iPad (iOS 12.2) - Text Entry Not Working

Post by xucraig » Tue Mar 26, 2019 11:17 am

Product and version: iPowerShell 5.0.144
OS version: 12.2 (was happening with 12.1, too)

I have PSWA set up and running on a Server 2019 Standard server with a self-signed cert for testing. From my iPad in Chrome, I can log in and it accepts input as expected: https://i.imgur.com/Us18BCp.png

I've added the PSWA server to iPowerShell and it logs in successfully. However, no matter what I type in, it doesn't actually submit as expected. The submit button goes grey and nothing happens: https://i.imgur.com/NJpWT7C.png

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but any help would be appreciated.

When using iPowerShell for connecting to PSWA, you should be using the text field at the bottom of the screen where it says "Input commands here..." Simply pressing Enter on the keyboard should post the command to your PowerShell connection. You should NOT be using the SUBMIT button (or anything else on that line) as all of that functionality is duplicated in the input line on the bottom.

Let us know if this helps solve your issue.

Hi Ferdinand,

Unfortunately that didn’t do it. I didn’t describe it well, but I was hitting Enter on the keyboard. But when I do, the Submit button turns grey.

I see. Can you supply specifics on the iPad model? It may take me a while to replicate your environment to see if I can replicate the problem, but I am looking into it.

Thank you for your patience on this. I have replicated this issue on several iPads, from an iPad Pro to an iPad mini. The problem seems to be that the PowerShell web page no longer seems to respond to any javascript that the app sends to it. This includes the initial javascript that sends a set of commands to the webpage to resize itself so that the bottom bars of the PSWA web page are not visible. But obviously it also affects any PowerShell commands that the app sends via javascript, so the whole interface is broken.

This will take some time to determine if this is a security change within the PSWA system which may stop this mechanism from working altogether.
