IPhone Safari

The grid displays on the iphone safari web browser but will NOT interact, no cells are clickable and scrollbars do NOT appear. Is there any way to make it work on this platform?

Thanks,

Currently there are no plans to support ActiveWidgets on iphone or any other mobile platform. I believe that it is technically possible but it will be so painfully slow, that it does not make any practical sense. However I did not try iphone yet - it seems to have faster CPU and Safari is also relatively fast browser. So if you tell me that the performance is ok and there is enough demand for this - I guess it could be done in the future.

All widgets display with no performance problems, they just fail to interact.

My boss is a gadget freak, we have had/tested one of everything. In my opinion the iPhone is superior to any other device currently on the market. With the safari browser you can really use the internet on a mobile device, the javascript engine is not crippled like it is on most other platforms.

Since the source comes with your tool, can you tell me where to start looking for what might be causing activewidgets library to stop functioning. Maybe I can make some headway on getting it to work.

Thanks,

Sorry, I have no idea where to start - iphone safari uses different (older) version of WebKit, different events etc.

The first thing to check is whether AW detects that this is Safari browser - try

alert(AW.browser);

Then check grid parameters after initialization - everything that is calculated in /source/lib/grid/_overflow.js

Then how the mouse (?) events are generated/processed.
