Scroller with a datagrid

Post by pTom » Wed Jan 08, 2014 8:29 pm

I have searched around quite a bit and tested out some things but am coming up empty on this one:

I would like for my data grid (form, not a table) to scroll by touch on a mobile device. Advice?

I have looked at and tried the coding example in the live code lessons. I have also looked in the forums and am coming up empty.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Tom,

The following example, created by Elanor, should be able to help you with setting up a native mobile scroller for use with a datagrid-

Thanks, Neil, I took a look at it and noticed that her data grid is a table and not a form. I have seen elsewhere on the forum that other people have struggled with data grid forms. Should I be using a data grid table instead of a form?

If so, I learned how to import dynamically created data into a form but not a table and am noticing that a table imports data somewhat differently than a table. How could I import data from a server that is added to each week/day and the table would need to update accordingly?

Hi Tom,

Using a form datagrid with a native scroller should not be a problem.

I have amended Elanors stack to a form datagrid and attached it to this reply

Form datagrids have worked great in you application so far and I would recommend continuing to use them as this will save having to re-script specific areas of your application.

Kind Regards,
