    I'm currently in the process of updating our web application to be more iPad/iPhone friendly and I've run into a problem with the FormDecorator.  I have the FormDecorator set to decorate text boxes.  I have a text box for an email address, and to make the iPad/iPhone display a keyboard formatted for email, I need to change the "type" attribute of the text box to be "email" instead of "text".  When I do this, it is no longer decorated by the FormDecorator.  I know that the "email" type is part of HTML 5, so I was wondering if you were planning on supporting this in a future update or if there is a way that I can manually make this field get recognized by the FormDecorator.  Thanks for your help.

    Hi Ahmad,

    Indeed special HTML5 input elements are not supported by the current implementation of RadFormDecorator. I will log this as a suggestion and we will need to decide whether, how and to what extend these controls will be decorated and supported. For the time being though you will have to come up with a custom solution for these inputs as most of their decoration is done through CSS.

    Thanks for the reply.  I'll try to work around it for now, but it would be nice to see support for this in a future update.

    Hi,

    Just out of curiosity, do the controls (for example the RadTextBox) already have html5 input type support?

    Hi,

    There is a demo showing the HTML5 support: RadFormDecorator HTML5 Support.

    Currently supported HTML5 input types are: search, tel, email and url.

    Kind regards,
