Is there any easy way to set focus on fields within mobile apps. The layouts don't seem to work.

Hi Onno,

The cursor_to_col_id layout parameter should work with regular forms in the Mobile GUI.
It unfortunately doesn't work for task popups though, this is a known issue. 


If you only need to set focus on the next empty text field, we have a workaround for task popups.
The workaround is a CustomConfig option (which is customer specific and baked into the app) which when turned on, will focus the next empty text field.

 

Kind regards,
Leroy Witteveen

Thanks Leroy,

 

To be absolutely clear, this only works with customer apps, not with the Indicium app?

Hi Onno,

That's correct, that specific CustomConfig option isn't turned on for the Indicium app.
