Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-593) Click and touch events do not fire after using scroll CSS
Date Wed, 30 May 2012 09:34:23 GMT


Steve Sims commented on CB-593:

The workaround was documented here:

My alternative attempt at a workaround was to comment out all the gapBridge code (as TimW
did in the workaround linked above) and replace it with the following:
var iframe = document.createElement("iframe");
iframe.setAttribute("src", "gap://ready");
iframe = null;

I found when using these workarounds that, as well as the Facebook and Google Analytics plugins
failing, console.log calls would also tend to break.  (On a separate point, I'd really love
to disable Cordova's console.log override, since it stops console.log output being sent to
the inbuilt remote webkit inspector.)

>From some additional debugging code I added in, it would appear as if Cordova stops sending
"gap://ready" messages through to the native environment.  I've not been able to establish
why that's the case.  Unfortunately I don't have the time right now to dig any deeper into
this issue, and not being familiar with Cordova's codebase I'm shooting in the dark when looking
for solutions.

I don't understand why my solution doesn't work, but perhaps a Cordova developer may have
an insight into this?
