With a mobile phone you have different types of keyboards depending on the "type" of input. It would be very usefull If you could control this from the default input widget.
Then I would be nice that search fields get type search so that the enter key changes into search etc.
Options would then be:
This would be really helping!
An other idea was closed because not every data type is supported, but it is really handy for the data types mentioned (also on w3schools under "HTML5 Input Types").
This should be default in the modeler, especially if Mendix wants to make apps that are optamized for mobile users.
not being able to set "number" or "email" as input type without downloading a widget just feels limiting.
I have a widget that does the trick. It allows you to find your input domnodes and set the text value of it.
I submitted it to the appstore and it awaits approval. It is tested in hybrid apps and it works on Android, iOS and WP.
For now you can use the version from GitHub. (Download the mpk and drop it in the widgets directory).
