I am really enjoying the KendoUI Mobile set, but I can't seem to get text or numeric inputs working on Android!  I am running the "Forms" demo example code from the KendoUI Demos page.  I am running inside of Phonegap.

When I focus an input field, the keyboard comes up.  When I type into the keyboard (virtual or physical), nothing gets entered into the field.

Any idea what is going on?  I've tried on the emulator (4.1) and real hardware (2.2.3) both without any luck.  I am using KendoUI Beta v2012.2.621.

Thanks,
Brian

Hello Brian,

We are using some specific hacks to avoid the duplicate input issue in all Android devices. Please consult this document in the documentation about the limitations and how to switch off the hack if needed.

I try it with phonegap 1.9.0 and  i have the same problem. but in phonegap 1.8.1 it works, only one problem  - i can't make it open numeric keyboard, whatever type the input has, it always opens the standard text keyboard.
I get this problem in  android 4.0.3 simulator as well as on the real device (e.g. galaxy note(android version 4.0.3)). Before updating the kendoui new version it was working ok with this code <input type="number" />

Hello Arshak,

Unfortunately that's one of the effects of the workaround in our CSS - newer input types are treated as input type text. Use the CSS from the documentation article to switch the workaround off. I've updated the docs to mention that effect too.

Just experienced the defect on my new Nexus 7. There is a bug in Phonegap 1.9.0 that prevents input fields from working on Android Jelly Bean. Upgrade to Phonegap 2.0.0 to fix the issue.
