Field Text Input Doesn't Work

Postby RamchuK_Ntertainment » Sat Feb 06, 2016 3:08 pm

When there is a field on an interface with allowed text input, everything works as intended (ONLY during testing of that particular interface), when highlighted the field receives input text from the user's keyboard. This, however, also stops working if the user leaves the interface to another and then comes back. Essentially, it only works once when testing that particular interface... Bug report already sent with a sample to reproduce the issue.

I've heard back from Mike and this isn't a bug. You'll need to make sure you use the "Change Active Interface" event, since many Interfaces can be turned on at the same time - they couldn't all allow inputs which is why simply turning them on isn't enough.
