    Default [CLOSED-591] scrolled text jumps back

    Sencha Touch version tested:

    • 1.0 rev ____

    • only default sench-touch.css

    Platform tested against:

    • iOS 4


    • Created a panel with text that goes offscreen.
      Panel is set to scroll vertically.
      Text scrolls with touch/drag, but when released goes back to original position.
      This makes it impossible to reach the bottom of the text.

    Test Case:

     <!DOCTYPE html>
         <title>scrolling test</title>
         <link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css">
         <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <body><div id='container'></div></body>
    <script type="text/javascript" >
    // create multiline sampletext with "TOP OF FILE" on first line and "END OF FILE" on last line
    var sampleText = '<p>The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>';
    for (var i = 0; i < 6; i++) sampleText += sampleText;
    sampleText = '<p>TOP OF FILE</p>' + sampleText + '<p>END OF FILE</p>';
        tabletStartupScreen: 'img/tablet_startup.png',
        phoneStartupScreen: 'img/phone_startup.png',
        icon: 'img/icon.png',
        glossOnIcon: false,
        onReady: function() {
          new Ext.Panel({
            renderTo: 'container',
            scroll: 'vertical',
            html: sampleText
    See this URL : http://

    Steps to reproduce the problem:

    • load file, drag with finger, text will scroll
    • release finger, text will jump back to the top of the file

    The result that was expected:

    • scrolled text would remain in position

    The result that occurs instead:

    • scrolled text springs back

    This is because you are not setting a height on the panel. This will mean it gets autoHeight, thus there won't be anything to scroll. Marking this as closed.

    Default Setting Height doesn't work

    I'm setting the height and this is not solving this problem.
