How to handle smaller text fields when viewing on a mobile device?Friday, January 29, 2016 at 05:24am
I have a particular document/form that has a few different fields which are of a small size, namely: date, year and state. I've created the text fields via the Java SDK as well as using the Designer and have noticed that when signing using a mobile phone, I am unable to see the text that I am entering - even with the device in a landscape orientation. I've attached an MS Word document with a sample, as well as a screenshot from an iPhone 6 in landscape mode showing that the characters are partially obscured. Are there recommended sizes for smaller two to four character data entry fields? Are there any known workarounds that I might be able to use? I tried dropdown lists, but they also have display problems on mobile. Unfortunately I'm in a highly regulated industry, so changing the actual form (and thus spacing) is not trivial.
