As of 10.0.9.388, the input types that use a popup like color, date, datetime, time, month do not show a popup or the keyboard when tapped. If the keyboard is forced up, it shows the HEX number keyboard.

All these fields work fine in the Browser.

Tested with Kitchen Sink and bbUI Samples, and on newer builds.

I am marking this as Gating for R9B since it's such a serious break for input in WebWorks apps. I hope you'll agree.

How to reproduce in browser:

  1. Load the following URL in the browser: http://bit.ly/spnEbA (long URL = http://blackberry.github.com/WebWorks-Samples/kitchenSink/html/html5/inputtypes.html)

How to reproduce in an app:

  1. download (clone repo) kitchenSinkRemote.bar from https://github.com/astanley/share. This is just a web launcher app for the above URL.
  2. Install on a device running 10.0.9.388

Does this have to do with the browser's new WebViews architecture? I am guessing that app is using a new webview to layer this type of content on the screen, and it is not supported in a WebWorks app (yet). Does this tie into the child browser work you guys are playing with?
