Two questions about the persistent footer navigation bar...
Is it possible to disable the functionality where it is possible to toggle the visibility of the persistent footer nav bar by tapping on the screen? They are used as mandatory navigation buttons, and I don't want to risk the user accidentally hiding the nav bar and not knowing what to do.
On the Android, if the keyboard is displayed, the persistent footer nav bar is re-positioned directly above the keyboard. On the iPhone, this does not happen. Is this behavior possible with the Android? By the time the keyboard is popped up and the navbar is displayed on top of that, it doesn't leave much real estate for the rest of the page.
The above code makes the footer navbar not inherit the page theme and is not persistent.
However, if I close the form tag just above the footer, everything works properly. The problem is, I'm using ASP.NET and I need to have the footer inside the <form></form> tags for my buttons to work properly.
Any suggestions to make this work inside the form? I could possibly move the form tag directly below <body>, but this has other bad side effects.
