Hello citizens,

I was wondering if it was possible to have have a menu bar at the bottom of the tablet (like on the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1) on the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1?

Since I'm using the tablet in a casing, the bottom button (Home, Back, etc) are hidden. Is it possible to do it without making new casings?

P.S.In a future cutom rom maybe?

For those wondering how,

just make your own using WindowManager.

WindowManager.LayoutParams params = new WindowManager.LayoutParams(
LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT,
LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT,
WindowManager.LayoutParams.TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT,
WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_WATCH_OUTSIDE_TOUC H|
WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_NOT_FOCUSABLE,
PixelFormat.TRANSLUCENT);

(WindowManager) getSystemService(WINDOW_SERVICE).addView(MENUBARVI EW, params);
