When a mobiscroll windows appears, it is not always in focus for quick TABBING into. It appears the user must tab across all other elements on the page before they can begin tabbing through the wheels in the mobiscroll window.

Reproducing the problem

  1. Visit
  2. To the right of DEMO: Click no Device.
  3. Now click on the input field to show the list.
  4. Tap TAB multiple times to get to the mobiscroll list.....
    You'll notice It takes about 75 TAB presses to get to the mobiscroll popup. (as of Aug. 21st 2013)

SHIFT-TAB works faster, as the mobiscroll element is apparently near the end of the DOM tree (or the end of the TAB order).

My Suggestion

Focus the mobiscroll element (or some invisible element near it) so when the mobiscroll element appears, the user is only one TAB keypress away from highlighting the first wheel.

This would make navigating mobiscroll popups much faster when using only the keyboard.
