Mobiles :: View Binary Image With Safari In IPad/IPhone?
Oct 8, 2010
Not sure if this issue should be posed here, but i try anyway:I have a webpage with a button, button click the webpage will write an image (in binary) to the response object, resulting the user can open or save an image.
Everything is fine in IE in Windows, but in Safari in IPad/IPhone, it is viewed in a seperate browser tab, with the binary image file written as a very long string.In Windows, i know you have to select a program to use to open a new file type for the first time, is this the case in IPad? that i need to select a program?
I have a webpage with an asp.net 2.0 upload file control, it works on Windows, but not in the IPad/IPhone, the textbox of the upload control has disappeared, and the button of the upload control is disabled.
I am developing an ASP.Net website which has a listbox which will be accessed by IPAD.The problem I am facing is that listbox has rather long text and IPAD does not show horizontal scrollbar when I use div tags. The two-finger horizontal scrolling doesn't work either on IPAD /Iphone.
I have an application that works perfect in IE and FF but when opened in iPhone Safari the checkbox checked and button onclick functions do not fire. I have looked all over the web for the last few days and could not find a solution to this very frustrating problem. I hope someone has encountered this before and knows of a fix.
I am in the middle of rebuilding a site an incorperating Ajax here and there.I was testing out the animations since I was interested in using them all over our new site.I was using the sample scripts found here:http://www.asp.net/ajax/videos/basic-aspnet-authentication-in-an-ajax-enabled-applicationplaced it on myserver and it works flawlessly across IE-Safari-Chrome-Mozilla. When I tried Ipad/Iphone the page tries to load, and then refreshes.I went to the samples page and found that everything there works EXCEPT the animations sample.http://www.asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/Samples/Animation/Animation.aspxIphone is Iphone 4 with latest updates, Ipad is original with latest updates.
I'm using an image field in the EditTemplate of FormView to allow my users to upload an image. It works fine in all major browsers, including Safari. But not on the iPad. There I get the error message "object reference not set to an instance of an object" when the EditTemplate is submitted.
I'm guessing it's because, on the iPad, the FileUpload button in my EditTemplate is "greyed out" (which is a problem in and of itself)...I suppose there's no built-in way for an iPad user (using the iPad version of Safari) to search for an image on the iPad hard drive to upload (without a special App, I'm guessing)....So, when the EditTemplate form is submitting on an iPad, I get the above error message---I think because the Fileupload field is Null (I have this theory, because the stack trace references my "ValidateImage" method in my code behind.)Anybody have any direction or answers I should try? Is there an obvious answer here, or should I post my EditTemplate mark-up and code behind?
I have a fairly standard ASP.Net web application which is used via mobile safari on the iPhone.Some users who have a link to the web application placed on their desktop via profile are reporting that when navigating between pages (which I do on the server with Response.Redirect after specific events or via standard anchor tags in other cases (no target specified)) that Safari opens a new window instead of reusing the existing window.
Because of this, any login token/cookie etc (i'm using the built-in ASP.Net membership stuff), is now gone for that new browser window and the login prompt is shown.The problem doesn't happen every time, and I can't seem to replicate it on my device (but i'm not deploying the shortcut via profile)As you can probably imagine, it's quite frustrating for the users to have to log in every time, and you can't fix an issue you can't replicate.My question is, has anyone heard of this issue and/or know a workaround?The app is NOT iPhone specific, that is, it is used in a full desktop browser as well, and the logins stay like you'd expect there - and the same window is reused repeatedly.I've considered a few possibilities, but have been drawing a blank as far as what might be causing this or how I can resolve it.
I finally got iphone's VPN working with our firewall so iphone users can see our Intranet pages. But I'm having trouble with pages which contain links to pdf files stored on network shares. The pages render links similar to this:
When viewed with IE7 on a Vista desktop these links work great, opening the pdf file in the browser window. But on the iPhone the link results in a 404 error.
Is there some trick to rendering a link to a PDF file stored on a network share that Safari can open, or is it just not possible?
Does anybody have experience using ModalPopup extender in iPhone/Safari? I added a ModalPopup and when I click on the button it does not run my server side code. I am sure that I did everything correctly and the same code works just fine in IE and Chrome. Here is a chunk of the code:
andProtected Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
So I created a site optimized to be rendered in a mobile device. I set the Width Site is looking good on Blackberry of my <DIV> tags to be about 300px, for the most part, to account for the reduced screen size. However, the IPhone Safari browser renders this to the screen extremely small, and I can only assume that it's automatically reducing the size of the html accordingly to fit the device. Again, Blackberry does not do this.
