Config.xml Reference

Enterprise Browser 1.7

Overview

Runtime configuration settings of Enterprise Browser apps are managed through the Config.xml file, a required file that must accompany every EB app. The Config.xml determines features and behavior of the EB runtime, including its start-up page, keys that can be intercepted by an app, and whether to pre-load modules on startup. A default configuration file is provided as part of the Enterprise Browser installation, and contains some (though not all) of the most common settings.

The default Config.xml file for Android devices is displayed below, followed by explanations of all tags and parameter settings for Android and Windows Mobile/CE. The EB Config.xml can be edited with an ordinary text editor or with the Config Editor utility included with the installation of Enterprise Browser 1.3 and higher.

Config.xml Location

The location of the configuration file on the device varies by target and platform:

  • On the Enterprise Tablet, the Config.xml file is read from: /Android/data/com.symbol.EnterpriseBrowser/

  • On all other devices, Enterprise Browser will attempt to read the Config.xml file from the /Config directory off the installation root, which varies by device platform:

    • Android: /Android/data/com.symbol.enterprisebrowser
    • Windows: \Program Files\EnterpriseBrowser\Config
  • If multiple Config.xml files are required for a single device, they can be configured and selected at runtime using the /C: configuration parameter or by using Shortcuts. See the Shortcut Creator Guide for details.

Persistent Installations

If a Config.xml must be retained after a cold boot, a persistent installation can be selected (applies to Windows devices only). In such systems:

  • The Config.xml file is permanently stored in: \Application\EnterpriseBrowser\Config\Config.xml
  • On cold boot the Config.xml is copied to: \Program Files\EnterpriseBrowser\Config\Config.xml
  • This behavior can be modified by changing \Application\EnterpriseBrowser.cpy file

Note: File and directory names of operating systems are case sensitive. Zebra therefore recommends that case values of files and directories entered in the Config.xml file are identical to the names of the files themselves.


Substitution Variables

The following substitution variables are supported for use in the Config.xml file:

Variable Description
%INSTALLDIR%
(read-write)
Installation directory of the Enterprise Browser app
(i.e. /Android/Data/com.symbol.enterprisebrowser)
%PRIMARYDIR%
(read-write)
The root directory of internal device storage
(i.e. /storage/sdcard0)
%SECONDARYDIR%
(read-only)
The root directory of external storage
(i.e. /storage/sdcard1)
%PERSISTCONFDIR%
(read-write)
A directory that persists after an Enterprise Reset of the device
(i.e. /enterprise/device/enterprisebrowser)

Notes:

  • Zebra recommends using the %PERSISTCONFDIR% variable only with MDM and/or EMM systems or in mass deployment scenarios.

  • The %SECONDARYDIR% variable is read-only; Enterprise Browser cannot write to an external SD Card.


Config.xml file format

The default Config.xml file for Android is shown below for reference. Important differences exist between Android and Windows Mobile/CE settings in the Config.xml file, mainly involving directory structure and file naming. Use care when setting these values.

WARNING: Free-form text fields (i.e. username and password) can accept alpha-numeric characters unless otherwise noted. Entering non-text characters (< > \ / " ') in these fields could cause the Config.xml file to become corrupt.

  • 1 - Enabled (Recent Apps list blocked)

Example


  <CustomKioskMode>
    <setRecentAppDisable value ="0"/>
  </CustomKioskMode>

JSLibraries

Applies only to devices running Android KitKat and higher. Causes the Enterprise Browser JavaScript API libraries (ebapi-modules.js and elements.js) to be injected into the DOM of every HTML page. Disabled by default. Enabling this feature (value=1) removes the requirement to manually include a reference to the API libraries on every page from which an API is called, but in most cases will not conflict with such references. See Notes.

