We are developing a small web application using html and javascript. How can we handle to user pressing the "go" key while a text box is highlighted/ edited by the user.

I agree with Cyber100. The document released by Apple this week is worthwhile as it y tells about the beginning of the story of how to optimize web pages. http://www.cyberdesignz.com can be an alternate source to get information regarding this topic.

iPhone Web Developer Tool http://www.manifestinteractive.com/iphone/ This application allows you to use your iPhone for Web Developing. You can View Source, Find on Page, Outline Divs & Tables, etc. Similar to the Firefox Web Developer Extension. Simply drag bookmarks into the web browser that you have your iPhone or iPod Touch synced to and you're good to go. Works on any site. Let me know what you think. If you have stuff you want added just let me know. - Peter Schmalfeldt

Sorry, this is just killing me... the sample for determining landscape v. portrait is sorta silly, as it hardwires an assumption of screen dimensions (future iphones will likely have different screen widths and/or heights). // also fixing "profile" to "portrait" var orient = window.innerWidth

That's a very innovative way by Joe to check landscape vs portrait. we can take it further and make it a custom event that fires off to any subscribers. That would seem pretty ideal :)

Steve Jobs is insane if he thinks I'll waste more than 2 minutes of my time trying to make my code pretty for an iphone. I'm seeing another "3% of the market" in the iphones future. AFAIC, he'll be getting POHM. (plain ole html markup).

Rather than polling, it seems that if you bind to the 'onresize' event, it will fire when you rotate the iPhone. So for the above example, you can delete this line: setInterval(updateLayout, 400); and add this line instead: addEventListener('onresize', updateLayout); It works on my iPhone, anyway. ;-)

Yeah! More browser incompatibilities and "making apps specific for one kind of browser". Thanks Apple!

The browser on the iPhone might be Safari 3, but don't count on it being the same thing available for Windows. For example, the following test passes in Safari 3 beta on Windows, fails Safari 2, and fails on the iPhone. http://web.mit.edu/jwalden/www/test-array.html Basically, the bug is that |prop in jsArray| should return false only if prop is not present on jsArray, but Safari 2/iPhone is buggy and returns false for that if jsArray[prop] is explicitly set to the value undefined. I too suspect some forking and non-merging of recent-ish changes (this has only been fixed since March 28 in trunk webkit).

The document released by Apple this week only tells the beginning of the story of how to optimize web pages for the iPhone and develop webapps. The www.iPhoneWebDev.com developer community has been working hard to fill in the gaps of missing information. Since Friday we've figured out some best practices for viewport settings, discovered how to hide the URL bar to make more space available to web apps, how to detect orientation changes (portrait to landscape and back), tested AJAX and javascript performance, and have made progress on quite a few issues and work arounds for a number of bugs. If you are an iPhone web coder, check out our list archives, examples, and come join our community of developers helping developers! Also, many of us are participating in this week's barcamp-style www.iPhoneDevCamp.com this Friday in San Francisco. We hope to see many AJAXian faces there!

I think we should havethe iPhone to view the application.

Is there a program to simulate the view of the iPhone on a PC? Meaning, is there a way to view an application designed for an iPhone without owning an iPhone?

In my brief visit to the apple store this afternoon, I noticed that the iPhone seems to be running Safari 3, or some subset thereof. In particular, it has the Safari 3 browser's support of some CSS 3 functionality.
