I have an iPad app and that has a button that slides down to input form. Now, I would like to focus the user on the input, and then launch the keyboard. This is what I tried but it's not working:
$('#myFormField').focus();
It does focus the input but it's still not launching the keyboard. Would am I doing wrong? Is there a way to force a user to tap the input? Thanks!