Important Notes:

  • If the existing HTML page(s) invoke EB APIs using HTML meta tags and/or onload attributes, JSLibraries parameter should be used only if invocation was through DOM injection.
  • Directly invoking APIs through meta tags or onload attributes (without DOM injection) can result in timing issues.
  • The standard method of accessing Enterprise Browser API libraries (ebapi-modules.js and elements.js) is to include a reference to the appropriate library on every HTML page from which an EB API is called.
  • The standard API access method should be used whenever possible and is detailed on each of the API pages.
  • For scenarios in which it is difficult or impossible to modify the HTML source to include EB API references, Zebra recommends invoking APIs using DOM Injection for best results.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disabled (default)
  • 1 - Enabled

Example


<InjectEBLibraries>
    <JSLibraries value="0"/>
</InjectEBLibraries>

WebViewLayout

Applies only to devices running Android KitKat and higher. Allows one or more of the WebView layout parameters to be specified (in pixels) when an Enterprise Browser app is launched. Note*: This tag is not included in the default Config.xml file. If one or more of these layout parameters are required on startup, tags must be added as shown in the example below.

Supported parameters:

  • LayoutLeft sets the horizontal start position
  • LayoutTop sets the vertical start position
  • LayoutWidth sets the width (not to exceed device screen width)
  • LayoutHeight sets the height (not to exceed device screen height)

Possible Values:

  • An integer representing the start position and/or dimension (in pixels) of the corresponding parameter. Must not exceed device display specifications.

Example


<Configuration>
  ...

Example WM/CE

 

<SplashScreenPath value="file://%INSTALLDIR%\rho\apps\app\loading.png"/>

SplashScreenDuration

Applies to Android only. Specifies the length of time (in milliseconds) to display the image defined by the SplashScreenDuration tag. It is recommended that the duration be greater than 3000 ms (3 seconds) to compensate for image loading time. If tag is removed or left unspecified, will default to 0 seconds.

Possible Values:

  • time in milliseconds (default = 0)

Example


<SplashScreenDuration value="0"/> //Applies to Android only

WakeLock

Applies to Android only. Controls whether the CPU will remain active after the power button is pressed, which otherwise turns off the screen and keyboard backlight. Disabled by default. Effects battery life.

Note: The WakeLock feature also is accessible using the EB.Device.acquirePartialWakeLock(); and EB.Device.releasePartialWakeLock(); JavaScript function calls. This method overrides any setting stored in the Config.xml file but does not alter it.

Possible Values:

  • PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK
  • (null) default

Example


<WakeLock>
    <WakeLockType value=""/>
</WakeLock>

FunctionKeyMapping

Applies only to certain devices running Windows Mobile, including the Omnii XT15 and Workabout Pro. Controls whether proprietary Unicode values specific to those devices only will be substituted with values specified in a file and used for Windows keydown/keyup function-key messages. Applies only to function keys.

Notes:

  • This tag is not present in the default Config.xml file; it must be added manually if function key mapping is required.
  • The <FunctionKeyMapping> node (shown in the example below) is a child node of the <Configuration> node.
  • Use of this tag requires the mapping file to be created separately as follows:
    • File name: EBFunctionKeyMapping.xml
    • File location (on device): \Program Files\EnterpriseBrowser\
  • See the Keycode Mapping Guide for more information.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disabled (or if node is not present, does not map proprietary function keys)
  • 1 - Enabled (maps proprietary function keys from EBFunctionKeyMapping.xml file)

Example


<FunctionKeyMapping> 
    <FunctionKeyMappingToStandardMSValue value="1"/> 
</FunctionKeyMapping> 

StartPage

Defines the start page of the Enterprise Browser application displayed at launch. A device-resident file is recommended to avoid connectivity issues on startup. StartPage entry must be a fully qualified local path using file:// or URL using http://. For URLs, accepts UTF-8 characters only. Case sensitive.

Possible Values:

  • Fully qualified path to start page

Example


<StartPage value="file:///index.html" name="Start Page"/>

<!-- OR -->

<StartPage value="http://www.hostsite.com/my_app_menu.html" name="Menu"/>

Name

Stores the name of the application.

