Show Custom Dialog should not open the status area ... but it does.

Discussion created by dburnham on Apr 12, 2014

I have a solution running in "kiosk" mode on iPads.


I struggled for hours trying to find out why when a script returns the user to a "home" layout when the status area was locked and hidden, the status area became unlocked and shown.


I tested to be sure that script triggers were not operating behind my back and there were none.


When I turned the Show Custom Dialog to disabled, the problem was solved.


However, I would like to be able to present a custom dialog box without causing the status area to open.


Is this a known or unknown bug, or am I doing something wrong.


I can write a workaround using a popover or something else instead of the custom dialog, but I would like to learn what's happening.
