backspace key problem

I 've add a few EditField so:


_eNickName  = new  EditField("Nickname : ", "", 20, Field.EDITABLE);


I've add also a KeyListener to trap a few key. All work good but only backspace key doesn't work. I tried also to remove the  KeyListener, but the problem there is again.


any idea ?

Re: backspace key problem

When you say it doesn't work do you mean that your KeyListener is not receiving the backspace key or that the backspace key no longer has its default behaviour?


If it is the latter, are you making a call to super.keyChar after your custom processing?
