Bug with TextBox in iOS - with Capx - Thanks in adance!

  • Problem Description

    The game does not reposition itself correctly after using the keyboard and closing it on iOS (tested on iPad 4 and iPod Touch 4) if the text box is in the lower part of the screen. It worked fine 2 or 3 stables releases ago (but was a problem some time ago before that too, sorry I don't have the number of the well-working release). : /

    Attach a Capx

    Description of Capx

    Just a new project with 2 text box, one in the upper part another one in the lower part. With 2 colored bars at the top of bottom to show that the screen does not replace itself precisely after using/closing the keyboard on iOS.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Step 1: Touch the lower text box on an iPad, type something and then close the keyboard with the lower-right button on the on-screen keyboard.

    Observed Result

    The screen acts strangely when I type, resizing itself after each char sometimes, and when I close the keyboard the higher part of the game is out of the screen area, the game is now 10-20 pixels higher on screen than before using the keyboard, leaving a black gap at the bottom and cutting the upper part of the game

    Expected Result

    The game should stay on-screen when I'm using the keyboard on iPad and not leave any gap after closing the keyboard.

    Affected Browsers

    • FireFox: (NO)
    • Internet Explorer: (NO)
    • SAFARI on iOS: (YES)

    Operating System and Service Pack

  • Geez, Safari is crazy. It works perfectly in Chrome for Android so it looks like an iOS bug. I found a workaround for the next build though, hopefully it will work OK there.

  • Ok, thanks a lot Ahsley! Like I said, it worked fine 2 or 3 versions ago and not before. But, yeah, Safari, especially on iOS have some rules of its own.

    BTW, just a little detail, on iOS, for text box, the "spell check" is still working even if we set it to off in Construct.

    Many thanks!

    P.S.: Oh, yeah, I replied to a closed bug thread but it was just for a small snippet of info, nothing that really need investigation.

    It might get fixed if you submit a new bug report.

    See at the top where it says closed, and Ios?
