I have a BlackBerry Bold v5.0.0.0400 (Platform 22.214.171.124). My web application is using a simple textbox:
<input type="text" class="amount" name="amount" id="amount" maxlength="10" />
On the blackberry, I click on the textbox. I enter a few characters. Then I slide the cursor to the right (without clicking on it). All the characters I enter slide left and disappear. Even if I click on anywhere outside the textbox, it looks empty. I can see the text again only if I slide the cursor to the left.
The problem is that some users find this annoying and they think that it is not safe (especially in this case where the user enters the amount field). They want to see what they entered all the time.
I understand that in order to navigate the characters in a textbox we use the touchpad. But how come it allows me to go beyond the characters I write and slide all the way to the right and show me the white space? Is there any solution for this issue?
