[GH #6286] Prevent iOS keyboard when clicking on a cell

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fce670d2180> #<Tag:0x00007fce670d2040>

Is there a way to prevent the iOS keyboard from opening when a cell is clicked?

On iPad its difficult to scroll the table as any touch event will open the keyboard. Can the keyboard be open only when the cell enters edit mode on double touch?

Hi @nicola

I just tested this page https://handsontable.com/docs/javascript-data-grid/numeric-cell-type/ on my iPhone 13, and the keyboard does not open on a single click (only on a double click, which is intended). Do you test the latest version? If so, please tell me what your device and browser are.

Hi @aleksandra_budnik,

I tested the same page on my iPhone 13 and it works correctly, but on my iPad 8th Gen Safari the issue remains as described above.

Ah, I see. So it has to be this issue https://github.com/handsontable/handsontable/issues/6286

There appeared again bug related to pop up a keyboard on every cell tapping

and it is only on iPads.

This issue is closed as it is part of a Mobile-fixes scope. I will inform you as soon as we fix it, but I have to admit that a11y and themes are on our radar at the moment, and they have a highest priority.
