For the sake of keeping this from going the way every other thread I've seen on the subject always goes: Yes, I am fully aware that adw launcher and launcher pro give you the option of hiding your whole statusbar. No, that is not what I am after, nor is that what this post is about. This is a question for theme developers... Is there anyone out there that knows how to hide the statusbar clock in FroYo? I've been poking around for the past two days trying to figure this one out on my own, but it's not going as smoothly as I would like it to be.
Most of what I've been reading points to the Services.jar file. (Specifically comandroidserverstatusStatusBarIcon.smali)... but any of the threads I've found mention changing the border. I can't find anything in the StatusBarIcon.smali file that indicates border spacing at all. Am I even on the right track here, or am I looking in completely the wrong place?
I made some changes to the status bar and for the most part it went smooth other than the signal icon. I have a D3 with the Eclipse 3 rom. I used Ninjamorph went into framework , apps, systemui.apk and changed the png files of the signal bar png's. when I reboot the new image shows up but changes back to the old style when the 3g or 1x kicks in. do I need to change a different signal png?
I'm using a Lenovo a60 phone. It has dual SIM support. However i rarely keep the second SIM card activated which results in a no-signal icon beside the 1st SIM signal icon. Anyway i can remove the NO SIGNAL icon ONLY? I still want the signal strength of the second SIM to appear when SIM 2 is activated but i don't want the icon when SIM 2 is deactivated.
I believe it lies somewhere in the SystemUI.apk since that's how i removed the Vibration Indicator icon.
How to remove the NO SIGNAL icon in the statusbar of ANY PHONE (dual sim or not).

I am creating a WebView which is being launched from an activity named StartUpActivity.java. My intention is to hide the status bar at the top when the WebView comes to the front, so that the WebView remains full screen (no status bar). I can hide the status bar when I launch an activity using this code : getWindow().setFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN,WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN ); Is there any way to hide the status bar when using WebView?
I used the following theme to set fullscreen mode in Android 1.1, but the same code doesn't hide the Status Bar in 1.5. The Activity goes fullscreen, but the Status Bar always stays on top of it. The theme used:
Even tried setting the flags for the window using the following, but nothing worked.
I've looked all over the forum, but don't see any recent posts for my question. So I'm hoping someone can help... I would like to hide or remove unwanted icons from the left side of the notification/status bar. I realize most programs give you this option, but some don't (such as the latest version of Norton security program). It just sits up there and hogs up real estate. Ideally, it would also be nice to be able to rearrange the icons, or make them larger if desired..
I finally uninstalled Home ++, as bad as it killed me to do it, I couldn't tolerate the force closes and bog down any longer. My Droid is screaming fast now, but I plan on reinstalling Home++ when the issues get worked out. One of the things I liked was the way it hid the status bar. Is there any other app or option out there to hide the status on the stock home?
I want to get ride of android status bar.Using Htc desire c, custom ROM 4.1.2 Simplicity. Already ask on HTC d C forum about that, the developer too.This thing is called : google search bar,i removed google search but the white template ,not.
I've been using various ROMs (including various Xposed modules) in the past and most of them allow me to auto-hide the status bar.But whenever I swipe down from the top and the statusbar is displayed, it resizes the entire content on my phone.
What I was looking for is a statusbar that will show up above the content, like the immersive mode in KitKat but for JB so it doesn't resize my content but overlap it.
I know there are some apps that give you this kind of auto-hide status bar but it will only work in fullscreen apps, so I tried to make everything on my phone full screen (using expanded desktop) but it doesn't seem to work...
I'm pretty sure the answer is "no" but, is there any way to hide the clock in the notification bar? If I'm using a clock widget like Beautiful Widgets I don't want to see another clock in the notification area. I like home++ but I don't want to hide the whole notification bar, just the clock.
Is there an app, or a zip file to flash, to where i can choose to hide certain icons from the status bar? i like to just turn my screen on to see if i have any notifications, but i hate it how i get the "more" icon, where you have to drag the status bar down, only to find out it was just an update notification.
I have a situation like this. I have a "A" app which shows on home screen. When I click this "A" app, It will show many other apps which installed or will be installed on the device. ut the problem is I only want to show these apps through the "A" app only.Is it possible?? If installing and hiding icons not possible, I can dynamically download these apps from my own cloud and load them at the request. Can anyone please guide me some ideas or something?'m so lost here and just no clue at all how to start!
I defined an application which is only used from my other application. So I would like to hide the icon of this application, so that the user can't see it on the desktop of his phone (or how do you call the thing where all apps are listed?). My manifest file looks the following way:
I already read this question: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1063604/how-to-hide-an-application-icon-in-android-emulator But if I just remove the line <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" /> in my manifest, the activity isn't working at all (ActivityNotFoundException in the calling activity). I already tried android.intent.category.EMBEDDED but this doesn't work too. In the Internet I found CommonsWare answer http://osdir.com/ml/Android-Developers/2010-06/msg03617.html that it can be done using PackageManager. Unfortunately, it isn't explained how exactly and I couldn't find a solution by browsing the PackageManager API.
I have an application which launch automatically after the booting finished,but the application icon is displayed in the android emulator.Now i want to hide that icon from the user.So that the user cannot know from the application is lanuch and they cannot launch that application manually.
Is there any way to hide an application icon from Android applications list ? The application should be downloaded from Market and opened some GUI for configuring my application. I don't want to see any icon of my application in applications list. User should not be able to run it.
By the way I know some way:remove this line from manifest <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" /> But it is not worked for me, because the GUI is not shown.
First I want to acheive battery status and signal strength instantly. For Battery Status, we can use SystemProperties.get ("status.battery.level_raw") to get current battery level. This class is not in SDK reference, but we can see this function is used in BatteryService and other fields. I use it successfully But for Signal Strength, I only find the way to use onSignalStrengthChange(int asu) which only gives us an "asu", new version seems to support onSignalStrengthsChange(....). But now, is there better ways for exact signal strength?
I want to hide my application icon from main menu at the run time. I believe that a filter with category Launcher in the application's manifest file is responsible for the application's presence in the main menu. Is there any way to change the category at run time? or any other way to hide the icon from main menu?
I apologize if this has been asked before or if this is in the wrong section. I have been searching the forum and the Internet for the answer on how to display the time on the status bar of the Droid. I think I remember seeing it before but now its gone and I've looked through the settings looking for an option to turn it on with no success. Let me know if this is possible.
Is there a way to have one status bar icon, but multiple entries in the notification pull down? I need to generate a few notifications that each trigger a different action when clicked, but I don't want to fill the status bar with useless icons in the process. Being able to create a notification without an icon at all would work too.
I use the GPS functions and My Tracks quite frequently on my DX. I was wondering if there was a way to check to see which satellites the DX locks on to and their strength - much like a GPS unit (Garmin, etc)?
I would like to use this information to check some settings while on trails as well as getting the Lat/Long of my position.
If I have to use an APP to do this can you recommend a good one?
