SLK 1.7–Assignment List Web Part now works on iPads

I’ve just completed some work ensuring that the Assignment List Web Part works on iPads. Before the work it would only show the results pane as below.

ipadALWPPre

And now it displays both panes:

ipadALWPPost

There’s 2 minor differences to using it in a PC browser.

  1. You need to tap twice to change the query. This is because the first tap is taken as a hover, before the next tap is taken as a click. After the first time, all the other query links work fine. This is slightly annoying, but still usable and I haven’t found a simple way to resolve it.
  2. When there are many assignments returned by a query, e.g. Active above, then the web part expands to show them all rather than adding toolbars as on a PC browser. So on an iPad it is
  3. ipadALWPPostLong

Whereas on a PC it would be

pcALWP

This is due to how iframes are implemented in iOS. There are some complex ways around it, but at the moment I’ll leave it as is to avoid complexity and it at least works for iPads now.

This will be available in SLK 1.7.

  1. Hi Richard.

    My name is heidi and I’m from Colombia and I’m new in sharepoint 2013. I need to create a new SCORM course but I don’t know how to create. I installed sharepoint learning kit 1.7 SLK beta and then I made a few SCORMĀ“s on flash with javascript, but the application din’t show me the scores and the status din’t show me like a finish on the app, but if I whatch the data base, the results are there. Would you help me?. please. What I’ve to do?

  2. Try posting in the discussion forum with a link to the package. Without the package it’s going to be impossible to debug.
