Samsung Galaxy Tab A6 Smart View

Morning all,

We have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A6 tablet running Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 that we are using for an interactive game. The content on the tablet is displayed on a television screen via Samsung Smart View. Smart View has an icon on the tablet that confirms it is sharing the content with the television screen. (photo attached below). Is there any way that we can remove the icon (as the users keep pressing it), whilst continuing to share content to the television screen via Smart View?

Many thanks,

I've already posted that on there thank you. I'm struggling to find anyone that can even point me in the right direction to get started!

When I was in need of inside info

I had to go to developer seminars to ask there. I do not currently write for Samsung specifics but what you are looking for is their API and digging through it to see if there is a call to turn it off in your app.

I appreciate the advice, thank you, but we need to do something pretty quickly as the application has already been rolled out to the customer! (They signed it off, but it was poor testing on our part) and I'm kind of picking up the pieces and dealing with the fallout. YAY!

My old story.

There was a problem with our app on the Handspring Visor and we had to find the API Handspring put out and add a check if the app was on said device and make an API call.

The internet was just revving up in those days so you ended up calling the company and talking to support engineers. At least emails and FTP sites were up then!

You may have to hit the developer site for contacts, call and ask for a support engineer for this one.
