Bug Description

On rc-proposed when searching the keyboard often hides momentarily making it possible/likely that the user can accidently select an item when they intend to type a letter instead.

If this is an issue that can not be worked around, potentially an acceptable solution would be to wait to filter the items until the user stops typing.

This seems to have been introduced by the update to UC1.3 in r932. So perhaps this might be an issue other apps that use search (weather? clock?) are also affected.

The text field goes inactive when the filtering changes the view enough and this seems to cause the keyboard to disappear, until the TextField is active again.

Currently the default AppHeader for the MainView is disabled when it's not exposed of if it's "moving". What this seems to do is also disable the header when the data in the view is loading or changing. This means that the music app's search feature currently causes the OSK to show and hide as the contents refresh during a search. Is there a way to override the AppHeader's enabled property?

Here is a simple example of this issue: https://code.launchpad.net/~vthompson/+junk/test-1514143

I'd appreciate a workaround, as we are getting pressure to land the app with UC1.3 support, and also think this needs to be fixed. The C++ header's "moving" property is not behaving as it should.

Unfortunately there's no workaround for this. AppHeader has a binding on enabled, which cannot be worked around. This is indeed a use case we had not thought enough about. Sorry, we'll fix it ASAP!
