OS 5 Navigation mode and multiple inputs on the same line

[ Edited ]

I found a quirk today when trying to make sure an application was OS 5 & 6 compatible.


If RIM Navigation mode is on, and you have a date and a time input both on the same line, a couple of issues occur. 

1 - You can't activate the Date/Time selection control by clicking the trackpad on either input ( as talked about in this old devblog post.).

2 - If you just attempt to manually type in the field, you can only change the first portion of that input. If it is a Date input, you can only change the day. If it is a time input, you can only change the hours.



<div id='swabTime'>
  <div class='needsPad'>
    <label class='label'>Swab Start:</label>
    <input style='float:right;' class='inputTime' type="time" id="swabStartTime" value="00:00" step="5" onBlur="checkForTime('swabStartTime');"/>
  <input style='float:right;' class='inputDate' type="date" id="swabStartDate" value="" onBlur="checkForDate('swabStartDate');"/>
  <div class='needsPad'>
    <label class='label'>Swab Finish:</label>
    <input style='float:right;' class='inputTime' type="time" id="swabFinTime" value="00:00" onBlur="checkForTime('swabFinTime');"/>
    <input style='float:right;' class='inputDate' type="date" id="swabFinDate" value="" onBlur="checkForDate('swabFinDate');"/>
  <div class='needsPad'>
    <label class='label'>Comments:</label>
    <input id='swabComments' type="text" class='formInput' />

Re: OS 5 Navigation mode and multiple inputs on the same line

I'm having the same issue, and have had to use the cursor based navigation so far if i want the date picker scroll to appear, have you found a way around this or a solution?
