I have a URL where User can Input in a Field.

When I open that URL with the Android Browser and click in the Field
the Virtual Keyboard pops up.
When I open the same URL with my WebView and click in the Field the
Virtual Keyboard does NOT appear?!

What Do I have to do?

Webview dont open Virtual Keyboard?

After the dialog, the virtual keyboard did not appear when selecting the
My assumption was that it could not get focus.

I changed the interface to avoid the dialog box and that worked for me.

It may be entirely unrelated, but perhaps it is a clue.
