Intel XDK - How do I remove status info from top of game?

  • Hi Everyone,

    I've been paining over this for days - I'm very close to be able to submit my app for approval (A Skyrocket Story http://johnwilliamevelyn.tumblr.com/askyrocketstory) but one thing is niggling at me:

    How do I remove the clock/battery status from the top of my game on IOS using XDK?

    The fullscreen tickbox results in true full screen on Android.

    But on iOS, despite the game filling the screen, the time and battery status etc still sit over the top of the screen, albeit with no backing.

    I've followed countless threads on here but there doesn't seem to be a definitive fix - at my wits end here

    has anyone managed to remove all status info from the top of their game in iOS using XDK?

    (please don't say tick full-screen in xdk as I've tried that )

    • sorry to bug you

      imaffett, but any ideas?

  • its from the export mode i think from construct 2 you have to export html5 and select "embed style"

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • imothep85 thank you for the suggestion - don't I need to use the Cordova export option in order to use plugins in XDK though?

  • I want to ask why yes Game Construct 2 is already so enter into Admob but his game does not appear the ad, please clue

  • nope robothousegames i use allways the same method >export>html5 > intelxdk>test>build>select your hardware>build>download, save your apk file

  • imothep85 ah ok, will give it a go!

    It does beg the question what difference is there between Cordova export and Html5 export in Construct2 then...

  • I have the exactly same problem ... As I have heard, you need to tick in Intel XDK, in Project Plugins "Status Bar". Some people say it helps, but I haven't given it a try yet.

  • grigrizljac Unfortunately I've tried adding the StatusBar plugin and writing the required javascript calls to hide the bar but XDK 'failed to install' the status bar plugin...or words to that effect.

    The only way to get my game compiling again was to remove the status bar plugin

    Hm, that sounds familiar ... Maybe I have tried it, too, and the build failed ...

    EDIT: just tried, and it failed.

    EDIT2: found a way that leads to a successful build. Besides StatusBar plugin, include File plugin.

    What do you think, Ashley, why can't we hide the iOS Status Bar? Or, maybe, imaffett?

  • thats wierd i have done a lot of test under android, and my game is allways full screen without the statut bar, it works when you export in html5 for intel xdk and embed.

  • imothep85 the problem is with iOS

    I can get it to work without any trouble on Android but iOS always has the battery/time etc at the top of the screen

  • maybe you can try this http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/974524 <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy"> or http://www.idev101.com/code/User_Interf ... usBar.html

  • Ohoho, it seems like I found* a way to include StatusBar plugin and the build succeeds!

    You have to add 2 plugins to Intel XDK: File and StatusBar. It seems like StatusBar (and some other plugins from that group) requires the File plugin.

    Hope this helps. I'll try if it removes the Status Bar ASAP.

    *I do not claim that I'm the first one to find this

  • Did it work? (I have the same problem.)
