How do you trigger an input widget remotely?

Hi,


Is it possible to trigger an input widget (such that it displays its picker/list contents for the user to choose) without clicking on it? I've managed to get it working in the desktop prototype quick simulation (using a 'Set Focus On' event on a Date input), but when I take the prototype to the iPhone it doesn't work (nor does it work for a Custom Select List)...


Thanks

also, these 'custom select input' widgets are *very* buggy. The majority of the time, the selected entry on the picker won't register in the field

Can you please send your prototype to jim.support@justinmind.com?

I think the issue with the picker reliability is related to the version of iOS. I have iOS 5.2.1 and it's unreliable. However on iOS 6 it seems to function fine

It seems so. We run tests on iOS 6 only.
