    Default Textfield cursor floating in iOS mobile safari

    Touch version tested:
    • Touch 2.0.1, Touch 2.2.1

    Browser versions tested against:
    • iOS 6 mobile safari

    • When giving a text field or textareafield focus and then scrolling the form by touching inside the text field and dragging, the cursor (and possible selection) appears floating over the form panel.

    Steps to reproduce the problem:
    • open the Sencha Touch Kitchen sink app on iOS 6
    • go to Interface -> forms
    • put the cursor inside a text field
    • tap and drag inside the text fied

    See attached screenshots.

    Thanks for the report. This is a known issue TOUCH-3765. Unfortunately Engineering has determined that there is nothing we can do on our end to work around this issue as it is the behavior of the operating system.

    Default Workaround

    I made this workaround that works for me, you may want to change the class I'm overriding.
    Basically what I'm doing is removing the focus of the textfields whenever I'm scrolling the form panel.
    Ext.define('decom.view.override.FormPanel', {
        override: 'Ext.form.Panel',
        initialize: function(){
            if( this.getScrollable() ) {
                var el = this;
                    var textfields = el.query('textfield');
                    for( i in textfields){
                        var textfield = textfields[i];
