[URGENT] full screen mode in Android
« on: November 04, 2014, 02:17:15 PM »
The gull screen mode should be implemented as soon as possible as it is really important feature for the android device signage.

Starting Kitkat, Google added "Immersive mode"  (developer.android.com/training/system-ui/immersive.html) which is totally a full screen mode. Please add this feature in the next update

many devices can't go full screen without  rooting.
that is one of the reasons we sell our mediaDROIDs with special basked OS.

At this moment the player needs android 4.2.2. Are there any plans to upgrade to Kitkat? If so, what will happen with the players currently running 4.2.2?

@9tontruck: if you root your player, use the full!screen app. It does the job perfectly.

I know most android devices can't go full screen mode without root. But Like I said above, Kitkat has that feature. Any many people will have kitkat devices soon. Just see below code:

   public void setImmersiveMode() {
      if (android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= android.os.Build.VERSION_CODES.KITKAT) {
         getWindow().getDecorView()
            .setSystemUiVisibility(View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_LAYOUT_FULLSCREEN
                    | View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_HIDE_NAVIGATION
                    | View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_FULLSCREEN
                    | View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_IMMERSIVE_STICKY);
       }
   }

It simply put the screen on full screen "if the device's version is kitkat". How simple it is :D
Please discuss with your team about it and add this code please.

Can you clarify that the mediaDROIDs can autostart the player on boot up and go full screen automatically?

Subsequent to my post above I found a solution for my Android device and player to go full screen automatically which is to get the "Hide System Bar" app and also the Autostart app from Google Play (both free) and this starts the player in full screen mode on MK809IV Android mini PC (not rooted).

Worth mentioning this to the guys on support chat to advise others who might experience this.

This is something that I urgently agree with and would like to see implemented.

Is no one else having this issue on an Android device, other then the devices sold by digital signage .com?
