OS 6 - Cursor does not appear in TextField

Scrolling through multiple TextField 's I can see the cursor on the simulators.

 

On the device, the cursor doesn't appear but the scrolling still does occur. The way I found to make the cursor appear on the device is to : press the left shift key but the cursor dissappears again when focus moves to another field.

 

Does anyone know some workaround to make the cursor appear? It seems that in BBM the cursor does appear in the text fields.

Re: OS 6 - Cursor does not appear in TextField

Does anyone know which UI Component always has the cursor visible?

Re: OS 6 - Cursor does not appear in TextField

The cursor doesn't appear on OS 6 if the TextField has the flag READ_ONLY. Is this a bug?

Re: OS 6 - Cursor does not appear in TextField

I'm having exactly the same problem - on some OS 6.0 devices. Any clues?

 

Thanks!

Not a bug as far as I am aware. This behavior can also be seen in 7.0 simulators.

Re: OS 6 - Cursor does not appear in TextField

It does seem like intended behavior but I need to be able to turn the field in "cursor visible" mode programmatically (as if user pressed 'shift' key). Thanks.
