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:


    <FullScreen value="1"/>

     <PageZoom value="1.8" />

     <EnableZoom value="0"/>



     <EngineInUse value="IE"/>



        <Name value="Menu"/>

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



        <DisableScannerDuringNavigation value="0"/>



     <ResizeOnSIP  value="0"/>




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




<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
