Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33372) Windows 8 on-screen touch keyboard not displaying
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2013 06:09:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33372?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13567388#comment-13567388

Alex Harui commented on FLEX-33372:

One more question: Are you creating a Flex Mobile application?  Mobile apps do not use RichEditableText
and use TextField like mx:TextInput.

In this issue: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33366 I describe how to swap in
a mobile TextInput skin for a non-mobile app and get the Spark TextInput to use TextField.
 Of course, you have to give up right-to-left text support if you use TextField instead of

>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Spark: RichEditableText, Spark: TextArea, Spark: TextInput
>    Affects Versions: Adobe Flex SDK 4.6 (Release), Apache Flex 4.9.0
>         Environment: Windows 8 Metro
> Internet Explorer (IE) 10.0.1
> Flash Player 11,3,378,5
>            Reporter: Stepan Hilbert
> On-screen touch keyboard is not being displayed for spark RichEditableText based text
input components. It does get displayed when displayAsPassword property is set to true. It
does get displayed for TextField based components.
> Additionally, it would be desirable to control the keyboard using:
> - needsSoftKeyboard property
> - requestSoftKeyboard() function
> These currently have no effect.
> Steps to reproduce:
> 1. Create a Flex application that features s:TextInput, s:TextInput with displayAsPassword="true"
and mx:TextInput
> <mx:TextInput text="mx:TextInput" />
> <s:TextInput text="s:TextInput" />
> <s:TextInput text="s:TextInput password" displayAsPassword="true" />
> 2. Open this application in the Metro Internet Explorer on a touch-enabled Windows 8
PC/Tablet. You might need to edit the DebugDomain variable (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-au/library/ie/jj193557%28v=vs.85%29.aspx)
> 3. Tap the mx:TextInput - on-screen keyboard shows
> 4. Tap the s:TextInput with displayAsPassword="true" - on-screen keyboard shows
> 5. Tap the s:TextInput - on-screen keyboard doesn't show
> Note:
> This bug has been discussed on the web
> (i.e. here: http://flexcoders.10928.n7.nabble.com/windows-8-store-app-onscreen-keyboard-invoking-td111950.html)
> but no resolution has been reached, so that is why I'm logging this issue.
