    Default Unanswered: Text fields and scrolling

    Has anyone figured out a good way to scroll the view when you click a text field (and the on-screen keyboard appears)?

    In the iPhone's Safari browser, it seems to automatically resize and scroll the viewport so that the field is in view. But this means that if you have something like a toolbar docked at the bottom, it will move up above the keyboard, which you might not want.

    On Android's browser, it doesn't scroll automatically, which means the field you're editing can be obscured by the keyboard.

    Is there a good consistent way to handle this?

    iOS handles this pretty well bringing the field into view without messing with the layout of your app. Android is a pain in this area where you would have to move things to have the field come into view.
