Mobile inputs virtual keyboard Next button on Android not working

Hello everyone!

The virtual keyboard next key is not working on android devices. On iOS everything is fine, when you press the next key it triggers the input action, but on android that never happens, is this normal?

Hi JT,

Sorry for the late reply.

No, it's not normal... It should work...

In order to help, you'll need to provide more context:

  1. Is it happening in all android devices?
  2. Is it happening with all input types?
  3. Is it in OutSystems mobile or OutSystems web responsive?
  4. Which version of OutSystems UI are you using?
  5. Have you tried to create a simple application, with a form and see if it happens?
  6. Do you have a sample where it is happening that you can share?

Cheers,

RG

Hi JT,

I've noticed something interesting on my side, which is I have one app built by me using a less recent version of OutSystems UI (let's call it A) and another one built recently (clearly newer version of OutSystems UI (let's call it B).

On application A, I can see exact the same behavior that you see.

On application B, it works as it is suppose.

I'll also check what I might have different between apps.

Cheers,

Hello Ruben.


Can you tell me the version of Outsystems UI you are running? I am running Version 2.0.9, its supposed to be the latest version.

Hi JT,

After analyzing my apps I found the pattern...
For the "tab" to work, your inputs, are required to be inside a form element (as simple as that):

It worked for my application A (that also didn't have this behavior).

Try it, and if works, mark this post as the answer, for future reference.

Cheers,

Hello Rubens. Thanks onde again for your reply. 

Unfortunately that is not the issue, on my case is single inputs where the android keyboard will not submit using the next button. On iOS you can click "Done" to submit the input and close the keyboard, whereas on Android you are requires to click on a button to submit the info, since the button on the virtual keyboard wont do anything.
