Re: ( More ) More Issues With TextInput on Flex 4.16 AIR 25

Paul Moreau
Hi folks,

Am I the only person having endless issues with text inputs on mobile devices?

Although the previous issue I reported seems to have been resolved with build 140 of AIR ( Released March 29th 2017 ) there is a new issue ( on iOS ) where the text doesn't always appear in text inputs / areas until the component receives focus.

This does not occur 100% of the time but its fairly frequent on all iOS versions I've tested on.

Steps to reproduce: ( sample view attached )

1. Add text inputs / text areas to a view and programatically set the text property.

2. Open the view a few times and text will not appear in at least one of the text inputs.

I have tried changing the skin class but to no avail.

Does anyone have a workaround by chance?

Thanks,

Paul

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:
