EB:MC330M - Disable Auto Zoom and On-Screen Touch Keyboard

Hello all,

We are going to upgrade our whole hardware infrastructure by the end of 2018-early 2019 and part of the upgrade was the purchase of several MC330M (Android 7.1.2). The plan is to make the MC330M work with our current services (using a web browser) until the whole project is finish and we transition from using the web browser to using a custom made android application.

Using EB and the config.xml file we manage to make MC330M work with our system however more tweaks are needed.

What we changed so far is:

<Screen>

    <FullScreen value="1"/>

     <PageZoom value="1.8" />

     <EnableZoom value="0"/>

</Screen>

<Engine>

     <EngineInUse value="IE"/>

</Engine>

<General>

        <Name value="Menu"/>

        <StartPage value="URL" name="Services"/>

</General>

<Scanner>

        <DisableScannerDuringNavigation value="0"/>

</Scanner>

<SIP>

     <ResizeOnSIP  value="0"/>

</SIP>

<Navigation>

     ...

     <UserAgent value="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows CE; IEMobile 6.8)" />

     ...

</Navigation>

and

<usedwforscanning  value="1"/>

From our testing the Engine "AndroidStock" was also working.

The issues we have with this configuration are:

  • If we use the scanner (DW) twice in the same text box, the browser automatic zooms-in too much. If the scanning is done in a different text box, then everything is ok.
  • Also we want to disable the on-screen touch keyboard while using EB and "force" users to use the MC330M's keypad.
  • Finally, since we want to disable auto-zooming, it will be best if we can assign some of the keys in the keypad for zoom-in, zoom-out and default zoom.

Reading through the documentations I think we should include the JS API modules.

Can someone point us to the right direction?

Thank you
