Focus Navigation on OS7

Hi, I just want to know why focus-based navigation is sluggish in OS7. I read this topic http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-and-WebWorks-Development/Focus-navigation-mode-too-slow/m... but it was from september 2011. I've checked the milestone page about SDK 2.3 but I can't find if focus-based navigation was solved. Any news about it?

Re: Focus Navigation on OS7

Hi devoldmx,

 

There are several technical reasons why nav-mode is slow on OS7 largely related to the change in browsers to webkit that happened on 6.0.

 

However as you implied this is to be fixed in the 2.3 release. https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks/issues/milestones?state=open

 

If you're anxious to see the new nav mode in action you can patch your install as described here - https://github.com/blackberry-webworks/WebWorks/tree/next

Re: Focus Navigation on OS7

Thanks, I patched my SDK and it works. It is not as fluent as in OS5 or OS6, but it improves the speed.
