Delete key failing in html standalone?

Post by LeProfBard » Sat May 02, 2020 1:37 pm

Hi,
I have several text fields that capture user input, but when saved as a standalone, the delete/backspace key (Mac) is non-functional. I've tried this in Chrome and in Firefox and will be testing it on other OS and browsers, but I need to fix this. Any suggestions?

To provide some additional information, the Delete key works perfectly in Safari (Mac), but fails on every other browser.

Best is to create a bug report for this on quality.livecode.com/, as it seems you are very clear about it.

Here's a thought . . . .

(Macintosh computer)

The rawKey code for backwards delete is 65288

the rawKey Code for forwards delete is 65535

Now, were I in this sort of position I might try a work-around a bit like this:

Code: Select all

on rawKeyUp RK
if RP = 65288 then
put codePointToChar(0x65288) after field "WhateverYouCallIt"
else
pass rawKeyUp
end if
end rawKeyUp
