Subject [jira] [Created] (FLEX-33773) TextInput can't be made programmat‚Äčically editable while it already has focus

Cosma Colanicchia created FLEX-33773:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: TextInput can't be made programmat‚Äčically editable while it already
has focus
                 Key: FLEX-33773
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33773
             Project: Apache Flex
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Spark: TextInput
    Affects Versions: Apache Flex 4.11.0
         Environment: Windows 7 64bit
            Reporter: Cosma Colanicchia
            Priority: Minor


This is the scenario:

1) the component instance start with editable="false"
2) user moves focus to component using the keyboard
3) a particular key press activates editability of the field (through a custom keyDown listener)
4) no cursor displayed, can't type in the field

Notes:
 - this is happening with the default (TLF-based) TextInput skin
 - moving away focus and getting back to it (with keyboard or mouse, or even with an ALT-TAB)
cause the component to start behaving correctly
 - if the instance has been previously editable, the behavior doesn't reproduce
 - if the focus is moved to the component through a mouse click the issue is not triggered

As a workaround, I tried a callLater(textInput.setFocus) on my custom keyDown listener, without
success. Replacing the callLater with a setTimeout also doesn't work (in both cases, it seems
that its setFocus() override of RichEditableText does nothing because the check on the compose
state of the text container manager.
