Hi,

Has any testing been done with Windows Phone 7 and Sencha Library? Any clue as to whether it will work or not?

Thanks,
Steve

I imagine not currently, if it's using a mobile "IE" type of browser.

The phone just came out. I doubt they are in active testing.

The WP7 browser is a hybrid IE7/iE8 with no support for HTML5 / CSS3 so it's not going to deliver a native like experience through the web. We'll have to wait for IE9 to move to WP7 for that.

Thanks... Noticed that after I posted... a bit disappointing that MS is behind the curve already.

Well, they may be a bit behind, but I think they've a good momentum. A quick search for "wp7 ie9" revealed Microsofts plans to release an IE9 cousin for the wp7 giving us the HTML5 support we need for our Sencha Touch apps.

More multithreading support and copy-paste won't hurt them either. If they don't screw this up, the last thing I really want is alternative keyboard- and dictionary- support for when writing non-english messages.

In short I'm very happy with my wp7 as well as MS's effort with it. They're never the first, but lately they've usually been good once they get going.

Two years ago I would never have thought that Microsoft would be a smartphone player, much less that I would actually WANT a phone based on Windows. Now, windows phone is my primary mobile device (has been since the first phone was released) and I never get tired of it. I have recently installed the Mango beta complete with the new IE9 browser and things are heating up! I work in the mobile industry and I spend all day every day using iphones, blackberries, androids, phones and tablets and Windows Phone is competitive.

I have been watching Sencha Touch since the beginning and it is the most robust, cross-platform application framework for html/css/javascript developers. Keep ahead of the curve and support as many mobile platforms as possible. Cross platform will be king in the next few years whne it comes to robust mobile web application frameworks

so I wrote 3 of the top 100 apps in the phone 7 market place. We are doing more on mobile and I'm trying to review Sencha so we can deliver the same app to multipul platforms. I went to a session yesterday briefly on Sencha in Seattle and they mentioned something about it but I can't find any documentation on how to get started doing sencha in visual studio for phone 7? is there anything any where on how to do this yet?

Hi,

Would you (jobrodesign) be kind enough to share with us some more information about your discoveries, using Mango (7.5) and Sencha Touch together ?

I'm very interested in how the Kitchen Sink demos are running on Mango (Windows 7.5)

It would be great if anybody with a WP7 device, like Nokia Lumino 800 or HTC Radar, had time to test the Official Sencha Touch demos and shared with us the experices.

Kitchen Sink demo:
http://dev.sencha.com/deploy/touch/examples/kitchensink/

Does it execute perfectly, maybe with minor errors, or maybe not at all ?

Grateful for any feedback!

Thanks.

I have a Nokia Lumia 800 here and just get a white page :( I will try at some point and get you some console output when I have a little more time :)

Thanks, thats first class information. Too bad though for potentially millions of end users :-/
I hope Microsoft and Sencha will cooperate on this matter.

Can't seem to load firebug into the page, so no luck why it's not working. Some of the other demo apps also have the same issue, no GUI loads just the body (and any css applied to it).

Nokia Lumia 800, WP 7.5.

I have a Samsung Focus on Mango 7.5, and I have the same issue (blank screen). I was hoping to find a framework that would let me deploy web apps easily across all HTML5 enabled mobile devices (specifically iOS, Android, and WP7), but was disappointed to see that WP7 was not supported.

I am happy to help test anything that is needed to get Sencha Touch working on WP7. Just get in touch if you need a beta tester.

I did some test WP7 Mango on HTM Mozart, no demo/test or else is working.

If someone need help for test contact me.

Hi,

I'm wondering if any of you good folks with WP7 devices have tried running any of the Sencha Touch apps bundled and deployed with PhoneGap?

According to PhoneGap 1.3.0, WP7 is now fully supported.

Would any of you kind folks check to see if you can, in fact, run any ST apps using PhoneGap on WP7 devices?

Thanks much!

It's not as much that it "is not" supported, rather than "cannot be" supported - until MS releases an HTML5 compatible browser, true HTML5 web apps are not possible on a Windows Phone. At least, this is how I understand it.

That's the only correct answer. If I'm not mistaking Sencha Touch uses many parts of the WebKit framework located in Chrome & Safari. Windows Phone uses Internet Explorer which doesn't have any of the WebKit elements. Either IE should implement them ( which won't be the case) or Sencha will have to find a work around to make it work without the whole WebKit .

JQuery Mobile however does not use the WebKit stuff and is usable for Windows Phone.

I hope that Sencha will look into this matter because WP is really rizing up !
