annoying keyboard pops up

Post by adventuresofgreg » Wed May 26, 2021 12:10 am

html5 on mobile: touch the screen anywhere and the darned keyboard pops up. Focus on nothing does not work. Touching anything pops the keyboard up. Searched the forum and this is a complaint that goes back years. I can't believe it hasn't been fixed. Such a silly thing, and it makes my mobile app totally useless.

Is there any .js workaround?

Hi,
I dont develop for html5 but i'm working for an iOS customkeyboard
I use it with a locked fld with a custom cursor
You may download first prototype here.
download/file.php?id=7482
If it make sense for you I can post last version with a whole keyboard (i need to isolate it from a big stack).
Best regards

The LiveCode 10.0.0 DP-1 that was just released STILL has this bug in IOS Safari. Hopefully this will be addressed because it's a deal breaker to have to dismiss the keyboard after every touch on every object

@Wally: Don't worry that issue is high on the list to fix in 10.0 - indeed hopefully we'll manage to resolve it for DP-2.

We also hope that (in general) the Web engine (both with the move to WASM, and other architectural changes we are planning) will perform a lot better on mobile browsers (Mobile Safari, in particular) as we continue to improve it through the 10 development cycle.

And will the .wasm file be any smaller in the future?
It is 19 MB now (ok, that is smaller than before when the .js file was 28 MB).

@williamdesmet: Yes - the WASM file will be smaller in the future - we estimate we can get it down to around 7-8Mb uncompressed (hopefully 3-4Mb compressed). Hopefully the first reduction will happen in dp-3 - so there will be more to say about this as we get further through the 10 development cycle.
