I’m trying to enable some form of auto-correction for ion-input and ion-textarea components in an Ionic 2 app. Regardless of what I try, all forms of spell checking and assistance seem to be disabled in the app. I’m struggling to find any information on the topic - the only questions that pop up seem to be asking the opposite (i.e. how to disable spell check).
The target Android version is 4.4, but I’ve also tested quickly on 6.0. Regardless of what Android’s auto-correction is set to (e.g. Aggressive), and with Word suggestions set to on, none of these features seem to be invoked inside the resulting Ionic app at all. The user just gets a basic keyboard, no warnings about spelling, word suggestions, auto-correction, etc. I’ve tested the keyboard settings in the SMS editor as well as Chrome / Android browser to ensure they are taking effect, and they are. So the effect seems to be limited to the WebView used by Ionic / Cordova.
This was starting to sound like more of a Cordova topic, but searching in that context also was fruitless.
Does anyone have further info on the topic, or a solution? Thanks in advance.
