alignInputs

Summary

Adjusts touch-mode element overlays, realigning them over their base elements.

Syntax

keyman.alignInputs(elements);

Parameters

elements
Type: array optional
A list of elements with touch overlays to be repositioned on the page. When not provided, all such elements will be realigned.

Return Value

undefined

Description

To prevent a system-level keyboard from displaying on mobile devices, KeymanWeb uses "touch-alias" overlay elements over webpage inputs to intercept typing requests and instead display its own keyboard for use. KeymanWeb does its best to keep the overlays on top of their original elements, calling this function as needed.

As there have been occasional bugs related to these overlays, this function exposes the ability for a web designer to manually trigger realignment to facilitate more intuitive behavior for end users in case a workaround is ever needed for a bug in the future.

Example

keyman.alignInputs();
