Maximum field height?

There’s the rub I think. For RunRev (is the company still called that?) to make what mobile objects they can universal, and leave the others as is would then create a situation where developers would have to know what controls were universal, and which were Mobile/Desktop only. It just adds another layer of complexity.

I’m curious though if a library could be created so that a handler for a mobile message (let’s say a touch message) could “translate” into a desktop message? In this way, the app on the mobile would send a mouseUp message to the target.

Seems crazy I know. I’m just Pea Brain Storming.

But there are features on mobile that don't exist on desktop. LC has provided for things like Android toasts and iOS popups. These things are one reason the language can't be entirely universal; mobile requires a different feature set. But it would be great if a scrolling field would just be a scrolling field everywhere. On the other hand, mobile lets you scroll all sorts of things (images, carousels, etc.) so we'd still need our mobile scroller anyway.
