    [CLOSED] EXT.NET on a Touch Screen

    Hello ,

    we have a request to run our web application on a touch screen and to trigger all the functionalities by finger instead of using the Mouse.

    Our application is built using Version 4.5.1 .

    our main questions are :
    1- what functionalities are not supported ? (Sliding panels - Drag and drop objects)
    2- what are the main differences between EXT.NET and EXT Mobile ? should we rebuild our application using Mobile Version to support some missing functionalities "if point 1 above is not applicable"

    3- any other points we should be aware of?

    Hello @Geovision!

    For your question #1, Ext.NET 4.5.1 should support pointer and touch events nicely. From the point you have interface components substantially customized, you would probably be needing to adapt them to the pointing devices.

    For your question #2, Ext.NET Mobile is currently a subset of Ext.NET components that are specificly written to aid drawing mobile-friendly interfaces, much like current smartphones' applications. Take a look on it thru mobile.ext.net (our Ext.NET Mobile Examples Explorer). Ext.NET Mobile uses a different (albeit similar) assembly from Ext.NET, so you'd need two separate websites and projects to run both. There may be ways to run both in a same project and website, but that's not tested nor guaranteed to work at all.

    For your question #3, search our open git issues and forum threads for issues with touch devices. There has been a history of issues with devices with multiple pointing devices (devices with both a mouse and touchscreen in specific browsers). Ext.NET 4.5.1 (non-mobile) support to mobile devices may be limited, mostly supported to the major makers, under iOS and Android architectures. Not all components in Ext.NET are present in Ext.NET Mobile; as mobile is focused to a small viewport, huge tables and charts with lots of information won't suit well.

    The official list of supported browsers/devices can be looked up here: http://docs.sencha.com/extjs/6.5.2/g..._browsers.html
    Notice for Ext.NET you want to look up the 6.5-classic column as Ext.NET uses ExtJS-classic 6.5.2-classic. For Ext.NET Mobile, 6.x-modern column, as Ext.NET Mobile uses ExtJS-modern version 6.0.2 currently.

    Well, t here's not much I can thing of now, but I hope this helps!

    It's been a while since we last replied your inquiry here and still no feedback from you. Do you still need more information regarding this inquiry?
