I work for a company who sells TF101 tablets preloaded with children software for prek students in school systems. Our biggest problem is that children are always given access to the status bar at the bottom and they are getting out of apps and into areas they shouldn't on the tablets. I need a way to remove the navigation bar from the screen while they are in our application. We do have a way to exit the application within the teachers menu, so I do not intend on locking people in my app, we are just getting complaints that the children are leaving the app and getting into other areas on the tablet. Ideally, I would like the navigation bar to be removed completely when the app opens and it will reappear once the app is closed.
I know that force closing the system UI from settings will remove the navigation bar but I am not sure how to get it back without a reboot. I am wondering if there is a way to add a few lines of code to my application so this happens automatically and then restored once the application is exited. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?
