The QNX TextInput class does not have a restrict property like the mx/spark.TextInput class does. Very handy feature. will we need to roll our own or will the next release of the SDK support this? I am not needing the change in keyboards for things like email and numbers, but character specific to allow or restrict certain types of characters.
Solved! Go to Solution.

have you tried accessing the TextInput object's textField property? its a reference to the inner textfield's object within TextInput. the textfield has a restrict property where you can restrict a user's input. i havent tested it out but in theory it should work. Try the followng:
myTextInput.textField.restrict = "A-Z 0-9";
that should only allow uppercase and numbers. let me know how it works out! good luck!
