Thanks for reporting! I've not this firmware and kindle, but maybe twobob could tell us more about the reasons for which this happens

p.s. sorry twobob, I didn't read before this message:
Code:
is it worth pushing this up to a public repo now?

bitbucket would be a decent choice? or github?

if only the bits that can be tweaked... with a README.md explaining how to get the other files...
Is a nice idea... I just need some time to understand how they work

well it doesn't work at all on my stock 5.1.2 so.. hmm..

I'll have to flatten it and see what happens. How are you invoking it?

A swipe? or via the kual menu?

Thanks

Tried both. Both methods for invoking it work but bring up the keyboard.

@ams, does
Code:
lipc-set-prop com.lab126.pillow customDialog '{"name": "sample_custom_dialog"}'
also bring keyboard up automatically?

P.S. Short reliable command to hide window appeared after previous command is:
Code:
restart pillow

Bitbucket has nice pictorial pages to lead a new user through anything they need to do.

Browse around in some of ours (twobob and I).
https://bitbucket.org/twobob/kual-system

You can find more using that owner/repository finder in the top bar - same nicknames as here.
You can also find other Mobileread nicknames in use there - we aren't the only ones using their free service.

Just consider it 'classwork' because sooner or later you will run into the need to use it in your studies.

Yes, this code does bring up the keyboard along with the dialog box.

It means, Aeris should not blindly use all stock scripts requested in stock sample_custom_dialog.html (if perfect supporting KT is a goal too). On earlier KT firmware(s), one of these scripts shows keyboard unconditionally, right at the dialog's init stage.

EDIT: this is my 666th post.

I need help for this, seen that I've not KT... I left there all the original scripts to be sure, and this solution allowed me also to not distribute copyrighted material. If somebody has got a better solution for this, I'm all ears... also a workaround that on KT-old firmware only hides the keyboard immediatly would be nice

Well, these scripts are written in JavaScript, so they are open for exploring and finding out how they works and tracing implemented algorithms. So after finding it out you'll be able to extract only required bits of functionality in your own script and drop most of stock scripts.

That's what I meant.

Anyway for finding workaround you'll need to understand how keyboard showing works and find it in these scripts, so... it's a more tedious task.
