Keyboard Overlay

When my staff use the apps I have created on an android device, the on screen keyboard covers the inputbox they are attempting to use. I have tried adding onselect logic that alters the y coordnates of the control to no avail. Is there a way to fix this? It very quickly loses the feel of a mobile app when this occurs, as any other application on a phone is able to account for the keyboard opening and closing.

Re: Keyboard Overlay

Hi Nicholas,

 

What’s the version of the Android device? Have you tried with another device to run this app to see if you would get the same issue?

 

I run an app on my iPhone, and the version is 9.3.5, the keyboard doesn’t cover the Input box.

 

Please try to run this app on another mobile device to see if you could still get the same issue. Please feel free reply.

 

Best regards,
Mabel Mao

Re: Keyboard Overlay

Thank you Mabel, I have been out of pocket for the holidays, but I will test another device tonight. I, and many of my users are on various android devices. Mine in particular is a Galaxy s7 edge running 6.0.1.

 

The app is nothing more than a basic form posting data back to a sharepoint list. When an input box is tapped, the keyboard covers it completely.

 

I will reply with my findings on another device by Monday.

 

Again, thank  you!

Re: Keyboard Overlay

Hi

 

In fact, Keyboard overlay issue can be easily overcome by sliding the screen and then you will be able to see what is underneath.

However, this is NOT soemthing users want. (Not user friendly).

 

If you look at PowerApps sign-in page itself, it already showed that PowerApps user sign-in and password sign-in also having keyboard overlaying on the input box. I DON'T WHY PowerApps team has not mentioned or improved this from DAY 1 until 343 days.

 

Meantime, the keyboard overlay issues (in my case), happened 50:50.

I am using (as well as my customers) highlighted to me that sometimes the input area will move up automatically when keyboard is pop-out but not all the time.

 

I wish PA can look into this even from the time you sign in to PowerApps.

(On all devices)

Re: Keyboard Overlay

Hi @hpkeong,

 

Thanks for your feedback about the keyboard overlay issue when sign in PowerApps. When I sign in PowerApps on my iPhone, I don’t get any keyboard overlay issue, but I occurred this on Android.

 

On Android Phone, the keyboard overlaying on the box when I fill in sign in account and password.

 

I will report this from my side.

 

Best regards,
Mabel Mao

Hi @masonjrc

 

They have fixed the keyboard overlay for

- Sign-in

ONLU till today.

 

Keyboard overlay for data entry within the apps environment (screens) are yet to be resolved.

I wish PA will keep in their roadmap as this is a very UnUserFriendly Environment which is suppose not to happen for all kind of phone.

I suppose most of MS Staff use iPhone, where unlike other countries mostly use Android Phone.

 

Hope this will be worked out soon.

Re: Keyboard Overlay

Is there any progress on this for Android devices?

The virtual keyboard covering the input text box is a major issue when trying to develop APPs.
