Hi,

I understand that this framework targets Android, iOS and Blackberry but I was hoping that my application will somewhat still work on a Windows Phone. Running it this morning on a Windows Phone 7.5 was shocking.

Is this the norm, should I expect the application not to work at all on a Windows Phone browser or is there something I am doing wrong?

Is there a way for me to target a different layout for Windows Phone or is this framework just not able to work on this platform?

I guess if this is the case I would rather abandon the framework and just code a general interface that will work on all devices.

Thanks,
Anton

Hi Anton,

You may take a look at this blog post for a thorough explanation on Kendo UI Mobile Windows Phone support.

Thanks Petyo,

That does make sense and clears things up. I will need to read up though how you will target layout for another device. Do you perhaps know if there is a setting like platform=none or how will you otherwise target a non-supported device?

Thanks,
Anton

Hi Anton,

We haven't done anything in this direction; most of the Kendo UI Mobile widgets will not function due to lack of touch DOM events and CSS enabled animations.

Hi Petyo,

Last question. If I use the ListView with the endless-scroll ability and a non iPhone, Blackberry, Android device access it is there any way you can think of I will be able to still make this work? At the moment only the first 20 records are shown.

Thanks

Hi Anton,

As stated numerous times, Kendo UI Mobile is fully functional (and supported) on webkit-based browsers.

If you are willing to patch the codebase and make certain functionality work on unsupported platforms, you may consider purchasing a license - the commercial bundle includes the non-minified JavaScript source files.

Keep in mind that we do not provide support for modified versions of Kendo UI. 

All the best,
Petyo
