Disable WebView Application Being Pull Up and Down

I’ve created a hybrid app using Cordova, and notice I’m able to pull the header down and footer up, which lead to weird behaviour when using the app (at least I feel so).

Normal View

Pull Up

Adding single line of configuration in config.xml solve the issue. (pheeew… spend couple of hours to research this)

<preference name="DisallowOverscroll" value="true"/>

Beware when import cordova.js

If you would like to trigger the “deviceready” event fires when Cordova is fully loaded for some plugin usage,

document.addEventListener("deviceready", callbackFunction, false);

you need to include cordova.js in your application.

<script type="text/javascript" src="cordova.js"></script>

OK, you are done.

If you facing some unknown error in console as below even you have whitelist plugin added, cordova.js included,

Uncaught Error: Module cordova-plugin-whitelist.whitelist does not exist.
cordova.js:891 deviceready has not fired after 5 seconds.
cordova.js:884 Channel not fired: onPluginsReady
cordova.js:884 Channel not fired: onCordovaReady

then probably you include cordova.js wrongly as what I did (get from /platforms/android/assets/www/cordova.js)

<script src="asset/js/cordova.js"></script>

NOTE: You does not need to copy cordova.js from anywhere, just include as above mention will do, Cordova will figure out for u 🙂


Netbeans cannot find cordova or git on your PATH but your have already set it ?

You have already set the cordova and git in your PATH, but still facing above mention problem.
Try to rename .bash_profile to something else and restart netbeans.
If that helps, means you have some “dirty” code in your .bash_profile which you may remove it.
(as in my case, I have an echo statement which prevent me to create cordova application)

If it doesn’t, continue google 🙂

p/s: To confirm you have cordova and git in your PATH, there must be version number return when you issue command below in terminal (line by line):
cordova –version
git –version
