    Scrolling using keyboard TAB button (google Chrome)

    Asked by tashes on May 12, 2012 at 01:11 AM


    trying jotform embed either with joomla or facebook, with Google chrome, if press TAB button on my keyboard to move from one field to the next the cursor goes to the next field but when needed the page does not scrol down accordingly (if the form is larger than the screen). Although the scroll bar is present and scroll can be accomplished manually, this is not the proper behavior, as many user are used to press the TAB button without having to scroll using their mouse from one field to another. The same form works like a charm on IE.

    Am i missing anything?

    Hi tashes,

    Do you have a URL to of the website you mentioned where the form was used?
    We will check further.

    I did try your form as stand-alone and uses the TAB navigation on the fields, when it reaches the lower portion(since the height is bigger than screen) the scrolling automatically happened and displayed on the screen the fields that are initially hidden by vertical scroll bar.

    Please update us. Thanks.

    As a stand alone the form works normaly. the problem emerges on:



    and also on facebook iframe: http://www.facebook.com/collegeelysee/app_423027144382791

    Actually the TAB button still works on the lower parts, but you need to scroll manually to see the lower parts. the same happens if you try to scroll upward using SHIFT+tab to go back.

    Hi Tashes,

    Your form here http://forms.collegeelysee.com/form/21160754151444 works fine. It scrolls down when pressing tab key, while the embedded form on your facebook page doesn't seem to scroll as you've described here. Can you please try to re-embed your form using iframe code? See if this works for you.
