Re: KeyBoard doesnt get suspended

A quick (and dirty) workaround could be to hide then unhide the input element that has focus. Until we get APIs to manage the keyboard directly, that's the first thing that comes to mind.


I would recommend also logging a Bug Report here for the general BlackBerry 10 browser:



I would expect default behaviour to be simply that if you're submitting a form, the keyboard would not be needed on the current input element any longer.
