been fiddling around with Ionic Framework for some time now and absolutely love it!
I came across a problem with the app I am currently making. I am deploying my application on an Archos tablet running Android 5.1.1. Since I want my application to be the only application the user can access on this device, I am trying to hide the StatusBar and ActionBar. I can hide these bars using one or more of the following commands, however they are not persistent.StatusBar.hide(); $cordovaStatusbar.hide()
These commands hide the StatusBar and ActionBar, when I swipe down (or up) on the top (or bottom) of my tablet, they reappear again. Since what I am looking for is similar to “Kiosk mode”, I also tried the following plugin https://github.com/honza889/cordova-plugin-kiosk , but again I can swipe to make the Action and StatusBar reappear. It seems this is hardcoded in the tablet I am using. There was another question about a similar topic on this forum Kiosk mode?, but the answer over there didn’t seem useful to me. (I tried, but could not get it to work).
Does anybody know a way to prevent the user from requesting the statusBar or actionBar, so that I can create a good Kiosk mode for my ionic app?
Thank you for your help
