How do I Disable Or Hide Back Button Soft Keys On Mobile?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Nov 29, 2014 6:17 pm

An issue that could affect some devices I found. Phones show the back, menu, and home buttons on the sides. When I load the game. And then make those buttons visible for whatever reason they stay there during gameplay. The buttons should go away after not touching them for awhile. It takes up part of the screen and my players are not able to see the laser button and the right side of the screen.

How could i disable the soft keys or make them hide for gameplay?

Do you mean on Android? Those keys are OS level buttons and are not normally hidden.

@Ashley
Yes, This game is for android i have multiple people testing for me and they say that the soft keys are popping up but not going hidden after not touching the back button.
Could this be an issue with XDK? and is anyone else having this issue or am i the only one?

This is a major issue for me, There are games on the market that do use these soft key buttons but after they are not in use they go hidden revealing a full screen. This is the first issue ive ever had with any type of soft keys and im really not sure how to go about fixing it.

Android the LG G2 is the main device model im having the issue with.

This would be nice. Games since android about 4.3 or 4.4 go "full screen" which alerts the user to swipe down to bring back the softkeys. C2 doesn't handle the java code, so it probably be the XDK which would handle it if its even supported. I'm using sony z1. Anyone know if this works yet?
