Re: Force keypad to stay open on card...

Thanks for your suggestion, I had not considered making my own keypad, but I guess that would work.

It would be nice if there was a way to make the default Android keypad to work consistently.

Re: Change Height of Column Header in DataGrid

Thank you both for your advice. Obviously I need to go back and review the documentation in detail. Right now I'm still finding the DataGrid a bit confusing!

Force keypad to stay open on card...

I have recently been trying to get my app working on Android. I have a card where the user inputs numbers and I use the numeric keypad. It all works fine except... If the user navigates away from the app, say by pressing the hard "home" button on Android, does some stuff then returns to the app, the...

Change Height of Column Header in DataGrid

I made basic use of a DataGrid in my recent project. It worked fine, but when I run the app on Android the Column Header Name text is too tall for the Column Header and this caused the bottom of the Column Header name to get cut off. I was able to easily change the row height in the DataGrid to 25px...

Limit user input in a field...

I have an editable field that contains text like "1234-56". I want users to be able to click on the field and edit the last two digits after the dash, but not the first four digits. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks for any suggestions or advice,

TJ.

Re: Change Text Color in Header Bar...

Thank you for your reply Klaus! I was able to set the text color from colors tab, for some reason I was looking for it in the text tab, duh! However when I enter text as the Title/Label of the Header Widget it is not centered and always appears left justified. I can add spaces in front of the Title ...

Change Text Color in Header Bar...

I used the Header Bar today and it works great. For my color scheme I was hoping to have a black background on the header bar with white text. However it did not appear that there was an option to change the text color. Recently I was using rectangles and they have the option to show the name, but a...

Re: Best Stack Size for various devices...

Thanks for the advice everyone. I will use a stack size of 450px by 800px that should be 9:16 ratio and give me a good idea how it will look on most devices? I guess there isn't a standard size used for mobile development in live code, but would this be close to what other developers use? Thanks, TJ.

Best Stack Size for various devices...

I recently watched the video tutorials for the messaging app and the calculator app. The woman makes the stack size 335px by 667px, and locks the size, stating that this is the size used for an iphone 6. I am wondering how to determine the best stack size to use if I am targeting a device other than...
