Re: Wicket site on Android phone

I also recently find that I need to tweak Wicket Palette component look,
because on Android a multiple select will not show all the options. You have
to click it for selection and after that you can see only the first selected
item no matter how big is the height for select markup. I have written more
about it  here

Re: Wicket site on Android phone

2013-11-08 Thread dpmihai
I also tried to make a desktop Wicket application to look good on Android
phone.

1. Depending on application there is a big possibility to not be able to
show all the information. For me, it was ok to use css media query to have a
different css for Android phone. I had to tweak with fonts size and hide
some markups.

2. Modal Windows are a big pain for me. I had to make them show near the top
with fixed position like:

.wicket-modal { 
position: fixed !important; 
top:5% !important;  
}

Without this, on Webkit browser if you scroll down to click some link which
opens a modal, you even won't be able to see the modal (depends on how much
scrolling you need).

I cannot drag a modal on screen (neither in Webkit browser nor in Chrome).
Only the background is dragged.

So I guess, if you can avoid modals, then do it. If you cannot avoid them,
then keep them as small as possible.

RE: Wicket site on Android phone

2010-10-12 Thread Randy S.
A big advantage of the iphone browser is its ability to scroll an inner
scrolling box (scrollable div or iframe, for example). It does this by
handling a two-finger drag as scroll. I'm not aware of a way to do the same
with the android browser.

We also are facing demand for a desktop web app to be used on android so
we are considering in some cases simplifying the UI to accommodate this. One
example is bouncing to a different page rather than using a modal dialog for
some interactions.

Back on topic for Wicket, scrolling is the only barrier we have seen.
Everything else works. For what it's worth, a lot of our ajax stuff is
wiquery-based.

 The fact that it supports Flash and that its apps are written in Java
 instead of Objective C like the iPhone (last I heard of that language
 was in 1989!) made it extremely attractive to me but even without
 writing specific Android apps the fact that it has a proper browser
 means that wicket powered sites around the world will start to get
 visited, a lot, by yet another browser type. They've also found that
 Andtroid users, on average, pull down 25% more data per month on their
 iPhone cousins - apparently they're a lot more tech savvy crowd - less
 'Angry Birds' and more ServerSide etc.,

 Coming from Java world my knowledge of JavaScript is very limited so I
 don't know how helpful I'll be in debugging the Javascript as executed
 on a Webkit/Android browser.

 If anyone else out there has a wicket website and an Android phone I'd
 like to know if you experience some of the problem I did. It only
 appears to affect JavaScript - standard HTML form submission seems fine
 - as expected.

I guess it is some WebKit related Javascript issues.
Don't know how hard is to debug them but if you manage - send us a
 patch ;-