Possible Values:

  • ASCII text

Example


<Name value="My App"/>

UseRegularExpressions

Used to maintain backward compatibility with PocketBrowser syntax for controlling device capabilities. This is accomplished through a Regular Expression engine, which applies a series of transformations as defined in RegEx.xml to each meta tag or JavaScript call being processed. If backward compatibility is not required, regular expressions can be safely disabled to help improve app performance (depending on app structure). Applies only to apps for Windows Mobile/CE devices built with RhoMobile Suite 2.2 or higher that need backward compatibility with PocketBrowser.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Do Not Use Regular Expressions
  • 1 - Use Regular Expressions

Example


<UseRegularExpressions value='1'/>

PageZoom

Sets the zoom factor of the page. Default zoom value is 1.0 (if unspecified). On Android, zero and negative values are not supported. On Windows, zoom value less than 1.0 reverts to 1.0 since lower values would not be readable. Page zoom settings will sometimes be reflected a few milliseconds after navigating from one page to another. A one-second delay should be anticipated. Not Supported when using Internet Explorer as the rendering engine.

Possible Values:

  • Zoom factor of the page

Example


<PageZoom value="1.0"/>

VoidConnection

TrackConnection

Controls whether the application will monitor connection to the server specified by the HostURL tag. Will display a pop-up when connectivity is lost and navigate to a "bad link" page if the timeout interval is reached. Modal pop-up on Android prevents further UI actions. Non-modal Windows pop-up allows user to access background apps, which is not recommended.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disabled
  • 1 - Enabled

Example


<TrackConnection value="0"/>

HostURL

Used to specify the URL to which an application will connect. Supports IP addresses, host names and specific ports (when appended to URL with a colon. If no port is specified, default=80).

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disabled
  • 1 - Enabled

Example


<Public value="0"/>

DeviceKeys

Note: On Windows Mobile and Windows CE devices, full control is given to the developer over how their application handles function keys. Settings applied will persist until the device is warm-booted. Function key default behavior will vary from by device and operating system. On the Zebra MC75a, F3 and F4 represent the red and green phone keys. On many devices, the volume keys are also mapped as Function keys. Not all function keys will have default behavior.

Unblocking function keys may expose underlying operating system functions. On some devices, for example, red and green phone keys provide access to the start menu and programs.

The list below shows the behavior of the Enterprise Browser when Function Keys are pressed given the possible configuration settings:

  • ENABLE FUNCTION KEY = TRUE & FUNCTION KEYS CAPTURABLE = TRUE
    • All Function Keys can be captured by the Key Capture Module
    • Function Key will not have its default Operating system behavior
  • ENABLE FUNCTION KEY = TRUE & FUNCTION KEYS CAPTURABLE = FALSE
    • Function Keys with default OS behavior can not be captured by the Key Capture Module
    • Function Keys without default OS behavior can be captured by the Key Capture Module
    • Function Key will have its default Operating system behavior (if any)
  • ENABLE FUNCTION KEY = FALSE & FUNCTION KEYS CAPTURABLE = TRUE
    • All Function Keys can be captured by the Key Capture Module
    • Function Key will not have its default Operating system behavior
  • ENABLE FUNCTION KEY = FALSE & FUNCTION KEYS CAPTURABLE = FALSE
    • All Function Keys can not be captured by the Key Capture Module
    • Function Key will not have its default Operating system behavior (if any)

Example


<DeviceKeys>
    <EnableFunctionKey_F1 value="1"/>
</DeviceKeys>

FunctionKeysCapturable

Applies to Android and WM/CE. Determines behavior of function keys on Android and Windows Mobile/CE devices. When enabled, device Function keys are capturable using the Key Capture API. When disabled, keys revert to the device’s default behavior. This setting is not specific to an application. When enabled, settings are applied globally to the device. Refer to the EnableFunctionKey_X tag and complete documentation for more information about the interaction between the FunctionKeysCapturable and EnableFunctionKey_X parameters.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - F keys not capturable
  • 1 - F keys capturable

Example


<FunctionKeysCapturable value="1"/>

EnableFunctionKey_X

Applies to Android and WM/CE. This setting is used to specify which function keys (numbered F1 through F24) should be enabled in the Enterprise Browser app and override the system function key assignments (all function keys are assigned to the system by default). For each key to be enabled in EB, define a tag using EnableFunctionKey_X, replacing the ‘X’ with the key number being enabled. For example, to enable F1, the tag should include EnableFunctionKey_F1 as below. See the sample Config.xml in the user guide for correct branch placement. Requires a pre-load of the KeyCapture module.

