I own a rooted Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 smartphone and experience phantom touches in a horizontal rectangular zone on my touchscreen.
To fix this, I am trying to create a transparent blocking overlay scene via tasker, but am unable to do it. I can create dialog and activity scenes and they display properly if I create an action to show the scene.
However, if I try to make any overlay scene, nothing happens at all when I click the play button to display the scene. I do see a green dot, but nothing happens even after clicking the play button repeatedly. Could someone help me with this or suggest me another method to block touch input from specific region?
If I click play after the green dot appears, I get a red dot with this message-
23.30.36/TD data: haveStatic: Passive true 23.30.36/TD getStatic: Passive load true 23.30.36/TD getStatic: Passive load: true 23.30.36/E doShowScene: scene already visible: Nzj
As an example, even if I take this simple scene, overlay doesn't work.
Scene: Nzj P:1062x168 L:1062x168 Orientation: User Background Colour: #AE480505 Action Bar Style: System Title: Nzj Subtitle: Icon: null Tab Labels:
Edit: It's working now. Just add to give tasker the permission to open popup windows. I don't know why it did not request for the permission itself.
