Anyone doing Android development for non consumer uses? I'm developing a data collection app for my employer that would run as a fullscreen Android app on tablet devices. The devices and software would be sold together to companies for specific uses. My current target device is the Archos 7 home tablet. My app works fine but I can't seem to hide the status bar. The Android emulator shows the app bar as hidden, but when deployed to the device, the status bar still shows. I know that Archos has done some special work regarding the status bar, but I also know that other apps like the Video player do hide the status bar.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Do you have something like this in the AndroidManifest.xml file:

<activity ... 
       android:theme="@android:style/Theme.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen" >
or you could try setting via code with:

getWindow().setFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN, WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN);
