Jun 20, 2013
The following Citrix user configuration policy settings control mobility feature settings.
Under ICA > Mobile Experience:
  • Automatic keyboard display
  • Launch touch-optimized desktop
  • Remote the combo box
Under ICA > Client Sensors > Location:
  • Allow applications to use the physical location of the client device

To set the keyboard display behavior

The Automatic keyboard display policy setting determines the behavior of the keyboard during application sessions on mobile devices. By default, a mobile Receiver user must manually open the keyboard. To enable the keyboard to automatically open when an editable field has the focus, set this policy to Allowed. When this setting is allowed, a user can change a Receiver for iOS session setting to prevent the keyboard from automatically opening.

To provide a touch-friendly interface

The Launch touch-optimized desktop policy setting determines the overall Receiver interface behavior. By default, a touch-friendly interface that is optimized for tablet devices is used. To use only the Windows interface, set this policy to Prohibited.

To set the type of combo box displayed

The Remote the combo box policy setting determines the type of combo box displayed during application sessions on mobile devices. To display the device-native combo box control, set this policy to Allowed. When this setting is allowed, a user can change a Receiver for iOS session setting to use the Windows combo box.

To allow applications to use mobile device location information

The Allow applications to use the physical location of the client device policy setting determines whether applications running in a XenApp session on a mobile device are allowed to use the physical location of the client device.

By default, the use of location information is prohibited. To allow use of location information, set this policy to Allowed. When this setting is allowed, a user can prohibit use of location information by denying a Receiver request to access the location. Android and iOS devices prompt at the first request for location information in each session.
