TextArea in ScrollView Issue

I can push data to my TextArea but I can't scroll. When I put the TextArea in a ScrollView then nothing works.

Re: TextArea in ScrollView Issue

Did you use page-scrollview-container-textearea pattern?

 

Page 
{
    ScrollView 
    {
        Container 
        {
            TextArea
            {
            }
        }
    }
}

Re: TextArea in ScrollView Issue

Yes, this is the same patter I'm using. I can see the data to display on the console usaing qDebug(), nothing gets to the TextArea when ScrollView in included. I need the scroll the displayed data

Re: TextArea in ScrollView Issue

I think this is a bug in the latest Cascades beta.  I've experienced it as well.  If you touch anything in a ListView that isn't a TextArea, scrolling works just fine.  But the TextArea seems to swallow the touch events.

 

One workaround idea might be to wrap the TextArea in a container, as suggested above, and then set that container's touch propagation policy so the touch events never get passed through to the Text Area.  Of course I'd also suggest writing up a bug report on this.

 

FYI, here's another thread mentioning the same issue:

Re: TextArea in ScrollView Issue

I got the same issue with scrollable TextArea. Sometimes(really rare) when area is not editable it scrolls semi-fine.
