Initial-scale doesn't work

Hello, I'm building a web-app and I'm following BlackBerry_Widget_SDK-Fundamentals_Guide, that recommends:


<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,height=device-height, initial-scale=1.0" />


But, I'm modifying the initial-scale and the device always show the same. I tested with:


<meta name="viewport" content="width=480px,height=auto, initial-scale=0.5" />

<meta name="viewport" content="width=480px,height=auto, initial-scale=2.0" />

<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.5" />

<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=3.0" />

<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=2.0" />


And there is no way

Re: Initial-scale doesn't work

Hi aserra, thanks for your post.


Although this is documented in the Widget SDK Fundamentals, I do not believe initial-scale is supported as expected by the BlackBerry browser rendering engine.  Which BlackBerry Smartphone model and handheld software version are you using?


Would you kindly submit this as a feature enhancement in the developer issue tracker: https://www.blackberry.com/jira/secure/Dashboard.jspa.  That way other members of the developer community can vote and provide their own input on this request.  This also helps our product management teams prioritize the addition of new features.


Best regards,

Re: Initial-scale doesn't work
