    I'm not sure if this is a known issue but I was unable to find any related posts on the forums. On an iPad with iOS 5 or iOS 6, if you press into a numeric textbox, the first press does not bring up the keyboard. The first press only changes the input to numbers only (if it was a currency or percent). The second press brings up the keyboard.

    Is there a way I can change the inputs so that the keyboard opens on the first press?

    I was able to re-create this issue using the Globlization demos found here (as well as my own code):

    Hello Lauren,

    The described behavior is a known issue, which is caused by the inability of the mobile OS to focus the input with JavaScript. The good news is that we addressed the issue in the last internal build available only for paid customers.

    I would like also to suggest you continue our conversation in the support ticket opened on the same subject in order to avoid an duplications.
