Unfortunately, that feature isn't available in StageNow. However, you could potentially use the Null Keyboard app to replace the default keyboard. This could help achieve the results you're looking for. Since the MC92N0 device doesn't have google play services, you can download the app from https://apkpure.com/null-keyboard/com.wparam.nullkeyboard
Using NullKeyboard, how would you enable it from StageNow ?
Alternatelly, is there a call from "adb" that could enable ?
I'm interested too.
I'm trying to configure NullKeyboard through StageNow but I've got an error.
this is the steps i follow:
- Create a profile selecting Xpert Mode
- Select UiMgr (Manage UI configuration)
- Set Default Input Method --> Change current input method
- defined the Package name: com.wparam.nullkeyboard
- defined the class name of input method: android.view.InputMethod
But when i scan the barcode generated by StageNow i've got an error
Original Error message: No such input method supported on device
I really don't know how to do disable the google keyboard using StageNow
Thanks in advance for any tip
I think the class name is going to be something like com.wparam.nullkeyboard.NullKeyboard. If you see the examples at UI Manager - Zebra Technologies Techdocs this is using com.android.inputmethod.latin.LatinIME which is the class that extends InputMethodService (java/src/com/android/inputmethod/latin/LatinIME.java - platform/packages/inputmethods/LatinIME - Git at Google )
Hi Darryn, thanks for your reply..
I've just tried with the com.wparam.nullkeyboard.NullKeyboard as class name and now I've a different error:
Original Error message
Error in set default input method: com.wparam.nullkeyboard,
Interesting... I gave it a go because I am interested myself and I see the same error. I do observe that the default IME has been changed to NullKeyboard however (i.e. when I select a text field the keyboard does not appear) so I am unsure what is causing that error. When I go to the 'Manage keyboards' settings screen I notice I cannot disable everything BUT NullKeyboard - I always need to have some other keyboard enabled, either Gboard or Zebra's Enterprise Keyboard - although the default IME is still NullKeyboard. I suspect Android requires some feature of a keyboard which is not exposed by NullKeyboard which could be causing the staging error but I'm unsure what that could be exactly.
Thank you very much Darryn,
So it seems that it’s not possible to do it via StageNow.
