Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-10288) statusbar plugin interaction with iOS multitasking

Nick Redding commented on CB-10288:

No, that has no effect on the problem.

I've discovered that what seemed to be a solution (commenting out the
NSNotificationCenter statement) is not a solution. This  is a
viewController issue that is probably a bug on Apple's end.

Typically, pulling in the cordova app in from the multitasking bar causes
the UIWebView to report bogus widths (and render according to those

What happens is when the app is brought into the initial (narrow) viewport,
the UIWebView reports its width as the width of the device (e.g. 1024 for
an iPad in landscape). Then as the viewport is expanded, the increase in
width is added to the initial width which was wrongly set as 1024--hence
bogus too-wide widths reported as the viewport is expanded horizontally.

Same thing in portrait mode--the initial width is the full screen width.

I don't believe this is a problem if the statusbar plugin is omitted, or if
it is included but "status bar overlays webview" is set. It's only a

the cordova app onto the screen from the right, the window resizing is not handled correctly
