    Greetings, all.

    Background
    Nexus 7 - 1280 by 800 but in reality, LV is 1280 by 732 (action bar)
    B4A Layout 1280 by 800 is cut short.

    I experimented with Android 4.4 Immersive Mode (a couple of threads on the subject), but Immersive Mode is applied after the layout is loaded. Then, the layout and all corresponding views would have to be adjusted - lots of coding. It would be easier to "redesign" the layout to be 1200 by 700 to cover these cases (still lots of work).

    QUESTION
    Is there a way to apply Immersive Mode BEFORE the layout is loaded?

    Any and all help is welcomed.

    No. The main problem with this mode (and B4A) is that the activity height is not updated and therefore the layout will not use the new height automatically.

    If you really need this mode then there are ways to adjust the activity height but they are not simple.
