More Issues With TextInput on Flex 4.16 AIR 25

Paul Moreau
Hi folks,

I'd normally go to StackOverflow but I usually find that Flex issues posted are normally met with tumbleweed...

I have included an mxml view file if anybody wants to replicate. I tried to include the entire project but the zipped file was too large.

Issue : Text not visible on TextInput until user focuses on another component.

Steps to replicate :
( using Flex 4.16 AIR 25  running on an iOS device  , not an emulator )

Create a TextInput  ( use the default skin )
Navigate to another view
Pop back to original view
Click on TextInput
Type value ( no text appears , caret also not visible )
Click off TextInput ( text appears )

I am using 'DestructionPolicy = never' as I need the user to be able to go to a new form on the fly and then pop back to the main form without losing the data or the scroll position.

I've noticed on iOS 10.0+ , an undo/redo popup appears after pressing back...

Any ideas?

Thanks,

It's been my experience that flash.text.StageText has multiple issues with
AIR 25.0.0.134. I believe that the Flex TextInput uses StageText on mobile,
so you may be running into these bugs.

It looks like there's a new AIR 25 beta on Adobe Labs today, so I think
they're planning to release an update to AIR 25 soon. I see in the release
notes that some StageText issues have been fixed. You might try using that
build instead of the released version.

Since a stable build of AIR 25 has been released, you may not see a beta
build in the Flex SDK Installer anymore. You can overlay the beta AIR SDK
over the Flex SDK manually using these instructions:

Thanks Josh,

Yesterdays AIR update seems to have resolved the issue.
