Is there a programmatic means of turning off the time display on the base lcd in order to reclaim that space when acquiring a status bar region using the IStatusBarProvider?
Is there a nice way to figure out how much space is available other than continually calling acquireRegion with smaller and smaller width values until it finally succeeds?
Is it just me, or has anybody else noticed that the virtual bug seems to allow me less space than the actual bug?
Sorry for long delay to respond.
Currently there is no way to turn off the time display, but I entered defect into bugzilla: http://bugcommunity.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?i…
Calling acquireRegion as you do is the only way to calculate available space right now.
As far as Virtual BUG’s status bar size it’s the same size as the hardware, but I will double check.
