Android input focus cause zoom


(lid) #1

Android chrome browser
When an input box get the user focus it cause a page zoom. Which can either require the user to pinch out or scroll left and right to see the full content. After leaving the input

This is a known behavior most solution to this issue seem some what hacky.

Setting a certain minimum text size
Or
Disable viewport zoom temporarily
Etc

That’s what I’ve used in the past (iOS has the same zoom behavior) and I think it’s the best solution. I’ll take a look at Android.

I’m looking for this behavior and I’m not actually seeing it happen - can you provide more details? maybe a specific input and android specs?

nexus 4
android 4.2,2
portrait mode
browser: chrome

to replicate go to any topic with multiple posts, then click on the topic progress widget, tap on the inputbox

the browser should zoom in , some of the content will be hidden

let me know if that helps
