Action - Show Custom Widget Overlay
The action Show Custom Widget Overlay displays a custom Widget (defined within Automagic) on an arbitrary position on the display. The overlay is also shown on the lock screen on many Android versions.
Warning: This function is not officially supported by Android and might not work on all devices.
- Show the battery percentage as a semi-transparent rectangle over the statusbar.
- Prevent accidental touches by displaying an overlay that covers the entire screen.
- Shade the screen to a darker level than the built-in screen brightness control allows by displaying a semi transparent overlay covering the entire screen.
The same identification can be used in multiple actions to display the same overlay in different configurations depending on situation (e.g.different settings when in landscape or portrait).
This option might not work on all devices, especially on newer versions of Android (Android 8+).
This option can prevent certain apps like video players to temporarily override the screen brightness.
Older Version of Android only respect this option when option Use accessibility service is enabled.
