CSS Question

Phonegap Cordova Statusbar Plugin creating double bars

I am working on an app using phonegap. Building through CLI, not phonegap build. I am having an issue with the cordova-plugin-statusbar plugin. It will add an extra bar height when turned on. Here is what it looks like.

double height menu bar:

double height menu bar

I have implemented the status bar in two ways. First by adding tags to config.xml

<platform name="ios">
<preference name="StatusBarOverlaysWebView" value="false" />
<preference name="StatusBarStyle" value="default" />
<preference name="StatusBarBackgroundColor" value="#000000" />
</platform>


I have also done this with javascript, (by first removing the config tags) and adding the following to my DeviceReady function

StatusBar.overlaysWebView( false );
StatusBar.backgroundColorByHexString('#000000');
StatusBar.styleDefault();


To see what was going on, i have changed the color and I get this

Double status bar 2 colors:

Double status bar 2 colors.

also when I remove everything or set the overlaysWebView to 'true', I get no spacing and my content is under the menubar.

StatusBar.overlaysWebView( true );


Which leads me to believe that I do not have a CSS issue. Also, i went through my css and do not see anything that would be adding this. my css is pretty basic so far.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin and the ios platform with no change to the issue.

I have tested this on multiple IOS simulators (different phones) and all have the same result, I have not tested directly on a device yet, but I doubt it would be different.

I have noticed that android also has a status bar buffer (even though it should not), but it is only the single white bar. I assume that would suggest CSS, but i do not see this in the browser when I run


phonegap serve


Quick Update: I am taking a break from the statusBar and working on getting my google maps plugin to also work, I made some changes and the status bar seems to be working now. There must have been some sort of interaction. Going to see if i could figure out what exactly.

Controller for MenuBar

console.log("menuBar.controller.js file loaded");

snApp.controller('menuBarController', ['$mdSidenav', '$window', MenuBarController]);


function MenuBarController($mdSidenav, $window) {
var vm = this;

// vm.operatingSystem = $window.operatingSystem;
vm.operatingSystem = null;
vm.toggleLeftMenu = toggleLeftMenu;
vm.checkForIos = checkForIos;

function toggleLeftMenu() {
$mdSidenav('left').toggle();
}
}


View example - Home.html page is super simple right now for testing:

<!-- home.html -->
<div class="content" ng-controller="HomeController as home">
<h1>Home Page</h1>
<p>{{ home.message }}</p>
</div>


home.controller.js

console.log("home.controller.js file loaded");

angular.module('snApp')
.controller("HomeController", HomeController);

function HomeController() {
//debugger;
var vm = this;
vm.message = "this is a home message";
}


map.html - Here is the maps view - a lot is in there just for testing right now.

<!-- map.html -->
<div class="content" ng-controller="MapController as map">
<h1>Map Page</h1>
<md-content layout-gt-sm="row" layout-padding>
<md-button ng-click="map.setMapToDiv();">show map</md-button>
<md-button ng-click="map.getLocation();" ng-disabled="map.buttonDisabled">{{ map.buttonText }}</md-button>
<md-input-container>
<label>Div Adjustent</label>
<input ng-model="map.divAdjustment">
</md-input-container>
<md-button ng-click="map.adjustDiv();" > Adjust Div Height </md-button>
<p></p>
<p>For testing - buttonEnabled value: <span ng-bind="map.buttonDisabled"></span></p>
<p>{{ map.latitude }}</p>
<p>{{ map.longitude }}</p>
<p>{{ map.message }}</p>
<p></p>
<md-button ng-click="map.showMapDialog();">make map full screen</md-button>
<!-- <div id="map" ng-show="map.locationUpdated"> -->
<div id="map" ng-show="true"></div>
</md-content>
</div>

Answer

If anyone bumps into this, having the same issues. I basically found a solution that was more of a workaround rather than a direct answer, but might be helpful. I decided to use the plugin still for coloring the text properly, but the rest I am managing manually.

    StatusBar.overlaysWebView(true);
    StatusBar.backgroundColorByHexString('#1D1D1D');
    StatusBar.styleLightContent();

Then some CSS

#statusBar {
    background-color:#1D1D1D;
    width:100%;
    min-width:100%;
    overflow: auto;
    min-height:20px;
    height:20px;
}

I have this div as a part of my menu bar. The menu bar is its own angular component. In the controller, i have a method that checks for the OS version. thanks to this post: Detecting iOS / Android Operating system

snApp.controller('menuBarController', ['$mdSidenav', '$window', '$googleMapsService', MenuBarController]);


function MenuBarController($mdSidenav, $window, $googleMapsService) {
    var vm = this;
    var leftMenuId = 'left';
    vm.isIosValue = false;

    vm.$onInit = function() {
        vm.isIosValue = vm.checkForIos();
    }

    vm.operatingSystem = null;
    vm.toggleLeftMenu = toggleLeftMenu;
    vm.getMobileOperatingSystem = getMobileOperatingSystem;
    vm.checkForIos = checkForIos;
    vm.isIos = isIos;

    vm.googleMaps = $googleMapsService;

    function toggleLeftMenu() {
        mapDivManagement();
        $mdSidenav(leftMenuId).onClose(mapDivManagement).toggle();
    }

    function mapDivManagement() {
        if(vm.googleMaps.checkMap() && $window.location.hash == "#/map")
        {
            if($mdSidenav(leftMenuId).isOpen()) {
                console.log("vm.googleMaps.revealMap(true);");
                vm.googleMaps.revealMap(true);
            }
            else {
                console.log("vm.googleMaps.revealMap(false);");
                vm.googleMaps.revealMap(false);
            }
        }
    }


    /**

     */
    function getMobileOperatingSystem() {
        var userAgent = navigator.userAgent || navigator.vendor || window.opera;
        //debugger;
          // Windows Phone must come first because its UA also contains "Android"
        if (/windows phone/i.test(userAgent)) {
            // return "Windows Phone";
            vm.operatingSystem =  "Windows Phone";
        }
        else if (/android/i.test(userAgent)) {
            // return "Android";
            vm.operatingSystem =  "Android";
        }
        // iOS detection from: http://stackoverflow.com/a/9039885/177710
        else if (/iPad|iPhone|iPod/.test(userAgent) && !window.MSStream) {
            // return "iOS";
            vm.operatingSystem =  "iOS";
        }
        else {
            vm.operatingSystem =  "unknown";
        }
            // return "unknown";
    }

    function checkForIos() {
        vm.getMobileOperatingSystem();
        //vm.operatingSystem = $window.operatingSystem;
        if(vm.operatingSystem == 'iOS') {
            return true;
        }
        else {
            return false;
        }
    }

    function isIos() {
        return vm.isIosValue;
    }
}

Finally, in my menubar.html file, I have this div:

    <!-- Status Bar -->
<div ng-show="menuBarController.isIos()" id="statusBar"></div>

which will show or hide the div based on the OS.

Not sure how this will all work in a call, but it gets you pretty far otherwise.
