Going from not full screen to full screen with Android works fine. However, upon returning from my full screen activity (a full screen video player), the activity pops in sliding down as the status bar animates down. It seems that the resuming activity is animated in from the full screen mode but with the status bar not there the actual activity is being painted as if it were missing.
I have tried messing with my manifest file specifying themes/styles. I have tried doing this programmatically in onCreate() before the content view is set and various other places in the activity life cycle:
You need a few more flags: FLAG_LAYOUT_IN_SCREEN and FLAG_LAYOUT_NO_LIMITS.
