When using the KONtx.element.Grid I have so far only used the horizontal orientation. Today I tried swapped it to vertical, and although the down key works better with this when it goes to 'page 2' it doesn't display the elements of the grid as it does with the horizontal orientation.
Is there another setting of the Grid I need to adjust to make this work or is it a problem with the Grid element and if so will it be fixed in upcoming releases?
we are now using the latest release 0.9.5-33, with kontx/1.1 however are still having issues with the vertical orientation of the listGrid function.
When paging to the next page, content flashes up for a second and then dissapears.
Horizontal orientation still works find.
I just talked with the developer who wrote the grid code and he says that vertical grids are not supported in Framework 1.1. Are you sure you are using 1.1? Can you please provide me a code sample? Thanks!
The "orientation" flag is currently forced to horizontal in 1.1 framework when creating a Grid instance. Our entire UI paging model is built around scrolling these grid pages horizontally for content. (Vertical grids would lock a user into the grid when trying to move up or down through the view - the Grid would not release focus until it was at the ends of the dataset.) There may be uses for a "vertical" grid that does not receive focus and shifts up and down when triggered by another control (such as a page indicator). This vertical shift would only be apparent with animation enabled, and a non-focusable "grid" receives no additional benefit from "grid" code. If a vertical animation is desired on a future platform with animation enabled, a different control (such as an element.Button) should be used in conjunction with the Engine's animation functions.
Thanks guys. We'll stick to the horizontal orientation for now then.
So does that mean that animation is not currently supported ? A while ago I did try to get an animated image working but had no joy.
Animation in images is not supported. Animation on grids and others controls is currently disabled on Samsung do to performance reasons. It's yet to be determined which other platforms will have this enabled by default.
