Light weight Auto-Completes "Cancel" is not working properly.



When you click on the Light weight Autocomplete a specific screen is opened with a Autocomplete field in it.To close the screen we have a cancel button on the top of it.On click of Cancel it has to enter the previous screen as per the expectation instead of that it is performing the action beneath the Cancel button.This is Working perfectly in Android and not working in Iphone (Only Mobile Specific issue)
