HTML buttons not senstive to touch in Playbook

Hi,

 

I'm having a Playbook WebWorks app with buttons styled with CSS using images. I'm having issue with touch sensitveness with these buttons. The navigation doesnt work always when a button is tapped.  Anybody around here having similar issues? Please let me know. Also let me know if there is a solution to that.

 

Thanks in advance

Praveen

Hi Praveen,

 

Can you put up a sample online for us to look at? I'll have a look if you do!

I'm having the same problems, but I think it's a generic problem with the PlayBook, as the issue also plagues the browser.

Re: HTML buttons not senstive to touch in Playbook

Hi,

 

This is applicable to any button type added to a simple HTML page.

 

For example,

 

<input type="button" value="Click" />

 

When such a button is clicked, it sometimes turns dark blue color without performing the actual operation it should do. Like interfaSys mentioned i feel its generic problem with playbook.

 

Thanks

Praveen

Finally found a workaround for the issue.

 

Its better to use ontouchstart or onmousedown instead of onclick for the button action. :Punk:
