Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-4862) ios 7 keyboard resizes the page even with KeyboardShrinksView set to false
Date Thu, 17 Oct 2013 08:48:41 GMT


Adrian Vasiliu commented on CB-4862:

As far as I can see, this still holds for Cordova 3.1: even if KeyboardShrinksView is set
to false and height=device-height is not set in the meta tag, the view is resized when the
keyboard comes up.

On the other side, the Cordova 3.1 documentation states that height:device-height should NOT
be used on iOS 7 (for good reasons, because it brings other troubles): 
"iOS 7 issues: Remove the values "width=device-width, height=device-height" from your meta
tag "viewport" attribute' (
See also .

Hence, I wonder if this issue shouldn't be reopen (for Cordova 3.1).

> We have a page with a fixed footer and some inputs.  In previous ios versions the page
would be pushed up when an input was focused and the keyboard came up.  In ios 7, the page
height is reduced to the available space after the keyboard appears and the footer covers
the input (depends on the position of the footer, but it does happen sometimes).  There is
also a problem where the input could be beneath the keyboard if you have multiple inputs and
you use next/previous to move between them.
