White space (band) at the top of my app

Hey thunkers, this is my first post, even though I am being using the forum for the last two weeks and it’s been really useful, I started to use Thunkable the last month and I am already in love with it, I just hope we get to work with extension asap as they were completely a game charger for the original Thunkable as I realized reading the forum.

I wanted to know if someone could help me, please see attached:

I am removing the top phone info to get my first app full screen, but I am getting this white space at the top of it, I am developing in a iPhone 8 , so I can not test it in other phones, I am not sure if this is because of the notches on iPhone 10 and new android phones, do you guys know something about it? Is there a way to color that space? Writing this. Just thought, is this the color of my screen background, I can’t check right away, I will do it tonight and will let you know, in the meantime, does someone happen to know?

Hi @Carlos_Escobar,

It’s a little tricky to see with the white background, but I get what you mean.

I haven’t tried this myself, but I’d recommend looking at this first:

Hey @domhnallohanlon , thank you so much , I will try it the way they say it in that post. I tried to search different ways what I need it, but never thought of “space above top tab navigator “ :see_no_evil:.

I know its difficult to se the withe background, that is why I said “(You would need to click the image in order to see the white band, because of the white background of the forum)” :blush:

Did you try changing the background colour of your screen?

Might be the same issue I noticed on mine and what I had to do was click on the top screen, then on the property section scrolled down to Padding section and if you noticed the TOP padding value is like a disabled zero so what I did was type in 0 and the top white space disappeared.

Hope this helps


Thank you guys. I will check tonight and will let you know.

I did a combination of background color and negative top margin in the screens, I had to do this because for each screen the value was different and also the way android and ios were applying this margin was also different.
