    I have a peculiar problem with Samsung Galaxy Tab GT-P7500 (with Android 3.1)
    When I clicked on any of the editable control in my web page, soft keyboard comes and its disturbs the alignment & make the controls in the page to overlap.

    Similar problem also occurs, even without keyboard, in the landscape orientation.

    Is anyone have similar problem and have pointers to fix this problem

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hello pvalli, and welcome to Android Forums. I placed your question in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 forum here for you, where others with that device can lend some assistance. ;)

    For what it's worth, some 3rd party keyboard apps available in Android Market, most free, are configurable as to when they appear on the screen.

    Are you actually using the keyboard to perform the edits on your website, or does it pop up and just get in the way? If it's the latter, you can just press the down-arrow ("˅") on the soft keyboard to make it go away.

    Hi Mr Lucky, thanks for the reply.

    When I clicked on a textbox, soft keyboard comes up, meanwhile it makes the controls in the page to overlap to each other.
