Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-4404) android:windowSoftInputMode does not work
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2014 19:33:03 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-4404:

So, now that I moved android:SoftInputMode, it seems that we can now detect resize events
with adjustResize.  However, the "Working as Intended" bug indicates that adjustResize doesn't
work at all, so there's no way to detect the keyboard based on what I can find.  If someone
has some magic code to do this, that'd be awesome.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 2.9.0
>         Environment: * Mac OS 10.7.5
> * Android 4.1.2 and 4.2.2 emulator using Intel's x86 images
>            Reporter: Daniel Trebbien

> _I recently posted a description of this issue to the phonegap group at []._
> I am testing out PhoneGap 2.9.0 in the Android emulator (using Intel's x86 images), and
I am seeing the issue that the android:windowSoftInputMode setting is not having an effect.
 By default, the setting is set to "adjustPan" in the generated project, but when I actually
focus a text <input>, the soft keyboard appears on top of the app, but does not pan
the main window, and the <input> is usually hidden beneath the keyboard as a result.
> Steps to reproduce:
> # Create a new PhoneGap 2.9.0 project using the {{cordova create}} utility.  Add the
'android' platform.
> # Open the project in Eclipse.
> # Edit {{index.html}} to add {{<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><input
placeholder="Text box">}} below the {{<h1>Apache Cordova</h1>}} heading.
> # Run the app in Android 4.1.2 or 4.2.2 emulator.
> # Tap the <input> and notice that the soft keyboard is placed over the app and
the <input> is hidden beneath.
> # Try changing the android:windowSoftInputMode setting in {{AndroidManifest.xml}} to
"adjustResize", reload the app, and notice that the app is not resized when the <input>
receives keyboard focus.
> I am seeing this problem in Android 4.1.2 and 4.2.2 emulator.  In Android 4.0.3 emulator,
the app pans as expected.
> The strange thing is that if I load the www/ files in the Browser and focus the <input>,
then the window is resized to fit the soft keyboard like normal.  This seems to imply that
android:windowSoftInputMode works fine in the emulator, but there is some issue in PhoneGap
that is preventing it from working.
