Setting Meeting Share to Hidden hides the Webinar chat in Zoom SDK

On further investigation I found that if the method setMeetingShareHidden:YES in the iOS Zoom SDK,

This causes the chat button to disappear in the webinar, below is the code to reproduce this:

MobileRTCMeetingService *ms = [[MobileRTC sharedRTC] getMeetingService];
MobileRTCMeetingSettings *settings = [[MobileRTC sharedRTC] getMeetingSettings];
[settings setMeetingShareHidden:YES]; // BUG in ZOOM that hides the chat.

If I remove the third line I get this result:

This looks like a bug in the Zoom iOS SDK to me.

Hey @kaitlynnst,

Thanks for using the dev forum!

Can you confirm the version number you are using so that we can investigate?

Version: v5.7.6.1076


@Michael_Condon is there an update on this?

Hey @kaitlynnst,

I have reproduced this issue as well, and this is definitely a bug. Will file a bug report for this.
