TextInput restric like spark/mx.TextInput

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.

Re: TextInput restric like spark/mx.TextInput

hey john,

 

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!

Re: TextInput restric like spark/mx.TextInput

I think a few people will owe you a beer to w if there is every a PB conference.

 

That was it!

 

Also, restrictive use is set to '^Q' if you done want to allow the leter 'Q' typed in.