On the Enterprise tablet, this tag can be used to enable the 'P' keys. For compatibility with other devices, the 'P' keys are referred to as 'F' keys in the config file. To enable P2 key on the Enterprise Tablet, the tag EnableFunctionKey_F2 should be set to 1. For WM/CE, this setting is not specific to the current application and will be applied globally on the device. This feature can only be reset by performing a device warm boot.

Note: On the Zebra MC40, F1 is mapped to the Volume Down button, F2 to the Volume UP button and F3 to the Search button.

Interaction between FunctionKeysCapturable and EnableFunctionKey_X is shown in the table below.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disabled
  • 1 - Enabled

Example


<EnableFunctionKey_F1 value="1"/>

EnableApplicationKey_X

Applies to Android and WM/CE. Specifies which Application keys (numbered A1 through A16) should be enabled (all are disabled by default). For each key to be enabled, define a tag using EnableApplicationKey_X, replacing the ‘X’ with the key being enabled. For example, to enable key A5, the tag should include EnableApplicationKey_A5 as below. See the sample Config.xml file in user docs for correct branch placement. The "P" keys on Enterprise Tablet will be referred to as "F" keys in config file.

Notes

  • Requires a pre-load of the KeyCapture module; disabled by default.
  • Applies to Android and WM/CE devices.
  • Application-key mapping is device-specific; behavior may vary from one device to another.
  • This setting is not specific to an application. When enabled, settings are applied globally to the device.
  • On Zebra MC40, F1 is mapped to the Volume Down button, F2 to the Volume UP button and F3 to the Search button.
  • This feature can only be reset by performing a device warm boot.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disabled
  • 1 - Enabled

Example


<EnableApplicationKey_A5 value="1"/>

Defines the amount of time (in milliseconds) the application should wait to establish communication with the relevant server (as opposed to waiting for a page to fully load) before displaying the ‘bad link’ message. If the destination is unreachable, the bad link message might be displayed before the timeout is reached. The navigation timeout will not be invoked when navigating to an application’s start page. The recommended best practice is to store the first page locally to avoid connectivity issues at startup. The app can then redirect to an online page if desired.

Possible Values:

  • Timeout in milliseconds (default value = 45000)

Example


<NavTimeout value="30000"/>

Screen orientation

AutoRotate

Controls automatic rotation of screen orientation between portrait and landscape modes. When disabled, the orientation of the display will not change when the device is rotated.

Preloads

Preload

Defines plug-ins to be pre-loaded rather than loading as needed by a program function. Pre-loading prevents application lag when a program function is called for the first time. For example, when Barcode.enable is called by an app, a slight lag will be seen as the Barcode DLL loads into memory. Specify a Preload tag for each module to be loaded when Enterprise Browser starts up. While multiple modules may be defined in the same DLL, list all pre-loaded modules for maximum benefit. For memory-constrained devices, pre-load all required modules to prevent an out-of-memory condition during execution. Does not apply to the Enterprise Tablet; plug-ins are integral to Enterprise Browser on this platform.

Possible Values:

  • Module name

Application

MixedContentMode

Applies only to Android devices running Lollipop and higher. Controls loading of content from insecure sites based on the security level of the originating app. For example, if the app is loaded from a site secured with https://, MIXED_CONTENT_NEVER_ALLOW mode will block subsequent content requests that do not originate from similarly secured sites.

  • MIXED_CONTENT_NEVER_ALLOW - Most secure option. WebView prevents apps loaded from a secure origin to load content from an insecure origin.

