Can you please provide some images or a video of the issue you are mentioning since I'm not sure that I understand it correctly. My main concern is the "layout view shifts on top" expression. I don't understand it completely. A video or images will greatly help.
So I can't be sure if we are talking about the same thing, but you can disable web view scrolling when the keyboard shows up with the Telerik Verified Keyboard Plugin
. You just need to add it to your project and use this line in the deviceready event handler function:
// false to enable again
You can easily add the plugin to your project by right clicking on your project -> Manage Packages -> Plugin Marketplace -> Find the Keyboard plugin and click Install.
Let me know if this helps. I'm looking forward to your reply.
