Android keyboard not working in webview after a validation

I have an android application , which opens a Jquery mobile site in webview . This page contains almost 20 form fields.Keyboard works well , i can able to give input until i type 6 digit number in a input[type=number] box which has a maxlength=5 attribute. After this keyboard stops working . when i click a element , get focused and keyboard popups but it is not getting the value from keyboard

what might be the problem ? how to get rid of this ?

Main Activity

        mWebview  = new WebView(this);
        mWebview.getSettings().setJavaScriptCanOpenWindowsAutomatically (true);
        mWebview.addJavascriptInterface(new WebAppInterface(this), "Android");

In Manifest XML

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW"/>

HTML in webview

<div class="clsRow">
    <div class='clstdLeft' style='width:50%;'>
        <label>Additional Discount </label>
    <div class='clstdRight'>
            <input type='number' maxlength=5  value=0>
</div><div class='clear'>   </div>

I am not having this problem in iball slide (4.0.3), I have a problem in HCL me connect-v3 (4.1.2) . As it is a private application for our employees we are going to use this on these tablets



If your layout have TabHost (or similar layout or view), TabHost's child may disturb your webview's focus.

I have same problem and I set these view's focusable attr to "false" and works fine.

for (int i = 0; i < tabHost.getTabWidget().getChildCount(); i++) {

Try change your "maxlength=5" to onkeypress="if(this.value.length > 4) return false;"
