Text scrolls in OS5 browser when cursor inside

Hi, I'm pretty new to WebWorks dev. I have a few input type="text" boxes laid out in some table cells, one per td. When the cursor enters the text box and you happen to move the cursor to the right, all the text scrolls out the left hand side of the input box. If you move the cursor back left the text scrolls back in from the left !

 

What's happening!

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is in BB OS5 browser. Someone must have encountered this?

 

Any workarounds for this behaviour?

Re: Text scrolls in OS5 browser when cursor inside

I'm not aware of any workaround for this issue.  It definitely should not be scrolling like that. The OS 5.0 browser was the last BlackBerry web platform to be powered by the older MIDP-based browser engine, and rendering issues like these are not uncommon.

 

Have you tried setting the "size" or "maxlength" properties for your input field?
