We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Hands No Longer Detected After Switching Back to 3D View From 2D View
I am using Holotoolkit 2017.4.1 and Unity 2017.3.1f1 in my project.
My project uses the ApplicationViewManager class from the Holotoolkit to navigate to a 2D xaml page that displays a WebView and then return to the 3D Unity view by pressing a button on the xaml page.
The app uses a tap gesture to navigate to the xaml page by calling the LaunchXaml function from the object being focused/gazed at.
The problem that I have is that when the CallBack function brings the user back to the 3D Unity app, hands are no longer detected. The user is no longer able to use any tap or manipulation gestures.
If it were just the navigation tap that was effected I would work around by using speech, but since all gesture functionality is lost there doesn't seem to be a way to work around this issue while preserving the key functionality of the app.
If anyone has encountered/solved this problem before I would appreciate any assistance you may be able to provide.
