Introducing the Titanium Warehouse

Titanium Warehouse
Notice a new tab at the top of this site?
That’s the Titanium Warehouse.

The Titanium Warehouse contains links to all the useful blog posts that have been written on this site and will hopefully become a comprehensive resource for Titanium developers. Links to other useful sites around the web and Appcelerator’s own documentation might be added in the future as well.

The Titanium Warehouse is categorised into logical topic groupings to help you find what you need to know. If you’re having a problem with Titanium development, then hopefully the code warehouse will help you to find a quick and easy solution.

From now on, whenever a new tip is posted on the main Titanium Tips blog page,
the Titanium Warehouse will be updated accordingly.

iPad Dimensions - Landscape

Size of the standard iPad User Interface (UI) elements in Landscape orientation.

iPad Dimensions Landscape

The good thing about the iPad (so far) is that there is no Retina display to worry about - so no @2x images are required.

If you want an image to fill the Main Content Area, it needs to be 1024 pixels wide by 655 pixels high.

In case you can’t make sense of the graphic...
iPad Landscape Width 1024px
iPad Landscape Height 768px
   
Status Bar Height 20px
Nav Bar Height 44px
Main Content Area Height 655px
Tab Bar Height 49px

Note that when the keyboard is displayed, it covers up the Tab Bar at the bottom of the screen.
