A great little enhancement of the tab functionality could be the following:
The user clicks on a tab (which is already selected) and the page is rolled down to the bottom (or the top of the page isn’t shown) then a click on the tab again will make the page scroll to the top.
I’m using tabbing multiple times when I have drilled down on a specific tab. It is actually a good way to get to the first page of a tab. But it is not possible to go the the top of the first page of the tab
Right! Or at least on iOS devices, usually you can tap above the status bar to scroll to top, but this doesn’t work in Glide.
@Robert_Petitto well that actually works for me on iOS 13.3.1
But I would like to be able to keep clicking on a tab and in the end will end up with the front page of that tab and scrolled to the top
I hate to bring up a topic that seems to have been settled by lack of activity, but here goes:
Since September 2020 when I first used Glide, I have been surprised when I started testing several of my apps to find that when I click on a tab, that I was returned to a spot viewing the tab somewhere else than at the top of the screen. As a user, I could correct the situation where I expected to be at the top by scrolling with my finger to the top, or clicking on the tab icon a second time.
There are situations where if I return to a tab, I would expect to be positioned where I left off in the middle of a screen – this would occur if I returned to a tab by using the “< back” control.
This distinction does not seem to happen and I suggest going to a tab be changed to exhibit this suggested behavior:
- Click on tab icon, go to top of the screen.
- Click on “< back” go to previous position within the screen.
