[SOLVED] Refocus On Edit Field

Post by Googie85 » Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:45 am

Hi Guys,

When I focus on an edit field, the keyboard presents fine, but after I move from the edit field, and refocus on it, the keyboard dose not reappear.

Any Ideas?

Many Thanks,

Matthew.

Do you mean that this is running on Android or iOS and the onscreen keyboard appears?

Well, you could intercept the message, which would be openField, and possibly pop the keyboard that way?

Code: Select all

on openField -- triggered when clicking in the field
  set the keyboardActivated to true
end openField

Um . . .

How about using on focusIn instead of openField ?

"set the keyboardActivated to true" will never work, because is a message sent to the current card. Can't be set.

I am having the same problem, that is:
- click on a Android (7.0 hardware) field in order to edit. OK
- write your stuff and click on a different field in order to write or edit the second field
- the keyboard disappear (noOK)

This doesn't happens on iOS

Whatever it means, I discovered that if I put this in the 2 fields, the keyboard behave correctly:

Code: Select all

on openField
     if environment() = "mobile" then
          answer "something"
     end if
end openField
Now I only need to find something a little less "intrusive"...

OK. I I put this on the 2 fields, the keyboards behave correctly.

Code: Select all

on openField
     if environment() = "mobile" then
          wait 10 milliseconds
          focus on me
     end if
end openField
It shouldn't need this, tought
