Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1811) Previously hidden select dropdowns crashing the webview when focused upon
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 16:42:12 GMT


Adam  commented on CB-1811:

Ughh. Daunting for a mobile web developer, for sure. Android + Cordova has been painful for
us, but it's mostly been because of the WebView quirks and limitations. Android native development
is sounding mighty tempting for our next project :) 

We definitely took the wrong approach, though, in developing everything for the IPhone first
(lessons learned!)

Anyways, you guys have been awesome. Keep up the good work. We'll all hope Chrome can come
to the rescue someday :)

> I have a div panel that is hidden when a page is first shown. Inside the div are a few
html dropdowns (select tags). When I make the div visible (via javascript) and focus into
one of the dropdowns, I get the following logcat error:
> 11-04 03:58:49.136: A/libc(18437): Fatal signal 11 (SIGSEGV) at 0x00000000 (code=1)
> Then, the app just crashes and the webview disappears. I confirmed that this happens
when the parent div is initially invisible (display:none). If the div is visible at first,
all works fine, even if the div is hidden subsequently.
