Xamarin.Android: Hide StatusBar and Notification in Fullscreen mode

I am trying to hide statusbar and notification in fullscreen mode. User should not be able to pull/swipe down status/notification bar in Xamarin android.

In native android it is working fine with below property.

View decorView = getWindow().getDecorView(); 

getWindow().setFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.TYPE_APPLICATION_OVERLAY, WindowManager.LayoutParams.TYPE_APPLICATION_OVERLAY);

Equivalent to TYPE_APPLICATION_OVERLAY in xamarin not able to get.

Any solution for Xamarin.Android?

I have tried below properties for xamarin:

View decorView = Window.DecorView;
var uiOptions = (int)decorView.SystemUiVisibility;
var newUiOptions = (int)uiOptions;      
newUiOptions |= (int)SystemUiFlags.HideNavigation;
newUiOptions |= (int)SystemUiFlags.LayoutHideNavigation;
newUiOptions |= (int)SystemUiFlags.LayoutFullscreen;
newUiOptions |= (int)SystemUiFlags.Fullscreen;
newUiOptions |= (int)SystemUiFlags.ImmersiveSticky; 
decorView.SystemUiVisibility = (StatusBarVisibility)newUiOptions;


Help will be appreciated. Thank you

    Try using this code sir

    var uiOpTions =
                            SystemUiFlags.HideNavigation |
                            SystemUiFlags.LayoutHideNavigation |
                            SystemUiFlags.LayoutFullscreen |
                            SystemUiFlags.Fullscreen |
                            SystemUiFlags.LayoutStable |
                        Window.DecorView.SystemUiVisibility = (StatusBarVisibility)uiOpTions;

    The only problem in that is, if the focus is gone on a certain method you call this codes, the navigation and status bar will show again. You need to add this to every your gonna click or tap like button, spinner, ect.
