After the player names his character, I have some part of the Android software overlay staying visible until they are manually turned off.
Any idea how to get rid of this?
Thanks in advance! :)
Have you tried requesting fullscreen again? The most fail-safe solution would be creating your own on-screen keyboard as described in this tutorial:
Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't try to ask for fullscreen again, so I'll try this first.
Setting the game in fullscreen again doesn't work. :(
Any other solution which wouldn't need me to change the keyboard system?
Try cancelling fullscreen, and then requesting it again (maybe with a short delay between two actions). I don't have any other ideas..
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Thanks, but if that means the game will not be fullscreen during the time where the name is selected, it will look very unprofessional, so this isn't an option.
No, I meant to do this after the name is entered. Cancel fullscreen, wait 0, then request fullscreen. At the same time the keyboard will disappear from the screen, so maybe it will not be very noticeable.
Oh sorry, I misunderstood the idea. That's worth a try. :)
Not working either. :(
Has someone already had this bug and found a solution?
I can reproduce with only a TextInput.
It looks looks like there is a problem with old? cordova status bar plugins. stackoverflow.com/questions/36156357/cordova-status-bar-plugin-doesnt-work-in-android-when-keyboard-pops-up
I think you should make a bug report.
Asmodean , could you share your basic project with me so that I can join it to the bug report? I've been trying to export a basic project to my android phone for one hour, but for some reason I have the message "the package appears to be corrupted" when trying to install it on the phone.
Thanks in advance!
I build the apk with Cordova CLI. I don't know if it's really helpful. I assume you used the build service from Scirra? I think it should be an apk from their build service.
However here is my apk:
It's only a Textbox without any events.
