Long time no see! I’ve been making some new projects, including a nice new pool light color dashboard, and I have an interesting conundrum:
I’m running SharpTools on Fully Kiosk Browser on Android.
I have a shortcut on my main dashboard to my color controls dashboard. When I click it, obviously, SharpTools opens the color dashboard as expected. I also have a back button on this color control dashboard that takes me back to the main dashboard. Standard stuff…
What I’d like to happen is for the main home dashboard to come back after either an input on the color dash, or after a timeout of no activity (1 minute should be perfect). I’m finding that it’s nobody’s natural inclination to hit the back button after they select a color, and I don’t want the control panel sitting there on the color control dashboard after its usefulness has worn out.
Here’s what I THOUGHT I would do: Since I’m running Fully, I tried the feature Auto Reload on Idle. Set for 60 seconds. Works great. --Except it keeps reloading on the main dashboard as well, which is distracting and too much unnecessary traffic and downtime.
HOWEVER, this feature also has a “skip auto reload if showing the start url” setting. Great! So, it should reload to the start URL after a minute of idle time on the color control panel, right?
THAT’S where the problem starts. Fully ALWAYS THINKS IT’S ON THE START URL. I checked the behavior in Chrome, and when I click the shortcut to the color control dashboard, the url changes in the address bar. When I click back, it changes back to the start url. In Fully, it does not do this. To double-check, I turned on the address bar in Fully and watched it. Sure enough, it doesn’t change when clicking the shortcut. --As if it’s cashed and thus doesn’t matter, or (??) I’m scratching my head on this one.
Hoping someone can tell me why Fully is acting this way, or if there’s another way people are having their dashboards reset. If I could just get it to display what URL it’s actually on, this auto-reload setting would work perfectly for what I need. Perhaps there’s a setting in there somewhere or a different way to input my start URL?
Thanks for your help!
