A method to detect if a user is on a mobile device
I would like to be able to offer scaled down forms using form behaviour in this scenario.

That would be brilliant

A very nice Idea... I was only looking at my app on the iPhone yesterday and it couldn't differentiate the 'Portrait' to 'Landscape' mode - this resulted in all of the Tabs being bunched together at the top and all of the sections were set to being in the 1st page column width.

If you could show only the tab that was being accessed, with a scroll down list for the other Tabs, that would be a nice feature. It would increase the the phones' usable real estate.

Implemented Browser() function that returns either "Desktop", "Tablet", "Mobile" or "TV".

The function detects the browser based on user-agent string sent with each request. The string contains only basic information such as platform and browser code and NO information on device's screen size or orientation - thus, the result is one of 4 categories.

Hi Kirill

Is it possible to optimise the login screen for mobile devices.

Nice idea Scott

Login and user registration part of TeamDesk used fixed 615px width. We have updated stylesheets to make pages accomodate to lesser resolutions.
This was a sort of quick fix and certainly needs to be improved - perhaps by switching anonymous pages to new layout style.

We've made couple of changes today to address mobile phones.

For devices with screens narrower than 480px we are displaying current tab and the chevron to display the dropdown list of other tabs. Also for new-layout-style forms we are enforcing forcing single column layout. And for screens narrower than 320px we also enforcing labels on top in forms.

Forms can be tested on the desktop with any modern browser - hide the sidebar and change the width of the window. To switch tabs to dropdown style you may need to refresh the page.

Work is still in progress, there is a lot of room for improvements.

This is looking really good now - alot nicer to navigate your way around.

Thanks for the improvement
