Flex Mobile soft Keyboard issue with Thai / Korean Languages

Philippe Mouawad
Hello,
We have a mobile application that uses Flex 4.6 (Air 3.3) that is deployed
on Android Tablets and IPad ones (IPad 1 & 2, IOS 5.1.1 9B296).
Users from Thailang / Korea are reporting a problem with the soft keyboard
which does not propose the Thai or Korean keyboard while native application
do propose it.

But it seems soft keyboard is not implementing "International Keyboard"
feature of iPad nor using the Thai or Korean keyboard if only one keyboard
(Thai or Korean) is configured:

   - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4509

To be clear, on iPad you can configure more than one keyboard among which
for example Thai or Korean keyboards.

But it seems current implementation of Flex 4.6/ Air 3.3 , 3.4 do no
propose the "Globe" button to switch to the added keyboards. So only
occidental Keyboard are proposed to user.
Even if you switch the device to Thai or Korean and have only 1 thai or
Korean device then you always stay with the Occidental keyboard.

It seems strange to me but is it possible  ? Or am I missing something.
Is it a planned feature (I looked on JIRA but didn't find it) or a known
issue ?


Thank you very much for your help on this.

Regards
Philippe

Hello,
I got an answer to my mail from Paras Sheth (thanks to him) , who told me
to force mobile skin:


   - <s:TextInput skinClass="spark.skins.mobile.TextInputSkin"/>
   - <s:TextArea skinClass="spark.skins.mobile.TextAreaSkin"/>


As my project takes some time to build for iPad, I created a new blank
project and it worked so I thought it was that.
So I impacted it  on my project and it didn't work.

I searched for some time, and finally came to a strange idea. I noticed my
first TextInput fields had displayAsPassword set to true.
So I made a little test with:


   - 1)<s:TextInput/>

and

   - 2) <s:TextInput displayAsPassword="true" />


And BINGO, there is a bug:

1) If I first go to first field, International Keyboard appears
2) I go to second one, it disappears
3) I go back to first one, no more International Keyboard


Setting displayAsPassword="true" breaks soft keyboard.
