StatusBar

The StatusBar object provides some functions to customize the iOS and Android StatusBar.

⚠️ Report issues on the Apache Cordova issue tracker

Installation

This installation method requires cordova 5.0+

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-statusbar

Older versions of cordova can still install via the deprecated id

cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.statusbar

It is also possible to install via repo url directly ( unstable )

cordova plugin add https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-statusbar.git

Preferences

config.xml

  • StatusBarOverlaysWebView (boolean, defaults to true). On iOS 7, make the statusbar overlay or not overlay the WebView at startup.

    <preference name="StatusBarOverlaysWebView" value="true" />
    
  • StatusBarBackgroundColor (color hex string, no default value). On iOS 7, set the background color of the statusbar by a hex string (#RRGGBB) at startup. If this value is not set, the background color will be transparent.

    <preference name="StatusBarBackgroundColor" value="#000000" />
    
  • StatusBarStyle (status bar style, defaults to lightcontent). On iOS 7, set the status bar style. Available options default, lightcontent, blacktranslucent, blackopaque.

    <preference name="StatusBarStyle" value="lightcontent" />
    

Android Quirks

The Android 5+ guidelines specify using a different color for the statusbar than your main app color (unlike the uniform statusbar color of many iOS 7+ apps), so you may want to set the statusbar color at runtime instead via StatusBar.backgroundColorByHexString or StatusBar.backgroundColorByName. One way to do that would be:

if (cordova.platformId == 'android') {
    StatusBar.backgroundColorByHexString("#333");
}

Hiding at startup

During runtime you can use the StatusBar.hide function below, but if you want the StatusBar to be hidden at app startup, you must modify your app's Info.plist file.

Add/edit these two attributes if not present. Set "Status bar is initially hidden" to "YES" and set "View controller-based status bar appearance" to "NO". If you edit it manually without Xcode, the keys and values are:

<key>UIStatusBarHidden</key>
<true/>
<key>UIViewControllerBasedStatusBarAppearance</key>
<false/>

Methods

This plugin defines global StatusBar object.

Although in the global scope, it is not available until after the deviceready event.

document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {
    console.log(StatusBar);
}
