I recently upgraded from a 2011 release to Q1 2012 and my RadWindows no longer scroll on IOS5.  In the previous version, the iframe just expanded outside the bounds of the window, allowing scrolling to be achieved by scrolling the page.  Is there a fix for this, and if it is an implementation choice, is there a workaround, even if this means just falling back to expanding outside the bounds of the window?

Hello Brad,

As far as we know Apple have decided to disable scrolling in iframes. Just before Q1 2012 when the new iOS came out it introduced several breaking changes and we have fixed them already (the overflowing iframe for example, dragging, etc.). Scrolling is, however, limited by the browser and OS, not by our controls. This is a common problem for developers and it can also be found in other forums, e.g.:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4599153/iframes-and-the-safari-on-the-ipad-how-can-the-user-scroll-the-content
or
http://www.lemon8.nl/ipads-and-iframe-scrolling/
or the general google search that will lead to the same results:
http://www.google.com/search?&q=two+finger+scroll+iframe

We are aware of this limitation and if a way around it is found it will be incorporated in our code. In the meantime you can try forcing scrollbars so the content can be scrolled by dragging them instead. An example how to do this is available in this thread, or generally in the net (also in updated posts in the articles I linked above).


All the best,
Marin
