We currently have a RAP application and are looking at extending some features to the mobile platforms. Our initial testing found that the support is not there on the iPhone, has anyone else had any success with this?

Testing the Android browser (which is also webkit based) using the emulator found that everything seemed to behave properly. The only annoyance was that the keyboard would popup in certain circumstances.

Testing the qooxdoo 0.7 showcase yielded somewhat better results with most controls working properly. Most notably, the combo widget selection did not work properly.

Specific issues we are having when testing with the controls demo:

When clicking on on buttons the iPhone flashes a semi-transparent grey/black background. This does not happen with the qooxdoo 0.7 showcase.

Buttons are often difficult to click, taking several attempts before it would work properly. Also possibly related, the checkbox must be clicked once to give it focus and a second time to toggle the state.

Selection in Combo boxes does not work, same as qooxdoo. Also the extra tabs menu when you click the chevrons has the same behavior.

Hi Cole,

Safari/iPhone is not yet among our supported browsers. We will happily
accept patches for a better appearance on mobile devices, but as long as
we don't decide to support those, we can hardly spend time by ourselves
on this topic.

"By default, Mobile Safari briefly displays a translucent gray box over
clickable objects that have been tapped" [1]. For whatever reason, this
area covers the entire shell in RAP. This page also offers a workaround
that disables the translucent area by means of CSS.

I just upgraded to the latest OS version. Couldn't reproduce this before
but now I can. Could this be an issue with this Safari version?

Regards, Ralf
