2. Customizing In-Meeting UI and Controls

The app can control some elements of the Zoom meeting UI. The following list details what aspects of the Zoom In-Meeting UI are customizable by the app. Please check the functions listed in the Zoom Developer Guide for a more comprehensive list.

  • Meeting title and meeting ID (you can show an application specific ID here)
  • Show and hide the bottom toolbar in the in-meeting UI
  • Control the position of the meeting window
  • Audio controls such as muting audio and video on entry
  • Select specific camera and audio devices
    • The app can pass the device handle to the Zoom stack
  • Show and hide chat interface
  • Control screen share or share a specific window upon launching a meeting
  • Video layout controls
  • Remote control functions

The app can get the view of the Meeting UI and set the position so that the In-Meeting UI can be set in one place on the screen. The app can then display other data using the rest of the screen. Use the GetMeetingUIWnd function to get the window handle and the SetMeetingUIPos function to set the position.

3. Localization

The stack currently supports the following languages:

  • English
  • Japanese
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)

You can localize the stack to other languages by translating the strings provided in the Resource files (sdk_demo folder and called sdk_demo.rc).

When doing translations please take into consideration that long translated strings might impact the UI.