  • MIXED_CONTENT_ALWAYS_ALLOW - Least secure option. WebView allows an app from a secure origin to load content from all origins, secure or insecure.

  • MIXED_CONTENT_COMPATIBILITY_MODE - Security not explicitly defined. Depending on its origin, some content will be allowed and some will be blocked. This mode is designed to provide a measure of security for apps that cannot predict or control the origin of content to be rendered.

Zebra recommends using MIXED_CONTENT_NEVER_ALLOW for maximum security.

BadLinkURI

Specifies the "badlink" URI file to be displayed when:

  1. An error occurs when attempting to navigate to a page (i.e. there's no network connection)
  2. A page times out (according to the timeout interval set in NavTimeout)
  3. The user presses the stop button.

The browser will automatically append the query string value "badlink" containing the URL of the page that could not be reached, and 'stop=true' if the page was loaded because the user pressed the stop button. The page specified in the badlink setting should be a device-resident file using the file:// protocol so it’s accessible by the browser.

Known issues: If the device has no network connection, a navigation timeout message may be displayed on Windows Mobile devices that use the IE engine. On CE5 and CE6, the IE engine will truncate the request variables when navigation to a badlink occurs and the reason for the failure might not be displayed.

Possible Values:

  • Fully qualified path and file name

Note: The file systems of some operating systems are case-sensitive. For cross-platform compatibility, letter case for URL, file and path references in the Config.xml file should be identical to those of the sources.

Example


<BadLinkURI value="file://%INSTALLDIR%/badlink.html"/>

EnableSSL3

Applies to WM/CE with Zebra Webkit only. Controls whether Secure Sockets Layer v3.0 will be used. The Zebra Webkit is shipped with SSL3 disabled by default to protect against the POODLE attack vulnerability.

UserAgent

Stores information about the device’s operating environment to allow web sites to tailor content for optimal presentation. UserAgent data can be specified as true values, variables, or in any combination of the two. Variables differ by platform and by Android version.

Warning: This parameter can present "spoofing" or other security concerns when the UserAgent values reported to a server do not match those of the device. For example, false data could allow a mobile device to view content intended only for desktop computers.

Possible Values:

  • String (as defined in examples below); accepts true values, variables or a combination

Android UserAgent

The <UserAgent> tag values are extracted from system information on the device and used by Android to configure the Android UserAgent string. Zebra highly recommends following the version-specific syntax, specifications and substitution variables for UserAgent values detailed here. If the <UserAgent> tag is left unspecified or not present in the Config.xml file, the UserAgent string will be populated with the default Android WebView settings. Notice that the user-agent string syntax varies from one Android version to another. Variables are defined in the section that follows.

KitKat and higher

<UserAgent value="Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android %%AndroidVersion%%; %%DeviceModel%% Build/%%BuildNumber%%) AppleWebKit/%w (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/%e Chrome/%c Mobile Safari/%w MAC=%%MAC%% ESN=%%ESN%%" />
Jelly Bean

<UserAgent value="Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android %%AndroidVersion%%; %%Locale%%; %%DeviceModel%% Build/%%BuildNumber%%) AppleWebKit/%w (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/%e Mobile Safari/%w"/>
Android Variables
  • %%AndroidVersion%% - Android version on the device (i.e. "4.4.3")
  • %%DeviceModel%% - device model (i.e. "TC700H")
  • Build/%%BuildNumber%% - BSP/Build version on the device
  • %%Locale%% - locale currently selected on the device (i.e. "en_US")
  • AppleWebKit/%w - AppleWebkit webkit version
  • Version/%e - KHTML webkit version
  • Chrome/%c - Chrome webkit version
  • Mobile Safari /%w- Mobile Safari webkit version

In addition, the custom-defined values listed below can be added to the end of the UserAgent string. Zebra recommends using the example strings below.

