View Full Version : Android Forms + 0.96

24 Sep 2010, 3:58 AM
Hey guys,

After working with sencha for two months i'm very happy with your framework.
I already deloyed my app on android and iphone and most things work just fine.

Android Forms:
There have been two updates since i'm using sencha, but android forms haven't improved very much, as far as i can tell.
I'm sure it's not easy and i bet you are doing your best to fix android related bugs as soon as possible.

Are there improvements related to android forms in 0.96?

Issues found:
- I'm using passwordfield within formPanel which is not working at all.
- On android 2.2 forms are jumping all the time. I'm using modal formpanels with fixed width and heigth.
(This is not happening on 2.1)

Thanks for your great work!

Hi !
I am also working hard on forms.

Here is what I've found as far :

The forms keeps jumping in Android 2.2
The keyboard layout does not pop back well when touching out (quiet weird as it's a nativ feature)
The form like textfield still appearing when changing view (example in kitchen sink with nested list)

Also, I would like to know how did you manage to post using a mobile ? meaning you are doing cross-domain ajax ? right ?

Thank you,

hey gabrielstuff,

For your keyboard bug: Have you tried forcing blur on a field to hide the keyboard - thats what i did.

I'm writing a mobile client for our existing web-application thats located at mobile.domain.com.
Our API is at domain.com/mobile/, so there was a problem with cross-domain restrictions.
I wrote a simple php script that forwards all requests that go to mobile.domain.com/mobile/ to domain.com/mobile!
So everything is working fine, even in phonegap on android and iphone!

Ok thanks but how do you manage to execute the first script in place.
I mean, you are on the mobile :

1. Then you click on fill the form
2. view of form panel with a submit button (local device)
3. click on submit from local device to example.com/login.php
Here you need something to call this file from your device, right ?

4. you follow the login.php script from example.com/login.php to example.com/db/login_pro.php
To do this, you need first to execute from local the login.php script and so to use a XHR request to this file.

Looking to hear from you.

I'm not sure if i understood your problem.

In my case the app is simply a html5 offline app using the manifest file (mobile.example.com). So it's possible to fire ajax-requests to the same domain. I'm using PHP for session-handling and login. And to enable cross-domain ajax it's easy to simply include your file from the same server or write yourself a proxy using curl with php.

Another solution is JSONP - have tried it?

On mobile.example.com there is a file called mobile.php which is my ajax handler for all requests. So i have a file that includes /live/mobile.php when the request comes to /mobile/mobile.php

Did i get it?

Hi meQ,

I do know why, but it is now working fine.
However, I've got this problem with the form that keep showing up even if they are not selected.
did you find a solution for that ?
Thank you !

What do you mean?
I'm still stuck with the gap problem..

If you click on a form and then go on an other card, a form stay up in front.
You know like this :


Thanks !

for the gap, try with different height.
It works perfect for me.

I add the height AND the code in the other thread, where I check for event and force blur and force to remove thenative scroll.
