My Page :

<apex:page standardcontroller="Expense__c" extensions="ExpenseController"  sidebar="false" showHeader="true" showChat="false" recordSetVar="exp" >
<script src="../../soap/ajax/30.0/connection.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<apex:form >

<apex:inlineEditSupport />

<apex:pageBlock title="List of Expenses">
<apex:pageBlockTable value="{!exp}" var="item" >
<apex:column value="{!item.Date__c}"/>

<apex:column value="{!item.Type__c}"/>
<apex:column value="{!item.Amount__c}"/>
<apex:column value="{!item.Comments__c}"/>
<apex:commandButton action="{!save}" value="Save" id="theButton1" onclick="alert('Saving the changes...')"/>
<apex:commandButton value="Total" id="theButton2" onclick="alert('Deleting the expense...')"/>


This page's inline edit support is working fine in desktop but when the same page is accessed via tablets or mobile phones the inline editing is not working.

Can someone tell me why ?

This is because mobile devices can't fire the double click javascript event, instead they would usually interpret this as a double tap and zoom.

There's an idea to allow inline editing from a tap followed by another tap on the pencil icon that appears at :


but there's no comment from product management, which typically means it isn't being actively worked on.
