Is there a way to control the placement of content in your framer prototype when the keyboard is invoked? I've got an input box in my prototype and when I put focus my content weirdly crops. Image illustrating behavior and example with code here:

TIA for any help!

Hey Jason! Is this issue occurring in Frameless (cc Jay Stakelon)? If you save your prototype to your iOS home screen (thus saving it as a full screen app), this behavior does not happen. I would suppose that it could an app-specific issue and how it handles the UIWebView.

I took a peek as well online regarding preventing scroll on focus, but a number of the solutions are outdated and no one has posted any solutions relating to iOS 8.

Thanks for the note Joshua Tucker / Jason Nelson - will definitely look into this!

Jordan Robert Dobson

Yes. This is a very very very tricky one to handle. Some of it is textsize in your input among other ridiculous things. :/

Thanks everyone. Yeah Frameless was definitely doing something funky but I ended up having different issues with saving my prototype to home. Ended up faking a keyboard to move onto the rest of the prototype. (Thanks for putting out Frameless Jay it's been so integral for my prototyping!)

has anyone made any progress on this issue?
i figured you can use a hidden input field at the top of the screen as a kind of proxy – this keeps the view from scrolling while typing..

yet on focus(), the prototype is still being scrolled, depending on the y position of my last tap – any ideas on how to prevent that?

example on iphone6, tested with frameless on iOS9.01

– in safari, the proxy input doesnt work: the content of my grey input layer representation isnt updated
– in frames, scrolling is successfully prevented (everything works just as i like!)
