LPD_CUST Navigation Mode Behavior


I am trying to open my custom SAPUI5 app in the Fiori Launchpad as a headerless window.  I have tried every "Navigation Mode" option in LPD_CUST, but it is leaving the header in place when the app is opened in both Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Internet Explorer.  In Chrome, the header does not appear when the app is opened, like expected.  Does anyone have a suggestion in how to get this desired behavior in Internet Explorer?  Below are screenshots demonstrating the issue and settings:

Internet Explorer 11.0.30:

Google Chrome 49.0:


Thanks for your help!

    Hi Owen,

    Ideally we add headerless URL at the end : &sap-ushell-config=headerless

    Irrespective of browsers it should work, if there are issues like chrome its working and IE not. Then please revisit your SAP UI5 library version and implement relevant notes to upgrade the library.

    • This would technically work, if the only goal was to not have the header show up on the app.  However, when you do this, you are bypassing many of the benefits of the Gateway Server and the Fiori Launchpad.  Plus, using a standalone URL instead of a semantic object means the app automatically opens up in a separate tab.  I want the app to be full integrated in the Fiori Launchpad, but just not have the header showing when it is open.

    • It is occurring in IE and Edge both, but IE is all we care about.  Do those settings at the bottom of LPD_CUST in the "Portal Parameters" section only apply to the app being viewed inside the SAP Enterprise Portal, not when using just the standalone Fiori Launchpad?

    Any other suggestions on this?  We are going live with a custom Dashboard soon, and would like to save the screen space by having the app appear without the header in the dashboard.  Thanks!
