Hello Redishman,


The reason the keyboard appears is due to the point of contact proximity to screen elements. Essentially, the simulator believes that as the point moves over a text field, you intend to begin editing. If you would like to disable the keyboard from showing you may either deselect the 'editable' value from the properties menu of each text widget or simply choose a point to initiate scrolling that will not pass over the fields.

Thank you for your solution!


Unfortunately, I did check the "Editable" box eventually and that fixed the issue, but in the same time I've wanted to be able to show the text fields are editable and show the keyboard.


I also believe I need to have all the elements I want to scroll down inside the dynamic panel..

Hello Redishman,


Unfortunately, since the editable property and keyboard are linked together, having both functions occur is not possible at this time. As for the dynamic panel, an easy way to place all the needed items is to oversize the panel to accommodate the elements while editing mode is on, then resize the panel to fit the device screen. Then simply right click the panel to select 'exit edit content' and that should do the trick.


Best,


Luisa
