    Question Radio Buttons Not Usable on Pearl?

    Advertisement



    Just got my Pearl a couple weeks ago and things are great except for one problem. I have a couple apps that use radio buttons for preferences and I cannot seem to select a different option than the default. Using the trackball just skips over all of the selections. One example app is the MidpSSH client - under settings you can change the font. The default is "tiny" and I am unable to select any other option. I have tried hitting space, pushing in the ball and a bunch of other things and nothing works.

    Is it possible that these applications are not "compatible" with the Pearl? I would think that RIM would have made sure that basic UI features would be compatible so that apps for the trackwheel units would work with the trackball. Is this a bug with the Pearl OS? Do apps need to be adapted for the trackball?

    I am running 4.2.0.67.

    Thanks,

    Occultus

    Welcome to pinstack. Have you tried to reboot your BB to see if that helps?

    occultus, Welcome to PinStack.

    Have you tried to highlight them, then either pressing the ALT key or the Enter Key?

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    I tried that and no luck. You can see the problem by downloading/installing the ALX/COD files under the Blackberry Section for the MidpSSH client. (just google midpSSH ssh client) in the download section.

    Once installed go to settings->fonts and try to change the font.

    There are multiple apps that use radio buttons and I cannot get them to work. I would really like to know if this is a known compatibility issue with the trackball.
