Hello All -
I'm tasked with doing a mobile version of a client's site - so far, so good. Where I'm running into a problem is with a form-based date picker. What I've decided to do - rather than the calendar-styled picker the regular version of the site uses - is to use 3 select lists for month, day and year.
Of course, now the problem is the length of the month and day selects as - in the Adobe Device Central emulator I'm using - these lists run off the bottom of the emulator screen.
During my web study on this topic, it seems that some mobile browsers (apparently safari mobile and opera mini) "automatically" transforms select lists into browser-based widgets. One tutorial I read mentioned this capability, but my emulator isn't verifying this capability.
Honestly, I can't find much information on how to deal with this kind of requirement (select lists on a mobile device) and would really like to know what - and how - to properly display this kind of information on a mobile device.
Additionally, if anyone has a recommendation of perhaps a better emulator to use vs. Device Central I'd love to know about it.
All guidance/assistance gratefully accepted!
