[Mobile] width/height configs on some of the components

Post by MertÇalışkan »

width/height on select component?
width/height on textArea? or even resizable textArea maybe?

Select (drop down) - the width can be resized either via properties or with a mouse:

Looks like it's not possible to change the height - probably a bug.

Text area - you can use the properties or the mouse:

Let me know if this helps.

Mobile components of JQuery Mobile library are stretchable and JQuery is responsible of it's rendering. Such layouting is a great benefit of JQuery Mobile. Because we can be independent from size of display.

I do not see any way to stretch the components. They do not auto-stretch if the internal text is longer than the control -- it just chops off the text. :(

It will not stretch beyond the container the component is in. If possible, please post a picture of what you are trying to do.

Here is a very simple example using the Select Menu. I can't make it the full width of the screen, and there's no way to have it auto-fit based on the text length. Image

It's a jQuery Mobile limitation but there is also a bug. We are working on a workaround.

I am certainly not trying to nag, but I'm wondering if this is in the works at all? I have a project I'd like to run with students this summer but I will need these issues tidied up before I can use Tiggr with it. As it is now, the mobile side is impractical for us to use.

Thanks!
Rob

The problem with a select box rendering is solved (see screenshot).

You can also use "grid" to position components side-by-side. The only limitation - cell size in grid is not adjustable. In other words,it'll be 50/50 for two columns,
33/33/33 for three columns etc. That's a JQuery limitation we plan to have a workaround in the next release.
