Disable overScroll in QNXStageWebView

[ Edited ]

I am trying to disable the bounce back / overScrolling on the playbook QNXStageWebView control, but I haven't been able to do it and I haven't found anything online.


I am working with Adobe Flex 4.6 and Tablet SDK 2.1


Anyone knows how to do this? If its not possible, any suggestions on how to work around this issue?

Re: Disable overScroll in QNXStageWebView

You could probably do it by inserting a meta tag in the header of the loaded HTML, e.g.


<meta name="viewport" id="viewport" content="width=device-width,height=device-height,initial-scale=1.0,user-scalable=no" />


Another way might be via a bit of extra CSS:


body {


Or you might be able to do it by injecting some JavaScript&colon;


document.addEventListener('touchmove', function(e) {
    return false;
}, false);

Re: Disable overScroll in QNXStageWebView

Thanks for the quick response, but I was looking for a native AS3 fix instead of the CSS/JS since I not always load content that I have control over.

Any other ideas?
