Strange keyboard when entering SKU in Developement Mode on Dev Alpha B

When I go to Development Mode in the BB World app to enter my SKUI get a strange keyboard thwat has no alpha characters, just numbers and symbols.

 

I've had to change my SKU to be able to type it...

 

The portal lists A-Z,a-z as valid ranges.

Is ths wrong, or is the keyboard wrong?

Re: Strange keyboard when entering SKU in Developement Mode on Dev Alpha B

I was curious why they said SKU was an option there when the set of valid chars in an SKU includes letters.

In any case, you can just use your product id instead... it's shown on the first page of the app when you edit it in the vendor portal, and it's the number in the URL for your app on the web site.

I thought I'd go raise a query in the Issue Tracker, but that seems to having its own troubles today.

 

The page is loading as far as the black menu bar and then refreshing in an endless loop.

This is on Firefox btw.

 

It was working fine for me yesterday Smiley Sad

Try again bobdodd... working fine here. (I didn't try creating an issue, but can browse them.)

It seems to be a Firefox thing, I got in okay with Chrome.

Re: Strange keyboard when entering SKU in Developement Mode on Dev Alpha B

I got the Dev Alpha C today, and it's running BBWorld v4.3 instead of 4.2 as we have on the Z10 and DA A and B.

This issue is fixed in it... I can enter arbitrary text into that field now.

You might as well note this in the ticket, to save whoever gets it the time triaging it, as it's clearly a known issue that's already fixed in the next release.