  • %%MAC%% - Wi-Fi MAC address on the device
  • %%ESN%% - serial number (ESN) of the device
KitKat and higher

<UserAgent value="Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android %%AndroidVersion%%; %%DeviceModel%% Build/%%BuildNumber%%) AppleWebKit/%w (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/%e Chrome/%c Mobile Safari/%w MAC=%%MAC%% ESN=%%ESN%%" />
Jelly Bean

<UserAgent value="Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android %%AndroidVersion%%; %%Locale%%; %%DeviceModel%% Build/%%BuildNumber%%) AppleWebKit/%w (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/%e Mobile Safari/%w MAC=%%MAC%% ESN=%%ESN%%"/>
Android Notes
  • To detect the platform, it is necessary to have platform information in the UserAgent string.
  • If platform information is not found, Enterprise Browser device capability APIs might be inoperable.
  • In such cases, Enterprise Browser will add "Android" to the end of the user-defined UserAgent string.
  • If the <UserAgent> tag is left unspecified or not present in the Config.xml file, the UserAgent string will be populated with the default Android WebView settings.
  • Also see General Notes, below.

Windows Mobile/CE UserAgent

Example WM/CE

<UserAgent value="Mozilla/5.0 (WebKit; U; /%p) AppleWebKit/%w (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/%e Mobile Safari/%w" />
Windows Mobile/CE UserAgent String

Variables are extracted from the system information on the device (as defined below) and used at runtime to create the UserAgent string.

Windows Mobile/CE Variables
  • %p – Platform name (i.e. “Windows CE" + version number)
  • %w – Webkit version
  • %e – Zebra WebKit version
PocketBrowser 2.1+

The default UserAgent values for PocketBrowser 2.1 and higher was changed to work with a greater number of server configurations. Prior to PocketBrowser 2.1, the default UserAgent values were “Mozilla/5.0, AppleWebKit (KHTML, i.e. Gecko), Motorola Webkit, Safari.” Apps that the IE rendering engine must use the older default value; the UserAgent cannot be set to a custom value.

General Notes

  • Zebra recommends strict adherence to the platform-specific UserAgent settings and substitution variables detailed here.
  • The order and format of the UserAgent string should not vary from those recommended above.
  • True (non-variable) values can be used in combination with substitution variables.
  • If true values are used, take extra care to ensure that values are correct.
  • Some servers implement the UserAgent string based on the string provided by a visiting client, thereby helping to ensure server-side compatibility with as many client-side UserAgents as possible.

ViewportEnabled

Note: Enterprise Browser supports only a single PEM certificate file. If multiple certificates must be passed to the Webkit browser on WM/CE, the contents of multiple .pem certificates can be combined into a single file using a text editor. The combined file can then be specified in the CaFile parameter.

Possible Values:

  • file name

Example


<CaFile value="cert-file-name"/>

VerifyPeerCertificate

Controls whether server certificates will be verified against the internal certificates. Enabled by default. Useful for debugging, a value of 0 (disabled) is equivalent to automatically clicking ‘OK’ on a web browser’s dialog when requesting approval for an untrusted certificate. It is strongly recommended that this feature be enabled for deployment.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disable Peer certificate verification
  • 1 - Enable Peer certificate verification

Example


<VerifyPeerCertificate value="1"/>

ClientCertPath

Applies to Enterprise Browser 1.5 and higher on Windows Mobile/CE with Webkit engine only. Specifies the path to certificate (.pem) file(s) requested by a server for client authentication when connecting via https://. Certificate files should contain no more than one certificate each. Expired certificates are ignored. See the Certificates guide for help creating certificates.

Possible Values:

  • fully qualified path to client certificate (.pem) file(s)

Example


<ClientCertPath value="\Program Files\EnterpriseBrowser\Certs"/>

NetworkCookieDatabase

Specifies the location of the database to hold persistent cookies, if desired. If the specified file does not exist, one will be created. Persistent cookies will be loaded from this file and saved back to it when Enterprise Browser exits. If the file is read-only, it will not be overwritten. If not specified, cookies will not persist. Case sensitive.

Possible Values:

  • Fully qualified local path

Note: The file systems of some operating systems are case-sensitive. For cross-platform compatibility, letter case for URL, file and path references in the Config.xml file should be identical to those of the sources.

