Typed Characters Not Showing In WebView after HTC One 4.3 Update
My users are reporting that after updating their HTC One devices to 4.3 they are no longer able to enter any text into the <input>'s of HTML displayed in my WebView based application. The keyboard shows up, the users hit the keys, but the text field just remains blank.
I have been able to find similar reports on the web, and lots of general issues with the WebView widget in many HTC devices, but nothing very specifically spells out a solution.
A similar issue was reported on xda-developers with a video posted on youtube, but the OP never posted the solution:
Here is the youtube video by the old post which shows the problem:
The product is developed and tested on a Nexus 7 (2013) running 4.3 without incident.
Has anybody else seen this behavior on HTC devices? Any tips on a workaround? Has HTC recognized the issue? Why are there so many problems with WebView on HTC devices?
