Android keyboard display affects initial viewport sizing
In my application, when running natively on Android I have a login form panel being display. When first loading up the application and getting the keyboard to display on the screen on one of my input fields, the app only takes up half the screen, the other half being the space reserved for the Android keyboard. When the keyboard hides, the viewport does not resize to the full screen dimensions, so I end up with white space. I can only get around this with a screen orientation change to force the viewport to resize correctly.
How can I sort this out please?

Android sucks to be honest, why wouldn't they just scroll the page up so the field is in view instead of resizing.
Anyway, the one time I had this issue I need to force a reflow, I set the height as 99% and then set it to 100% and that worked for me.Mitchell Simoens @LikelyMitch

I'm starting to look into this issue right now.
I have an app that is experiencing this issue very often (on Android 2 and 4).
Is there already any general workaround / fix for that?
If so, couldn't that be incorporated into ST's Android Viewport class?
