window behavior stretching cell phone

Post by cgetty »

I started using UI builder and enjoyed it very much and I still use it from time to time.

old version of UI bulder
http://vb3builder.atwebpages.com/vb3/
I converted a older program to CrossUI.

old version

Notice how it's easier to stretch and navigate the screen.

new version using CrossUI
http://vb4.xp3.biz/cathy/

Was the ability to stretch and navigate the screen lost with the upgrade to CrossUI?

These examples should be viewed using a cell phone.

Or is there just a setting that I should set that I overlooked?

Thanks Clark.

I noticed that you have 5 tabs, but hide all tabs except the first one, and you set "value" to 5th(hidden).

Code: Select all

               .setItems([
                    {
                        "id" : "a",
                        "caption" : "Wanker Bell",
                        "imageClass" : "xui-icon-xui",
                        "closeBtn" : false
                    },
                    {
                        "id" : "b",
                        "caption" : "Hosted Sites",
                        "closeBtn" : false,
                        // HIDDEN
                        "hidden" : true
                    },
                    {
                        "id" : "c",
                        "caption" : "Play",
                        "closeBtn" : false,
                        // HIDDEN
                        "hidden" : true
                    },
                    {
                        "id" : "d",
                        "caption" : "Apps",
                        "closeBtn" : false,
                        "optBtn" : true,
                        "popBtn" : true,
                        // HIDDEN
                        "hidden" : true
                    },
                    {
                        "id" : "e",
                        "caption" : "Opening Tab",
                        "closeBtn" : false,
                        // HIDDEN
                        "hidden" : true
                    }
                ])
                .setLeft("0em")
                .setTop("0em")
                .setVisibility("visible")
                // select the 5th
                .setValue("e")

Yes the observation that you made regarding my interface it was just having fun trying to get familiar with the IDE trying to learn how things work there is no necessary rhyme or reason to any of it.

But can you answer my question regarding the old version that you did in 2009 I was able to easily stretch windows and shrink windows on a cell phone and I found that very convenient

How can I stretch and shrink a window by pinching the screen on a cell phone. I just found that very convenient that's all.
