TextInputDialog not working in HTML

I am using a TextInputDialog, and it works in the Android and Windows Players, but not in HTML (tested Chrome, Firefox) on two machines. Code is below. The HTML app runs here: https://www.perrochon.com/BushidoBattle/

Instructions to reproduce: Click on [HERO] then click on the name of one of the heroes

The dialog pops up, but cannot be edited. (except from one backspace)

Also (depending on your window dimenstons) if you click e.g. on the right most hero, the text dialog pops up in the middle over the second hero. If you click "cancel" the click goes to the name sprite of the hero below.
	heroName = TextButton.new(hero.name)
	-- set Pos, etc.
	heroName:addEventListener("click", function ()
		local textInputDialog = TextInputDialog.new("Change Hero Name", "Enter Hero Name", 
			hero.name, "Cancel", "Save")
		textInputDialog:addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, function(event)
			if event.buttonIndex ~= nil then
				hero.name = event.text:sub(1,8)
				hero:save()
				sceneManager:changeScene(SCENE_CHOOSE_HERO, 0, TRANSITION) 				
			end
		end)
		textInputDialog:show()
	end)

    Yes, looks like something has changed in the event processing for html. Maybe something need to be fixed in the .css or in the js code. I will have a look. However try to avoid TextInputDialog, it will feel more natural if you can keep your graphical theme. I have a TextEditor component that I can share, I will do.

    Awesome. I hate the way the system TextInputDialog looks

    Here it is.

    It basically works like a TextField (same constructor).

    Typical use:
    local editor=TextEdit.new(TTFont.new("gfx/OpenSans-Bold.ttf",20,""),"Edit this",{w=100,flags=FontBase.TLF_REF_LINETOP|FontBase.TLF_NOWRAP})
    stage:addChild(editor)
    editor:setPosition(10,10)
     
    editor:startEditing()
     
    --editor:stopEditing()
    lua
    lua
    textedit.lua

    Ah, I thought that it can handle tabs :) There is my comment:

    Also, in order to use ur class on mobiles you'll need to show a keyboard. So this: application:setKeyboardVisibility(true) will show me the keyboard, but how do I get its input?
  • hgy29hgy29 Maintainer
    yes, on mobile you need to call setKeyboardVisibility(true) at the same time you call startEditing(), then input can be received from Event.KEY_CHAR,Event.KEY_DOWN and Event.KEY_UP. Actually this class of mine is part of my larger UI project, with a few changes to be used without the other files.
    About the tab, yes it is supposed to be supported, but I didn't check your issue yet.

    Thanks @hgy29. I included your code. A few follow up questions

    1. I have application:setOrientation(Application.LANDSCAPE_LEFT) and I do application:setKeyboardVisibility(true). However the keyboard on the Android Player (didn't deploy an app) comes up in portrait mode

    2. I also want to limit text length. Is a modification like this UTF8 safe? The number 11
    is something that would go in with the constructor as optional
    function TextEdit:addChars(c)
    	local np
    	if self.password then
    		self:hideLast()
    		local t=self:_getText()
    		t,np=addCharsUtf8(t,self.caretPos+1,c)
    		self.lastVisible={s=self.caretPos+1,e=np,t=os:timer()+HIDE_TIMER}
    		self:_setText(t)
    		local p=skipCharsUtf8(self.text,self.caretPos//#self.password)
    		self.caretPos=np-1
    		self.text=addCharsUtf8(self.text,p,c)
    	else
    		local t=self:_getText()
    		if countCharsUtf8(t) < 11 then  --  SILENTLY IGNORE INPUT LONGER THAN 11
    			t,np=addCharsUtf8(t,self.caretPos+1,c)
    			self.caretPos=np-1
    			self:setText(t)
    		end
    	end
    	self:setCaretPos(self.caretPos)
    	self:textChanged()
    end