Example


<NetworkCookieDatabase value="file:///my-cookie-db"/>

Cache

Possible Values:

  • LOAD_DEFAULT - use cache unless expired; then load from network (default)
  • LOAD_CACHE_ELSE_NETWORK - use available cache even if expired; otherwise use network
  • LOAD_CACHE_ONLY - use cache only; do not load from network
  • LOAD_NO_CACHE - load from network only; do not use cache

Example


<SetCacheMode value="LOAD_DEFAULT"/>        

DeleteCacheOnExit

Applies only to Android devices running KitKat and higher. Controls whether to erase contents of browser cache when exiting the app. Disabled by default.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disabled (default)
  • 1 - Enabled

Example


<DeleteCacheOnExit value="0"/>

DiskCache

Applies to Windows Mobile/CE with Webkit engine only. Specifies the maximum amount of device storage (in MB) to be used for the web-page cache, which can improve page-access times on subsequent visits to a site. The disk cache persists after EB quits. Enabled by default in Enterprise Browser 1.5 and higher. To disable, remove or comment this tag.

Note: Cached pages expire. See the DiskCacheExpTimeFactor parameter for more information.

Possible Values:

  • Whole integer values to specify cache size (in MBs)

Example


<DiskCache  VALUE="5MB"/>

DiskCachePath

Applies to Windows Mobile/CE with Webkit engine only. Allows the storage location for cached browser pages and resources to be changed from the default setting. Use this parameter only to change the cache directory from its default of \Program Files\EnterpriseBrowser\. Disabled by default. If a directory in the specified path does not exist, it will be created.

Possible Values:

  • Fully qualified path to the desired disk cache directory

Example


// Default location of cached WM/CE Webkit resources: 
<DiskCachePath  VALUE="file://%INSTALLDIR%\EnterpriseBrowser\" />

DiskCacheExpTimeFactor

Applies to Windows Mobile/CE with Webkit engine only. Specifies the acceptable span of time past which a cached resource is no longer considered "fresh" by Enterprise Browser. Applies only if the RFC-standard method is indeterminate (see Note). This value is expressed as a percentage (from 0-100) calculated using the difference between the "Last-Modified" value of the cached resource and the date and time the resource is accessed by Enterprise Browser. Larger numbers keep cached resources fresh longer; smaller numbers cause them to be reloaded more often. A value of "0" causes all resources to reload with every access, effectively disabling the disk cache. Default value is 10 (percent).

Note: To determine the freshness of a resource, Enterprise Browser first reads the "max-age" response directive or "Expires" field in the server response header. If one of those parameters indicates that a cached resource has expired, EB requests a refresh by sending an "If-Modified-Since" request to the server and reloads the resource based on the response. If neither attribute is configured, EB looks for a "Last-Modified" header for calculating the freshness lifetime using the heuristic time factor described above. For more information, please refer to the IETF's definition of Freshness.

Possible Values:

  • Whole integer values from 0-100

Example


// Default value of 10% is shown:
<DiskCacheExpTimeFactor  VALUE="10" />

Device keys

EnableCtrlKey_X

Specifies which control-key combinations (copy, paste, etc.) should be enabled. To enable a control-key combination, define a tag using EnableCtrlKey_X, replacing the ‘X’ with the key being enabled. For example, to enable copying with control-C, the tag should include EnableCtrlKey_C as below. See the sample Config.xml file in user guide for correct branch placement. All CTRL key combinations are disabled on Windows CE by default.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - Disabled
  • 1 - Enabled

Example


<EnableCtrlKey_C value="1"/>

Default MetaTags

MetaTag

Permits a default meta tag to be specified so that a tag required by the application need not be present on every HTML page. Set a default tag by specifying the tag’s module, followed by the tilde character (~) and the properties of the module to set, as specified in EMML 1.1. If the meta tag is present in both the configuration and a loaded page, the page will take priority. Only persistent tags can be set logically in the configuration. Tag persistence is covered in the "additional information" section in the help file. Meta tag properties and their possible values are explained in the corresponding API.

