLs should work with NFC. While I can get http:// URLs working fine, I can't seem to get file:// URLs to work. I'm using the path to the localstorage, which I'm pretty sure is correct because it's also used in the kiosk browser address:

file:///storage/emulated/0/kioskbrowser/localstorage/page2.html


I've tried with just file:// (2 slashes) too but neither work.


I get the message 'NFC Tag not supportedfile:///storage/emulated/0/kioskbrowser/localstorage/page2.html'

Javascript debugging

Liam 1 year ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 1

I can't access Webview debugging tools from Kiosk Browser. According to the android web view pages (https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/remote-debugging/webviews) I should be able to enable debugging by entering the URL chrome://inspect. Unfortunately doing this using Kiosk view changes it to http://Chrome//inspect and the debugging tools don't open. Can enabling debugging or allowing urls starting with chrome:// be enabled please?

PDF Embedded Inside of Frames (and redirects)

User2518 1 year ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 5

Is there any way to display a PDF that is embedded inside of a frame on a page? I have tried two sites that do this, and the page simply displays as blank.


Another site that has a "View PDF" button, appears to perform a javascript redirect of some-kind. As a result, instead of displaying the PDF, it displays the resulting HTML as plain-text.

Say a tablet that was licensed had failed. Will I need to buy another license to the replacement tablet or can I transfer it?

change browser

sruetzler@arigo-software.com 1 year ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 1

Hello,

I now today it isn't possible to change the used browser.

But it is possible to add this feature in future versions. We have no control about the devices which our customer will use and some of them are using older devices with older browsers.

Regards

Web app is not loading after reload

User2216 1 year ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 2

We have a problem with our single page application running inside Kiosk Browser.

It loads fine the first time, it usually loads fine second time, but for some reason it stops loading (probably JS scripts) after 3-5 reload. I tried to set cache setting to enable/disable and the only thing that fixes it is "Application restart" from remote dashboard or killing the app from inside the tablet and starting it again.


It's hard for me to debug which part of the app is the problem, because I couldn't find any info about console or console logs that I can check. Out single page app doesn't have this problem on regular mobile Chrome browser. We're using it on Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 with Android 6.0.1.


Is there anything that we can do to fix it?

Toolbar colour

Steve Short 1 year ago in Application • updated by Richard 1 year ago 2

Is there any way to enter a custom colour for the toolbar? I would like it to match the colour of the dashboard web app I am using.
