iOS: disable swipe to previous screen possible yet?

I want to prevent the user from swiping back to the previous screen on iOS. Is this possible? There was an earlier thread on this topic but it got a bit waylaid into complicated navigation features to prevent it. I’m looking for a setting “Disable swipe back” or similar. Does it exist?

Hey @penny,

My guess is the previous topic discussed was using the Stack Navigator? This is the current (and imop, the ideal) solution for something like this. I can’t seem to find anything on this on the Thunkable GitHub. I suggest you search for/create a feature request.

In the meantime if you’re interested in implementing the Stack Nav solution, I can walk you through the process here.

Insert any kind of If condition in the BackButtonPressed event which will disable this function.

It worked for me on Android and it should behave the same on iOS.

Hey @muneer, welcome to the Community :wave:

Unfortunately this is Android specific and will not work for iOS.

Thank you and yes, it was Stack Navigator. Thanks for the offer but I’m not quite ready for that yet.
