On iOS devices, new page loads at previous page position

Solved

When I click a link that is well down the page, the new page does not load at the top of the page, but rather at the previous page position. For example, if I scroll 1000 pixels down a page and then select a link, the new page loads already scrolled 1000 pixels down the page rather than at the top of the page. Also, page scrolling is now choppy instead of smooth, but this is a lesser issue.


It looks like someone replaced the iOS code with the Android code, because I used to see these two issues whenever I ran an Android prototype on an iOS device.

Hi Vasken,


There is an update planned for september where this issue will be solved.


Until then, unfortunately, you will have to use a workaround:


Draw a dynamic panel, make it larger than the screen in the direction you want the screen to be scrollable. Then when everything is drawn, all the items in place... make the panel the same size as the screen and remember to enable the scrollbars for the dynamic panel.


Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.


Best,


Marc

Hi Marc - I'm having this same problem. I tried to use the workaround but it's not working. Is there something I'm missing? Should all my screen elements and hotspot be sitting inside the dynamic panel?

Can you send the prototype to jim.support at justinmind.com please? We will take a look to see why is not working.

Ah, it's okay. I realized the the dynamic panel needed to be shorter than the content within it so that *it* scrolls instead of the browser.
