Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34643) Android4 skin for 'Selection/drop down-type' Button
Date Tue, 25 Nov 2014 14:05:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34643?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14224562#comment-14224562

Ad Pijnenburg commented on FLEX-34643:

I think it's more like a DropDownList - the ComboBox includes a Textarea that triggers the
keyboard when you touch the rectangle area in stead of the down arrow at the right.

Indeed, both ComboBox as DropDownList are discouraged on mobile devices as the ASDOCs state.
There has been some discussion as to whether this can be solved by adding a mobile skin only;
other code changes might be necessary as well - e.g. see [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5977957/flashbuilder-4-5-dropdown-list-for-mobile-application]
and [https://github.com/Flextras/FlextrasComponents/tree/master/mobileComponents].
However, I have tested both components on a Nexus 5 (running Android 5.0) (see newly attached
images). Clearly with the desktop skins these controls are too small for touch interaction,
but opening and scrolling the list (which is mentioned as one of the issues with implementing
these components on mobile) is no problem on my device (tested with a dataprovider containing
21 items).

> One of the Android 4 button types (usually giving access to a selection drop down list
or date/time dialog) has the appearance of transparency with a bottom border line including
a small triangle at the bottom right (see attached image).
