Description

When pressing "join other network" button in settings app connection dialog appears, but "connect" button do nothing.

Maybe it makes sense to temporarily disable "join other network" while it isn't working.

Ian, might be something for you to have a look at? Seems there's no onTap handler

Put some UI handling in to manage this. See https://github.com/corpuscle/org.webosports.app.settings/commit/9b1bc839de30006670d083eca642f89606176017, on branch WiFi.
For consistency with the rest of the system, I have ignored Enterprise WPA here too. You know, for now. One thing at a time.

Unfortunately, WifiManager wants the "path" of the network to make a connection. The user only knows the SSID so this looks like missing functionality in WifiManager to me.

My hidden network was visible to the Settings app and the code made an attempt to connect to it this evening. Getting closer.

This button now provides functionality to successfully connect to hidden networks.
