Kiosk mode: changing the way menu button works

Hi,


Is there any way to disable/change the way menu button works in Kiosk mode?

 

The issue we're facing that's during our 20 min simulations button gets pressed accedentaly and app restarts, which is not helping the process. 

 

We want to fix that either by disabling it or showing a pop-up message (press once again to exit or something similliar). 

 

Please let me know if this is allowed somewhere in SDK or in manifest. 


Thanks

This will likely be an easy fix. Please note, there are two menu buttons - the application menu button and the SteamVR system button.

 

First, if you're encountering the SteamVR menu; just go into SteamVR settings -> Developer -> Enable VR dashboard = False. Just untick Enable VR dashboard and the SteamVR button will become non-responsive. 

 

Second, if you're dealing with the application menu button - that functionality will be hardcoded into your application. The two options would be to

 

A) Have your developer remove that functionality - this is only feasible with custom software.

 

B) (What you'd most likely need to do) Use SteamVR's binding to remap that application menu button on both controllers to something benign like a trigger or grip press via SteamVR -> Devices -> Controller input binding.

Hi,

 

Thanks, we know how it would have worked with Vive :smileywink:

 

We're working with HTC Vive Focus.

Is there any documentation on how to do the same for its controller?

Is it something in Android manifest?

Would appreciate the help.

 

Thanks

Hi ,

 

Could you let us know what's ROM version you used?

We have change design (disable previous behavior) for this accidentally press button to restart the app, since we received similar feedback that user is easily to mis-touch the button and user experience isn't good.

Please update to new version to check the behavior, and please provide your SN if you couldn't do ROM update for our checking.

Thanks.