Possible Values:

  • [Module]~[property to set]

Example


// Make the "Quit" button visible on every page: 
<DefaultMetaTags>
...
    <MetaTag value="QuitButton~visibility:visible;width:50;"/>
...
</DefaultMetaTags>

For example, if set to 80, new tabs will stop being created when physical memory usage on the device reaches or exceeds 80 percent of the total available. Once the defined limit is reached, the NativeTabbar.create API callback will contain tabEvent = onTabNewError.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - 100 (percent; 100 = unlimited)

Example


<NewTabPhysicalMemLimit value="50"/>

NewTabVirtualMemLimit

Controls whether a new Tab will be created using the NativeTabbar.create API when a virtual memory usage percentage is hit. For example, if set to 80, new tabs will stop being created when the virtual memory usage reaches or exceeds 80 percent of the total available. Once the defined limit is reached, the NativeTabbar.create API callback will contain tabEvent = onTabNewError.

Possible Values:

  • 0 - 100 (percent; 100 = unlimited).

Example


<NewTabVirtualMemLimit value="50"/>

ZoomKey

ZoomInKey

Remarks

ScanDecodeWav on Android Platform

If ScanDecodeWav configuration paramater contains '.wav'/'.ogg' filename same as system filename, then the system '.wav'/'.ogg' file will be selected for playing when a scanned barcode is successfully decoded.

Battery Polling on Enterprise Tablet

Due to its asynchronous battery notification, the Enterprise Tablet does not support BatteryRefresh. This has the effect of launching a bateryEvent only when the battery level changes. This functionality has been implemented in place of polling as a means of maximizing battery power.

Case Sensitivity

Note: The file systems of some operating systems are case-sensitive. For cross-platform compatibility, letter case for URL, file and path references in the Config.xml file should be identical to those of the sources.

DataWedge-Enterprise Browser Conflicts

This issue applies to Android only. Under certain conditions involving Enterprise Browser, scanning with the DataWedge application on Zebra Android devices is disabled. For complete details, see the DataWedge Usage Guide.

FunctionKeysCapturable-EnableFunctionKey Interaction

Applies to only Windows Mobile/CE devices.

On Windows Mobile/CE, full control is given to the developer over how the application handles function keys, but such settings persist only until the next warm boot. Also, the default behavior of function keys will vary from one device to another. On the MC75a, for example, the red and green phone keys also represent F3 and F4 keys, and on many devices the volume keys also can be mapped as function keys.

Not all function keys will revert to default operating system behavior, however, and unblocking certain function keys might expose the underlying operating system. For example, exposing the red and green phone keys on some devices will grant access to the WM/CE Start menu.

The table below shows the behavior of Enterprise Browser when function keys are pressed given certain configuration settings:

Function Keys Capturable = TRUE Function Keys Capturable = FALSE
Enable Function Key = TRUE
  • All Function Keys can be captured by the Key Capture Module
  • Function Key will not have its default Operating system behavior
  • Function Keys with default OS behavior can not be captured by the Key Capture Module
  • Function Keys without default OS behavior can be captured by the Key Capture Module
  • Function Key will have its default Operating system behavior (if any)
Enable Function Key = FALSE
  • All Function Keys can be captured by the Key Capture Module
  • Function Key will not have its default Operating system behavior
  • All Function Keys can not be captured by the Key Capture Module
  • Function Key will not have its default Operating system behavior (if any)

This table applies to Windows Mobile and Windows CE devices only.

IntentReceiver

The IntentReciever tag includes parameters to enable/disable the Intent function and to define the Action and Category of the Intent itself. The syntax for these parameters is as follows:


<IntentReceiver>
    <EnableReceiver value="1"/>
    <IntentAction   value="com.zebra.sample.action"/>
    <IntentCategory value="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
</IntentReceiver>

From the target side, here's what the relevant JavaScript code for sending an intent might look like:

    
    Intent intent = new Intent("com.zebra.sample.action");
    intent.putExtra("key", "intent");
