Re: Disable the zoom in Blackberry browser:

Hi,

We are finding it weirded user experience with automatic zoom-in, that happens; when the user enters a value into the textbox.

Providing the following meta tag does not help
<meta name="HandheldFriendly" content="true" />

This happens in 9530 Storm simualtor.

Can you please let know how this can be avoided?

This is a critical user-experience issue.
Appreciate your response.

Thanks,
Navaneeth

Re: Disable the zoom in Blackberry browser:

Problem: Must zoom on image buttons before I can fire onClick event.

 

Steps: I'm using latest Blackberry Curve, Blackberry browser. I have some button images with an onClick event which should take me to another web page. When I first come to a page and then mouseover the Image button I get the "zoom" cursor. I must zoom first and then I get the hand cursor and only then can I click the link.

 

Expected: I really don't even want the "zoom" cursor at all or at least cusor should not be there for image button links.

 

Tried: I put in:  

<meta name="viewport" id="viewport" content="WIDTH=DEVICE-WIDTH"/>

Then I tried:

<meta name=”HandheldFriendly” content=”True” />

Then I tried using CSS to put a cursor: pointer on the images

 

Nothing worked.

Re: Disable the zoom in Blackberry browser:

The only way to disable these browser functions is to build your site in SVG.  And it's a pain.  So I suggest that instead you make your buttons bigger and more generic and not worry about the look so much.
