[webview_flutter] Keyboard suggestions can be lost #37989

@mklim mklim commented Aug 9, 2019

To reproduce:

  1. Run webview_flutter/example v0.3.11+2 on an Android device using a soft keyboard that normally provides suggestions based on what's been previously typed in a text field.
  2. Tap into a text field. Observe that the soft keyboard is shown as expected.
  3. Enter text. Observe text is correctly entered.
  4. Minimize keyboard using the Android back button.
  5. Tap back into the same text field. Observe that keyboard is shown again as expected.

Expected: Keyboard should display suggestions related to the text field.
Actual: Keyboard does not display anything related to the current text.

This is related to flutter/plugins#1965. InputEvents are being incorrectly handled by WebView after WebView is resized. This could be an underlying issue in Chromium. We should try to reproduce with a non-Flutter app and file a Chromium bug if possible.
