Where is the proper point to get the safe area of the device? — Gideros Forum

Where is the proper point to get the safe area of the device?

It won't get the real value if the getDeviceSafeArea method is called in the main.lua.
Of course, it can be get by calling Timer.delayedCall for several milliseconds.
Where is the correct point to get these values?


  • Hmm, how about that?

    In main.lua:
    local function LoadApp()
    	-- setup variables, create scenes, load resources, etc.
    	-- use getDeviceSafeArea

    I am using something similar to @hgy29 where I make some global variables... and I do it in init.lua as I feel that is the best place for that kind of thing to live.

    Thanks for all of the reply.
    but not the getLogicalBounds.

    Yes, I think I had similar issues due to orientation changes when app is launched. I think calling it from APPLICATION_RESIZE event was the workaround.
