Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9685) A fix for the magnifying glass popping up on iOS9 when longpressing the webview
Date Thu, 22 Oct 2015 10:18:27 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CB-9685:

Github user EddyVerbruggen commented on the pull request:
    I think I'll be adding a configuration for this to config.xml as not all folks may like
this feature (new PR).
    The plugin that inspired this PR has been around for a few weeks now:
and while most like it, it may break text selection. If your app needs that this feature will
cause trouble.
    I propose enabling this private plugin only when a certain config.xml property has been
    And I'd also like to add a feature to suppress the magnifying glass for devices with 3D
Touch support. In the plugin mentioned above I've already done so, by specifying a preference:
`<preference name="Suppress3DTouch" value="true" />`.
    Any thoughts others want to share perhaps?

> When pressing the webview for 500ms on iOS9 a magnification glass pops up. On UIWebView
the popup is always at the top of the page (see the screenshot in the readme here:,
on WKWebView the popup is where your finger is.
> On UIWebView we have yet to find a non-native way (read: CSS) to fix the problem, but
on WKWebView a few lines of CSS seem to fix the issue.
> This improvement is aimed at resolving the problem for UIWebView. There is no reason
not to include a fix for WKWebView as well, other than I didn't invest time in it because
of the CSS workaround.
