Hi Terry,
I only see mobile commands/messages/functions of which none of them have any data (syntax/platform/example/etc) associated with them.
Ok so touching on a letter I do see the other entry's, but still no content.

Why are some highlighted and others not?

Search seems just to stall.

Hi simon,

Please advise what is the brand name and model of your device?

Please try double click on the selected item or select the item and swipe from left to right (or right to left), then you can see the detail of the selected item.

Regards

Hi terry,
HTC Wildfire s
Swiping was how I saw the empty data, all that is shown is syntax/platform/example/etc. no content just the words.

Search just stalled out on me as well.

Since it's free why don't you post the stack?

Hi Simon,

It use some 3rd party tools. So I can not post the souce.

It seem my apps cannot find the database, I will try to find out what cause the problem in HTC device.

I had test on Asus, acer, Xiaomi, samsung, sony and etc. does not have this problem. May be there is some special setting in HTC device.

What android version in the HTC device?

Regards

Terry Ho

Hi Simon,

When you use search to search some word, does the datagrid have result?

If there is result, then I think it is HTML problem. What is language and location setting in your device?

Hi Simon,

I had test my apps on different device, but did not have you situation.

My apps when first start, it will copy the database file into the internal memory. (I.e. Specialfolderpath("documents")). After copy, it can let the user search the key word.

I think in you case, it may be out of memory to copy the file.

Would you direct contact me at terryho at hotmail?

I would like to send some test file for testing.

Regards

Terry ho

Well scrolling is absolutely horrid on my Galaxy S4. I suggest you put any scrolling fields in a browser control so you can take advantage of native scrolling. it will be a lot smoother and less work on your end

Thank you for putting that together, terryho.

I'm excited about the prospect of using it, but I'm having the same issue Simon reported.

Is the project open source? If so I'd be happy to see if I can lend a hand exploring more memory-friendly ways to chunk the data.

Hi all,

Thanks your comment.

I had submit to app store. Now waiting their approve.

Please update to the latest version. Which fix the scrolling problem. It should use large variable to detect touch moving.

Due to I use some third party tools. So I can not open the source code.

There is a bug in the native scroll, which go back from the detail page. It will not go to the last scroll position. This will only happen in android device.

Regards

Terry Ho
