White screen when closing Android keyboard

HapaxHapax Member ✭✭

I'm creating an hybrid application with WebView system and I have an issue with Android : when I tap on an input, the keyboard shows up, I write what I want and when the keyboard disappear, he leaves a white background that makes its size.

Here is a screeshot of the problem. First screen is when the keyboard is open and the second one is when the keyboard is closed.

I did a lot of research and still haven't found a good solution...

Here is my MainActivity :

And here my androidManifest :

I’ve tried almost every windowSoftInputMode but none seem to work.
Do you have any idea to help me ? Thanks in advance.

    Try to set WindowSoftInputMode to SoftInput.AdjustNothing or SoftInput.SoftInput.AdjustResize.

    [Activity(Label = "@string/app_name", Theme = "@style/AppTheme", MainLauncher = true,WindowSoftInputMode = Android.Views.SoftInput.AdjustResize)]
    //WindowSoftInputMode = Android.Views.SoftInput.AdjustNothing

    AdjustResize: the window will be adjusted to accommodate the soft input window.
    AdjustNothing: The window will not be resized, and it will not be panned to make its focus visible.

    Thank you for your answer but I have already tried all WindowSoftInputMode ... None seem to work.

    Does this issue occur on all devices? Or is it only for certain levels or devices?

    Looks like the bug mainly happens on recent devices

    If it is confirmed to be a bug, you can report the issue on github.
