Using Onsen UI ons.platform isAndroidTablet()

August 13, 2017, at 2:33 PM

I'm working on simple hybrid app and I'm using Onsen UI using purely JavaScript, and everything is working good so far. The only issue I have is determining if the mobile device is a Tablet or Phone. I found ons.platform reference, and the isAndroidTablet() method, but I can't figure out how to use it. I used the <ons-if orientation="landscape"> and <ons-if platform="android"> to modify a few DOM elements when in landscape orientation and/or android, and it works great, but if I could use this isAndroidTablet() option, it would be great. I've been looking everywhere, but I can't find any documentation in addition to what's already on the Onsen UI pages. This is what I have so far:

 <ons-if orientation="landscape">
  <div id="overlay">
    <ons-scroller style="height:300px">
      <ons-list id="theList">
    <ons-if platform="android">I'm Android

I would like to replace the <ons-if orientation="landscape"> with something like what isAndroidTablet() I guess should do. Anyone out there has had any experience with this? Thanks!

I have no experience with Onsen UI but from what I seen it's based on angular2(or react or vue). If you use angular, theoretically, you could use an *ngIf in your template.. Like a

<div *ngIf="isAndroidTablet()">...</div> 

Here you can find some template example with what I said earlier
