App doesn't display properly.

I have written a webworks app, and it displays fine in the Blackberry web browser, but not when actually loaded as an app.
Thank You for any help.

Re: App doesn't display properly.

What works in the browser may not be the same for webworks compiled app (thinking thats obvious from your post).  What I mean is: a web page / app does not have the config / manifest that an webworks app has and needs.  While you can take a web / html5 app and convert it into a webworks app, it won't work straight away with the adjustments.

 

Are you able to supply code for this app?

Re: App doesn't display properly.

Ok, I think that I now understand this a bit better. This is a link to the code: wootton-house.com/app/latin/index.html

My problem is that although I know about the compiling and everything, I don't know how to find out what is going wrong.

Re: App doesn't display properly.

I havent seen your page, but can you check you 'meta' tag, specially the initial-scale value and other defaults.

You can find an easy sample to copy paste from the bbUI wiki

Re: App doesn't display properly.

Ok, I think that I will have a look at that. Might the problem be that I defined sizes in the CSS with percentages?
