Example text

5 Providing input field hints Another HTML5 form attribute that caused problems was the placeholder. This attribute enables developers to specify an input hint that will be automatically visible to users. This hint is typically displayed (often in greyed-out text) within the input field itself, but disappears once the user taps or selects the field to begin typing. According to W3C specification, this attribute cannot, however, be used alongside the number input type. We were therefore forced to choose between triggering a numeric keyboard for certain users, or providing a placeholder within those input fields.

Combining these two is prohibited by W3C specification, but testing seemed to indicate that most browsers either supported simultaneous use, or simply omitted (and gracefully degraded) the placeholder. We therefore chose to continue using these together but would recommend further testing before widespread implementation. See Fallback strategies and false positives for more details. Specifying placeholders We used the placeholder attribute to display hints within many user input fields but encountered problems due to its incompatibility with the number input type.

NET will examine an incoming request and provide you with information on the capabilities of the browser making the request. The capabilities are exposed on the HttpRequest object as the property Browser with a type of HttpBrowserCapabilities. NET uses an instance of HttpCapabilitiesDefaultProvider to populate this property. However, you can create your own provider by inheriting from HttpCapabilitiesProvider. In Mileage Stats, we did just that and created MobileCapabilitiesProvider. Our custom provider inherits from the default provider.
