Very surprisingly, I feel that the fastest mobiles with an xojo web application are Windows Phone (IE10)!!
Touch actions are highly reactive, and the display is faster than Android (chrome, firefox) and IOS (safari).
With my app, there is a real difference.
(and yet my Windows Phone is far less powerful than my Android and IOS devices)
IOS is not faster than Android to display speed, but IOS is much slower for touch reactivity.
Its interesting you say that as I have been doing some testing of my web app on mobile and I use the Mouse Up event over the Action event where possible and I really cant see any difference as they all seem very responsive. It would be interesting to do the same test with a msgbox instead of the page show to see if the problem is with the click or the resulting pages.
Using the mouse down event with mobiles is a bad idea because the event carries through onto subsequent pages therefore it is much safer to use the mouse up event. I have done a lot of testing on mobile devices (admittedly not with Xojo) and the mouse down never works correctly and is too responsive if you have events for items that are in the same location on multiple pages.
[quote=77064:@olivier vidal]But I do not like mix of native and added events in WE (it is also a lot of work). I hope it will not cause side effects.
yes, I did, this is important.
I think this case should have a lot more points, but people do not think it’s a bug! (this was my case)
WebEssential is really rich. it helped me in many areas. You should talk to all these benefits on your site, not only custom controls. This is a big advantage. For cons, the code is pretty tough for a beginner.
Thanks for the kind words. I never claimed it was easy though ;-). On that bug in particular, I had a customer who told me that if I couldn’t use development toolkits that work, he’d find another developer. I valued his business and asked him to find me that toolkit while I tried to figure out how to work around the WebKit mobile issue and still keep us running on desktop, Firefox, etc. A week later, he was happy with my judgement about these things again.
