This publication describes a form-in-place adhesive gasket used to create a waterproof seal between mating surfaces of an electronic device. The form-in-place adhesive gasket includes an elongated foam seal that is compressible and filled with a curable liquid adhesive. During assembly of the electronic device, compressive forces between the mating surfaces of the electronic device squeeze the elongated foam seal to discharge the curable liquid adhesive from open ends of the elongated foam seal. The discharged curable liquid adhesive fills gaps in regions between the open ends of the elongated foam seal and other barriers that may seal portions of the electronic device.
