We have integrated Android sdk custom UI and would like to show chat button as a single button, like participants, video, and audio icon. Right now, it’s available inside More Option button. Please refer to the images.
Also, as you can see that the meeting is in landscape mode. But when we click on the chat, it opens in portrait mode. Is there any way that the chat opens in landscape mode too, as per the user’s device orientation.
Hi @nlytn, thanks for using our SDK.
In your post, you mention that you are using a custom UI, but you show screenshots from the default meeting UI. Are you just recreating the default meeting UI from within your custom meeting UI, or are you actually using a default meeting UI?
Also, please provide the version of the SDK that is being used.
Sorry, I was mistaken. It’s currently the default UI only.
Is there any possibility to show the chat button on default ui? If it is not possible for default UI, then is there any chance of doing that with custom UI?
Thank you for clarifying. Unfortunately, the SDK does not support adding new buttons to the default UI. If you were to implement a custom meeting UI, this would absolutely be possible since you have absolute control over the behavior and appearance of the meeting UI.
Thanks for the response.
If we can implement custom UI, can we show the chat and participants button only on the UI. Can we hide the video and audio button as well, as we are not giving permission for video and audio share by participants so they will be just take the space.
Could you please guide me in that direction, like how to show the desired buttons only if we implement custom UI.
With a custom UI, the SDK does not actually control any aspects of the UI. You are free to choose 100% of the meeting UI. Your only limitation with a custom UI is going to be what the Android framework is capable of.
A good place to get started with a custom UI would be our documentation on the feature. Additionally, there is a sample implementation available with the sample app included in the SDK package.
