this is an old issue.
We have a 4.2 Smartphone app under development with up tp 50 input fields, which are now set to type="tel", because that's what APEX 4.2 provides. However, because you get a more suitable keyboard on mobile devices for our purposes, we decided to set them to type="number".
But before I go on inserting all those items anew with the plugin by Raganitsch and deleting the old ones and changing the column identifiers etc., I wondered if there is an easier way now with the 4.2 smart phone GUI to adjust the existing fields ?
thanks for the suggestion.
I have tested on an android with different format masks, always get the regular alphabetic keyboard. I will test on an iPad also, but can't get to that before monday. I'll get back here then.
