    I need to be able to have customers use their smart phones (iPhone, blackberry and android), to fill out this form. Is it possible? I don't see a non-java based version any where that I can use and I know that iPhone doesn't support java.

    Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

    First off, I'd like to correct you that our forms use not Java but JavaScript for special functions such as validation, page breaks, form collapses and the like.

    JavaScript is the scripting language of the web and most browsers, including mobile browsers such as the iPhone's Safari, support JavaScript. Take a look at this Opera Mobile screenshot of your form:


    So far, we haven't had any problems displaying forms in the leading mobile platforms available. Can you specifically tell us what issues your users are experiencing with your forms?

    I'll await your response. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Hey Neil,

    I uploaded the form onto our page and see no results on my blackberry
    device. I have to test several devices. But can't even see it on mine yet
    so I supposed it wasn't working. The image you sent didn't come through.
    Could it be the way it's imbedded on the page that is not allowing me to
    see it?

    I see what your problem is now as I was able to replicate the issue on my own mobile phone. It looks like the problem lies with the height of the form. Since it is embedded on a block that doesn't have a specific height, the form is having problems with expanding the height of the block.

    Solution is to use iframe embed codes instead of script embed <>

    To get your iframe embed codes

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Embed Form
    3.  Click iFrame
    4.  Copy the codes provided in the next screen


    Let me know how this works for you. I'll gladly await your response. Thank you.
