Feature request:

When is showed onscreen keyboard then on Navigation Bar is showed icon of keyboard as you can see here https://i.imgur.com/K3hmfom.png.

Please, can you add to MX (for Android 11, device MC2200) the possibility to remove this icon or at least disable it? I am developing kiosk application and I don't want to disable the whole Navigation Bar due to Back key functionality.

MX already contains the possibility to disable Recent App button and Home App button (see here https://techdocs.zebra.com/stagenow/3-2/csp/ui/), but not then Keyboard icon.

I already tried to disable notifications "Virtual keyboard" and "Physical keyboard" in Settings for application "System Android", but without success!

This icon is only present if there are multiple keyboards available. Perhaps try using MX to disable your un-used keyboard(s) as a workaround?

We'll pass this onto our product team none the less.

Workaround is "only one keyboard" plus disabled notifications "Virtual keyboard" and "Physical keyboard" for application "System Android".
It would be good if it be in the MX framework.

Strange, this workaround not work always. I don't know why.
Next reason for add this to MX framework.
