Hi guys,

I find that when I use an iPad I want to see less rows in a Browse, like only 5 where as on a desktop with a mouse I'd rather see 15 rows.

So I do the following:

 if instring('IPAD',UPPER(p_web._UserAgent),1,1)

The question I have is simple, what other things must I check, ie I don't know what other devices act the same.  Can anybody please post here a list of tablet things?

there is a screen size setting variable which may be better to check. you can see it on your web server log after you connect.

there's not much point in doing that, because the list would be obsolete within a shortspace of time. And your program would be out of date within a few months, never mind a few years.

What you really want to test for is the screen size. there are two session values,


Which return the current dimensions of the browser. Perhaps you want to make decisions based on that.

Then it gets complicated though, because you have iPads with very different _resolutions_ (although the same size) - ie Retina display.
