textChanged is not invoked after cutting text

Post by kaveh1000 » Sat Jan 19, 2019 10:27 am

Working on Mac with latest Community version of LC. Cutting text via menu or keyboard shortcut does not invoke textChanged handler. (But pasting does.) Please see attached minimal example.

Hi,
Same result fro me (lC indy 9.0.1)
It works with a simple "cut" message sent by a btn

Code: Select all

on mouseup
   cut
end mouseup
I wonder if that is an IDE behavior
What happens in standalone ?

Tested using ctrl + x on Win7 with Lc 9.0.2, and it doesn't count as a text changed event there, either. It *does* however on 'nix using Lc 6.x, so I'm guessing it is a bug?

I wonder why this does NOT seem to work:

Code: Select all

if the clipBoardData is not empty then
      put "CRAP"
   end if
when I've CUT some text?

Cut

does not behave in the same way as delete
because delete involves an insertion point in a field
while cut involves selectedText.

Hi folks

Just an update that I have reported this and it has been confirmed as a regression bug:

Hi All,
It seems that only concern IDE.
I played with an edit menu created with menu builder and it send a textchanged message on idE or standalone and shortcuts work as expected in standalone (LC 9.0.1 OSX 10.139

That is good to know Jean-Marc, of course, from our perspective (devs) it is important to work everywhere eh :)

Hi Folks

So cutting text will invoked in Standalone but not in IDE due to a bug. Is there any handler I can use in the meantime to detect when text has been cut?

I would suspect you could use the clipboard, since we are talking about cutting/copying operations. One way might be to throw the clipboard contents into a variable, then check if the text in the variable changes.

Hi All
Textchanged also doesn’t work when I put a letter by script into/after/before a field
