(This is kind of an "add-on question" to this one: http://developer.appcelerator.com/question/5551/maskingscrolling-views )
I'm using a smaller map view inside a scroll view. The scroll view should be only scrolled programmatically but not by actual user interaction (possible?). One of the reasons for this is, that you can't move the map otherwise. I've tried to accomplish this by creating the scroll view with
touchEnabled = false;
but naturally all touch events are now passed to the next window in the stack and I can't interact at all with the content of the scroll view anymore.
Any ideas on how I could get this (unfortunate) combination to work?
P.S.: In retrospect to my earlier issue with scroll views: Is it possible to disable the automatic scrolling for text fields/areas when focused? I'm scrolling the view now manually and the field seems to jump now the last 20px or so.
When you create the map view, try setting
scrollEnabled:false- that might get you down the road of where you need to go.
If that doesn't work, what you might need is the Google Static Maps Image API - using this service, you could get an image to place in a scroll view and have the level of control you need over scrolling.
