The 2.0 OS update added a new Predictive Text keyboard add-on (auto-correct/suggestions).
From a quick review of the various AIR apps on my PlayBook I see that it does not work in them (Conqu, Files and Folders, Poynt, etc). Is there a way to enable this feature in an AIR app for PlayBook?
Thanks for your help!

The "way to enable it" is to contact each developer of the respective apps and ask them to add the capability to their apps. (Each app has a Support email address listed in its App World entry, for things like this.)
It is not automatically available, but requires changes to the code to take advantage of a new set of components which support the predictive text, spelling, and so on.

I'm not 100% certain that the predictive text keyboard is directly coupled to these new components, but spell-checking, at least is, and I assume the PT keyboard comes along for the ride: https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/air/apis/qnx/f

Does that mean you can't get a predictive keyboard in conjunction with a flash.text.TextField ?
And did you figure out how exactly you get it on a fuse text component? Looking at the TextInputBase I can't see anything that would set it ...

Ah, thanks, Peter.
(I wrote my own multi-line input and being close to release now (and close to the Free Playbook offer deadline :-)) I didn't want to swap it out for the new textarea - but the predictive keyboard really would be good to have. Maybe I'll just bite the bullet ...)
