Re: screen pixel guideline for Blackberry 10

This was asked a few months ago by someone and the answer then was it doesn't exist.

AFAIK the situation hasn't changed, this information is not available.

Re: screen pixel guideline for Blackberry 10

The problem with measuring pixels is that the action bar changes height depending on several factors, such as orientation, and device. The biggest impediment is on keyboard devices, where scrolling a page can hide/show the action bar without warning.

Re: screen pixel guideline for Blackberry 10

I have mellowed a little on my stance from 9 months ago, but I still think it should be unnecessary to know the exact heights and widths over all devices if designing properly.

[ Edited ]

you are right in many cases it is best to design without this infromation but sometimes it is extremely useful, really depends on what one is doing.

 

Say you wanted to create custom controlls like new actionbars or something(i've noticed bb uses custom ones that we dont have access to but could create our own), for that you need the exact dimensons in each rotation state for each device or it's going to look funny.

 

just one of the many :smileywink: I'm sure there's other cases where this info could come handy.
