Bug Report

Ionic version:

[x] 4.x

Current behavior:

I've got a modal page that contains the following template:


  <ion-searchbar slot="fixed" #search></ion-searchbar>
  <ion-virtual-scroll [items]="items" >
    <ion-item *virtualItem="let item">
      {{ item._id }}

Note that my ion-searchbar has slot="fixed".

My virtual scroll has enough items to allow scrolling of ion-content.

  1. Focus on the searchbar input.
  2. Scroll the list to the bottom.
  3. When you reach the bottom, the list continues to scroll until almost all items are completely obscured from view.

With a sufficiently tall ion-header, you can get into a state where ALL items are hidden.

This issue occurs only on a real device, as it's the height of the on-screen keyboard that dictates the size of the resulting padding-bottom on ion-content.

Expected behavior:

I expect to only be allows to scroll until the last item of the list is at the bottom of the view port, not the top.

Related code & Reproduction Steps:

I've built a sample project that displays this behavior:

  1. Clone repo, npm install and ionic cordova run <platform>
  2. Tap the "Click Me" button, this will launch a modal with ModalPage.
  3. The ModalPage is an Ionic Page with a fixed ion-searchbar at the top and a ion-virtual-scroll beneath it.
  4. Put your cursor in the ion-search-bar and scroll the content area.
  5. As you hit the bottom of the list, notice that the list continues to scroll and leaves a large padding at the bottom of ion-content. In some cases all items may be obscured from view.

Other information:

Inside of @ionic/core's src/utils/input-shims/hacks/scroll-padding.ts the code detects focus to input and adds padding (equal to the height of the on-screen keyboard) to ion-content accordingly.

Theoretically, Giving focus to an input inside of a "fixed" container should not result in any need for adjusting the scroll.

Also experiencing this issue even with --overflow: hidden; applied to the ion-content. It's quite annoying.
