Hello everyone.

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.

Opening a scene in a new window

edited July 2017 in Questions And Answers

Hi experts,

I am currently building an application in Unity that scans QR-codes and displays information afterwards. I display that information on a panel in a new scene. However, this scene is loaded without any borders etc. The QR-scanner doesn't have a window like that and also shouldn't have one, but I want the information scene to be in a window like the one in the image below.

Does anyone have any tips, suggestions to help me on my way?

Kinds regards
Matthijs

    I think you will need to open a second app rather than a new scene.

    You could have multiple windows in an immersive scene but it appears you are not going for an immersive scene as you want windows from outside of your app open like Skype.

    You should be able to open a second app from your app. I don't have the code handy but one of our devs worked on a prototype of doing that.
