Re: Datepicker for widget

Has anyone had success using the HTML 5 date picker with scroll based navigation? Doesn't seem to work at all.

Re: Datepicker for widget

thanks.  that worked

 

I like the idea of the widgets since I develope mostly in .net.  It seems like it is limit html and javascript for the Blackberry App. Is that correct?

jwgiblin3,

 

I come from a .NET shop originally and from my experience the biggest change from that to the widget environment is the controls aspect. In the .NET world I was used to just grabbing a grid, date picker, combo box, etc... and expecting to have a thousand properties. In the widget world you really just have to let go of that and start looking at building your own tools (control wise). This may seem like a disadvantage to developers wanting to "plug and play", but relying on a heavy framework just hurts your own skills in the long run (my humble opinion). In my mind, you are exchanging the RAD development style for a more flexible solution with a mobile outlet.

 

Granted, there are some great components/tools available such as Tim Neil's UI work (a post in this forum). I've even posted up some small UI tools. I'm sure the guys at RIM will have some more toys for us coming. I'll have more coming soon myself as well as a blog covering some of my real world examples that I've done for corporations.

Re: Datepicker for widget

Thanks Jmace.  That is what I thought. I was looking to create a BB app.  I do have experience in java, but I have been doing a lot of .Net developement.  I saw the .Net plugin so I was very curious.

 

I do believe I can do everything I need in the widgets

 

Thanks again for the expplaination.
