Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33166) Mobile TextInput with native StageTextInput cannot be included in scrollable forms
Date Mon, 25 Nov 2013 15:43:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33166?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13831561#comment-13831561

Colin Childs commented on FLEX-33166:

I was finally able to nail down a solid reproducible test case for one of my recent bugs logged
about Android. Tested on Samsung Galaxy S1 and Galaxy Tab 7.0  2. When transitioning from
a TextArea to a numeric TextInput, the keyboard stays as the default keyboard instead of the
numeric one, and although the TextInput appears focused, it has no blinking carat and typing
does nothing. With proxy debugging on, it looks like it is NOT showing the proxy at this point.
Sometimes on slower devices, you can actually see the numeric keyboard come up, then switch
to the default one instead. It looks I could only get this to happen when the TextArea is
on the bottom of the screen, below the area where the softkeyboard will show. To reproduce,
simply create a new Flex mobile project and place a TextArea inside a Scroller at the bottom
of the screen and put a numeric TextInput above that. You may need 50+ px of padding between
the two components. Tap on the TextArea to bring up the softkeyboard, then tap on the numeric
TextInput to bring up the numeric keyboard. At this point, the numeric input will have a default
keyboard instead. This may have something to do with the fact that the screen pans up to show
the TextArea, then pans back down a little after the TextInput gains focus. Note that you
will probably need to set the keyboard behavior to "pan" in order to get the screen to raise
up high enough to show the numeric TextInput.

My test case:

<s:Scroller width="100%" height="100%">
  <s:VGroup gap="50" horizontalAlign="center" verticalAlign="bottom"
    <s:TextInput width="90%" softKeyboardType="number" />
    <s:TextArea width="90%"/>

Additionally, I am not sure, but I believe there may be an issue with Scroller panning behavior
when softKeyboardBehavior is set to "none". With a non-StageText skin, the Scroller will pan
up to show the field even when softKeyboardBehavior is set to "none" instead of "pan". With
ScrollableStageText, it remains hidden behind the softkeyboard.

> We should be able to configure a text field which only accepts numerical input to call
up the numeric pad. However, the skinclasses for the textfield that can call up the number
pad will not scroll--If you try to use the skinclass that can call the softkey number pad
in a scrollable container, the textfield scrolls away from its text.
