How to remove white border/bar that shows iPhone battery at top ionic v1 app?


#1

I am trying to migrate a IOS Cordova HTML5, JS project into Ionic v1.

I finally got it working, but there is a big white border at the very top html page that allows users to see the battery and other things on the iPhone.

The bar (shown below) causes a ton of aspect ratio and resolution problems and I need to get it out of the mix entirely.

This did not exist in my original IOS Cordova HTML5, JS project and i am guessing something in the Ionic v1 framework automatically provides this white bar at the top.

The problem is, this creates a ton of problems for my app and I need to completely eliminate it.

Inserting the following code does not eliminate this.

<ion-header no-border>

I made a test project that just contains some text to see if the white border/battery bar is there too and it is.

The sample code from the index.html is shown below. If I can solve the problem here, I can solve it for my actual project.

!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>

    <meta charset="utf-8">
 <!--   <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no, width=device-width"> -->
    <title>MyApp</title>

    <link rel="manifest" href="manifest.json">
    <link href="lib/ionic/css/ionic.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <link href="css/style.css" rel="stylesheet"> 

    <!-- ionic/angularjs js -->
	<script src="lib/ionic/js/ionic.bundle.js"></script>

    <!-- cordova script (this will be a 404 during development) -->
	<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="cordova.js"></script> 
 
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	// Wait for device API libraries to load
    //
    document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);
    // Cordova is ready
    //
    function onDeviceReady() {
     }
</script>
  </head>
  <body style="background-color: black" onLoad="onDeviceReady()">
</body>
</html>

And here is my Config.xml

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<widget id="local.app.my" ios-CFBundleVersion="0.0.1" version="0.0.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:cdv="http://cordova.apache.org/ns/1.0">

Any help, advice, or suggestions at how I can eliminate this top battery bar border area universally from within the config.xml and/or from within the index.html would be greatly appreciated.
