How to disable TitleView?

Hi @damencho,

I want to disable the title view in the meeting for all participants including the moderator also. I am testing this in developer code (github) and when I active diableTitleview: true, it’s visible still and working fine. Is there any way to disable the title view permanently? So I will have only a stage view,

Thanks

Disable the button:

  1. // ‘tileview’,
    it is by default like this that means off (pic 2).

Yep.

But it is not disabling. Still, the title view button is showing and working properly.
@damencho

Works here, it hides the button.
Are you able to hide any other button?

yes, other buttons are hiding.

And just this you cannot hide, that is strange …

Hello @absar,

// If true, tile view will not be enabled automatically when the participants count threshold is reached.
disableTileView: true,

In my self-hosted environment, when this configuration is set to true - the tileview is disabled and is not possible to be toggled/enabled anymore.

@damencho, is that the correct behavior of the disableTileView parameter?

Because my interpretation in:

// If true, tile view will not be enabled automatically when the participants count threshold is reached.

is only for the tileview not to be automatically enabled when a 3rd person joins a meeting.
However, not only that it is not being enabled automatically, it’s now not possible for tileview to be toggled/enabled anymore if this parameter is true.

I also tested this in meet.jit.si by passing the disableTileView=true config in the meeting URL.

Is this a bug or really the expected behavior?

IiRC that setting disables it for good, not just the automatic behavior. The comment might be a bit misleading.

We might need to go through the code to check though.

Dear @saghul,

Thanks for replying and for the intent to check the code.
I hope it’s just a bug and the intended use case of the disableTileView parameter is what the comment describes.
I really like to just disable the automatic switching to TileView, but retain the ability for the users to toggle between views.

Kind regards,
