Welcome to the weekly blog post. This time lets focus on some mobile improvements:
Mobile Dialog Positioning
qx.Mobile‘s Dialogs and Popups got some layout improvements. The Anchor Dialogs are now always visible, even when their bounds are outside the viewport. In this case the dialog is centered on screen. Additionally, the placement logic of popups and dialogs was refactored and optimized to better use available layout space.
For instance, try the latest mobile showcase in your desktop browser (Chrome, Firefox, …), open the Picker widget and resize the browser window. The Picker widgets adjusts its position to the available space.
Mobile TextArea scrollable on Touch Devices
One typical problem of the native HTML TextArea is that it’s not scrollable on several mobile devices (for example on iOS 4 + 5, Android). We finally solved this problem: If you add a
qx.ui.mobile.form.TextArea to a
qx.ui.mobile.form.Form, it is automatically wrapped into a scrollable container. Check out the latest mobile showcase.
