Description Dylan 2012-11-21 05:03:37 UTC
I have created a MonoTouch DialogViewController which has a bunch of EntryElements in it used to capture information for a user registering. I then add this DialogViewController into another UIViewController:

            registerDialog = new RegisterDialog (); // the dvc
            registerDialog.View.Frame = new RectangleF (0, 60, 320, View.Frame.Height - 60);
            registerDialog.TableView.BackgroundView = null; // make the background transparent
            Add (registerDialog.View);

The problem comes when the user clicks on an EntryElement. The keyboard shows up and for the first few EntryElements everything is fine as the keyboard does not hide anything. As you progress through the EntryElements, the DialogViewController no longer scrolls the elements above the keyboard. Basically the scrolling of the DialogViewController breaks.

I have placed some screenshots and more information here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13484280/how-can-i-fix-the-scrolling-with-entryelement-in-custom-sized-monotouch-dialog

Is this a bug or is there something I can override to fix the scrolling?

I was not able to reproduce this issue, I but the correct answer to your question is subclass DialogViewController and do your magic instead.
