    Question about dialog

    I use the 'FLOAT' type on 2nd edition. It work perfectly after i convert it to string, and use the TUPLE function.

    After I port my PY to 3rd edition, i cannot enter NUMBER longer that 10 digits.
    Same code is running.

    My question is:
    What is the proper implementation of DIALOG where user can input 11 digits mobile number?

    Calling all PY veterans there. please help.

    follow up....


    Also, my 2nd edition behave like my 3rd edition once I try to input number on a dialog box.

    code:

    cp= appuifw.query(u"Type your friend mobile number", "float")


    using:
    PythonForS60_1_3_22_2ndEd.SIS, I can input more than 10 numbers

    using:
    PythonForS60_1_4_1_2ndEd.SIS, up to 10 number only.


    What happen to this? What should I need to use to inpute 11 number for mobile number?

    I didn't check the pys60 sources so I don't know for sure, but if there's a limit for the 'number', well, there's not much you can do without modyfing them.
    Still I don't think it's a good idea to use 'number' or 'float' queries for a phone number. What about numbers starting with '+' or '00'? You'll loose information in the numeric variable.
    Then again you can click a function key on the phone and limit the input only to numbers even in the 'text' field. But I admit it's a workaround.
    I'm going to write pys60 phone number input control, but it'll take some time.
    whatever happens happens

    Re: Question about dialog

    it works ok when using FLOAT type to get INPUT mobilenumber from user. This was since september under 1.32 pys60 version.

    But after i switched to 1.41, FLOAT limits up to 10digits only. I need to make it long.

    I cant use TEXT type since the user need to press the switch keys to make input numeric. What I want is to be able my user to automatically type in the number withou hassle.

    I hope somebody can help.

    Some wizard will need to implement you a phonenumber editor. Until somebody volunteers, your users will have to switch from textmode to numbermode. Use "text".

    Floating point numbers have limited precision. Letting the user input more digits than the implementation can reproduce makes no sense. I guess.

    thanks NSLP!


    Just wondering why in ver 1.41 eliminated float lenght. Unlike in 1.32 which offer longer lenght.

    thanks guys!
