Trouble in positioning textareas & custom select box on mobile

In Progress Anton 4 years ago

I created a screen which contain several textareas and custom select boxes. I'm trying to see how it will on my tablet. At the beginning I tried to change the scaling to fit screen, it helped, now I see the screen is not zoomed in and everything in the right place except for the textareas and select boxes which move to right for some reason. I use for testing Samsung Tab 8 (which has screen resolution of 1280x800) I'm not sure if it's an issue but this device has physical buttons.

When I also try to move the text areas to the left (to fix the right margin (it's not the right solution)), the textareas becomes smaller for some reason.

Thanks for letting us know about this! If possible, can you attach a screenshot of how the design looks in Justinmind vs. how it looks on your tablet?


I tried to build a simpler prototype I was not able to reproduce the problem in select box (I will check it again), in the mean time I managed to reproduce the problem with the textarea. I changed the simulate settings to fit to screen size (for mobile). I attached screenshots of the problem.


After I double checked the first prototype I used select (under forms and controls) where is also the textarea controller could be found. The first select box controller is custom select list (under forms and inputs).

Do I need to configure something in the prototyper/mobile app to use the android components?

Thank you!
