Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-1204) CDVViewController-loaded view doesn't respect applicationFrame
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2012 01:57:02 GMT
Kevin Hawkins created CB-1204:

             Summary: CDVViewController-loaded view doesn't respect applicationFrame
                 Key: CB-1204
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: iOS
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0, 1.9.0, 1.8.1
         Environment: Mac OS X Lion, Xcode 4.4, iOS SDK 5.1.
            Reporter: Kevin Hawkins
            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah

If you take the Cordova template app and, instead of using:

[self.window addSubview:self.viewController.view];

to display the view in the AppDelegate, you use the more recommended (for iOS >= 4.0) method

self.window.rootViewController = self.viewController;

to display the view, there is a positioning difference for the web view, due to the fact that,
in the latter case, self.viewController.view's frame is not being set at the appropriate time.
 This sets the view's frame to the entire height and width of the device.  I.e. it doesn't
account for the space taken up by the status bar.  This can be easily verified by making an
index.html page with an h1 header at the top, and toggling which code line you use to display
the view, from the given lines above.

The solution to this is to set the view's frame in viewWillAppear in CDVViewController:

- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated
    self.view.frame = [[UIScreen mainScreen] applicationFrame];
