    I've noticed this while building a KendoUI mobile page to be used in Phonegap.  

    I've noticed that if you start your touch on an input field (not the label) and try to scroll the entire page, navbar  header  footer  etc, will scroll with the page instead of just the content of the page scrolling.

    Is this normal behavior, if so any easy work around to the problem?

    I'm using version 2013.1.514 (Q1 2013).
    Seem to be most visible in iOS but also happens in Android 4.2 (blue effect on top/bottom).


    ps. first time post if I need to reformat or include anything else in this post please let me know.

    Hello Andrew,

    I am afraid that this is a known limitation - the kinetic scrolling does not work with inputs, in order to allow the native device text navigation within the input (magnifying glass, selection, etc). 

    A workaround for that case would be to use native scrolling for the view in question.
