How can I prevent a top swipe revealing the navigation bar?


I'm developing a "kiosk mode" style app on the Zebra PS20. Using the profile manager I've managed to hide the bottom buttons and stop access to the top navigation/status bar functions. However, I can't find an easy way to stop the swipe from the screen top revealing the navigation bar.

A simple swipe down near the top reveals it for a few seconds:


For Target MX Version 8.1 I'm altering the UI Manager settings:

  • Enable/Disable HomeKey: Disable
  • Pull Down of Notification Panel: Disable
  • Settings Icon on Notification Panel: Hide
  • Network Monitor Notification: Turn Off
  • Enable/Disable NAvigation Bar: Disable
  • Magnification Gesture: Turn Off
  • Enable/Disable SplitScreenMode: Disable
  • Enable/Disable Do Not Disturb: Disable
  • Enable/Disable Multi User: Disable

The rest are at their defaults.

I thought that "Pull Down of Notification Panel" would have solved it but apparently not.

Is it possible to prevent the swipe using the API or profile manager?

Hi Patrick, using purely MX I

Hi Patrick, using purely MX I don't think this is possible.  You would need a 'kiosk mode' solution, please see for more details and you may want to take a look at Enterprise Home Screen.
