Bad keyboard behaviour in Point preferences window

I`m not sure if this is desired or undesired, but:


When adding a new point or editing an old one


Just after opening this editing window, the Name of an icon is focused, and my keyboard is showed. That`s fine, I understand that people are coming here and the first thing to do is to edit its name. But if I don`t want to edit the name and I want to just look at the properties of that point - I want to get rid of a keyboard which occupies half om my screen. In this half I hardly see anything when scrolling. But when I`m trying to get rid of a keyboard by pressing "Back" hardware button - whole window is just closing and I`m getting back to the main map screen.


What is even more strange, when I`m clicking on "Choose icon" button, and then I`m coming back from "Choose icon" screen, I`m coming back to the point editing window but without a keyboard showed. And finally I can freely navigate and see the it on a whole screen. Of course, until I will click on any editbox.


So please change a behaviour of the back arrow. If the keyboard is ON, back arrow should just close it.

I checked it in other places ( geocaching tools and editing guiding sounds and beeps) and its fine there. This problem only happens in Point edit screen.

I also found this bad behaviour doesn`t occur when editing/adding new tracks categories.

are you sure it do not happen also on track editing screen? Hmm only function that should affect this is


@Override


public boolean onKeyUp(int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {


// check event


if (keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_BACK) {


clickCancel();


return true;


}


return super.onKeyUp(keyCode, event);


}


but it`s same in both (editing of points and editing of track) activities ...

Confirmed.


I`m going into Tracks,


clicking on icon for adding a new Track folder, (or editing an existing one)


clicking on Name field - at that stage keyboard appears!


clicking on back arrow - keyboard disappears.


So there is a significant difference here - keyboard is not visible when user enters this screen. So maybe this will be a hint for you.

ah you`re talking about creating/editing folders. Please test also editing a tracks. Screen where you edit track folder, track name, track apperance ...


btw. what ROM are you using? Original?

Exactly, I just found it yesterday - same bad behaviour is occurring in track editing screen. After going into Edit, a keyboard is appearing and after pressing back arrow - the whole screen is disappearing.


I`m never using original ROMs. This particular one is MIUI, with Android 4.0.4. And I`m planning to flash a different one in a few hours so I will probably test this behaviour on a new one, so we will see if this is relevant to ROM or device.

Did you make any changes here? I installed a new ROM so I can`t be sure if the behaviour changed because of your intervention or not.

no, I was checking it quite a lot and there were no places I should change that make sense. It`s working correctly in your new rom?
