What software exactly are you typing this into? Potlatch? JOSM?

  • Component changed from admin to potlatch2
  • Owner changed from tom@… to potlatch-dev@…

I assume, given you raised #4031 at the same time, that this is about Potlatch 2.

Adobe have changed a lot of the TextInput? architecture in Flex 4.5 and unfortunately it no longer works reliably with our AutoComplete? component. I've spent a while trying to fix it but it looks non-trivial. Essentially the problem is that line 212 here ( isn't setting the insertion point location as it ought to (and used to).

We could consider moving to another AutoComplete? component:,, .

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Actually - fixed in by the time-honoured practice of: if it's not doing what it should, use the magic Flex incantation someUIComponent.validateNow(), which might as well be renamed someUIComponent.workGoddamit().
