Forum / Remote Desktop Manager Android - Feature Request

Samsung deX

Hi!

Any chance that Remote Desktop Manager for Android can add support for the Samsung DEX enviroment?

Tried it briefly and the screen is locked into a mobile like frame in the middle of the screen, no way to resize the appscreen. If it was DEX enabled it would allow resize of the application.

Also, when starting a RDP session within RDM for Android it starts inside the app, not as a external (using for exampel MS RDP client) process - which on the DEX station & a 24" screen makes it useless to view the full server screen inside a tiny box in the middle of the screen.

As non programmer - it seems easy to enable the app to be resizeable.

Hi Kaj,

Thank you for the information. Yes, this property should add the multi-Window support.

Unfortunately, it is more complicated than that. Currently, the application is built to support features up to Marshmallow.

The application has to be built to support Android Nugat features on new and older devices. This requires many tests for many devices and os versions across the entire application.

Very often bugs or incompatibilities are found that have to be fixes. The hardware keyboard support also needs to be improved.

The task should not be complex. Still, it requires time.

Samsung DEX is a very cool and interesting technology and we would definitely like to support it! It has been included in our todo list. We will attack it as soon as we can.

Thanks again.

Has there been any changes to the support? Installed the current version (released a couple of days ago) and it doesnt work in regards to that it opens the remote session within the frame of the RDM for Android, this in Dex on a Samsung Galaxy S10.

No way to resize the frame unless I told DEX to allow force all apps to resize window - which does seem to indicate that RDM doesnt provide that support, but DEX ....

Hi,

We have found that the problem is related to the Dex version associated with the Galaxy S10. It is a more recent Dex version and we have to make some changes in our application to make it compatible with this new version.
