How is html5 handled by DPS?

Jan 24, 2012 11:49 AM

The question is - does DPS use Safari and all compatible APIs to handle html5?

I'm mostly interested in DeviceOrientation API.

    DPS supports most of what's supported in Mobile Safari webkit. The best approach is to test your HTML in mobile safari. If it doesn't work there, it won't work in DPS. Then try it in DPS.

    Nik - Ive been through this recently and unfortunately, Bob's reply is mostly right - BUT;

     

    1.) Not everything that works in Mobile Safari, works in DPS. (i.e. Position:fixed divs) I hear this mantra over and over again. Not entirely valid.

    2.) Ive been told by Adobe GOLD support that there is no definitive documentation specific to HTML handling.

     

    Ive spent many hours working with HTML/JQuery/CSS3 articles (not as overlays, but actual articles) and support in DPS doesnt seem entirely there yet.

     

    But he is dead on when he says if it doesnt work in Mobile, it wont work in DPS.

     

    Hope that helps.

    Absolutely!

    Now that's a good mantra; "Experiment, test, repeat."

     

    And don't forget to share with us what you learn!

    To clarify, I said DPS supports most of what mobile safari supports. I'll see if I can come up with a list of unsupported features.
