    Is TEdit bugged with mobile? Since when?

    Nice! That's exactly the issue. So when user enter the edit I change to Platform, he lefts I change back to Platform, as a workaround.

    Normally other apps would use different frameworks from FMX. This very app I am creating, as I already told, will work when changing the ControlStyle to Platform, but if I do it one of the issues is related to z control, like bellow:

    Not working, you got trapped into the visible text. Want to change a word/letter beyond the visible part? Delete back some characters...

    Well I agree but in this case it will work fine when changing the Style to Platform, so this can be a very specific issue with FMX.

    Is TEdit bugged with mobile? Since when?

    I don't know about lack of buttons, but I meant about the inability to move the cursor/caret allowing the user to edit any text he already typed in. You can only fix the text you "see" in the control at that time. Suppose the user need to type "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit": Lorem ipsum |dolor sit amet, consectetur adip|iscing elit The green text between the two pipes | represents the width of the TEdit. So if the cursor is over the letter r and the user needs to fix a test beyond this space it's impossible, unless he deletes the text using backspace, the gray text is out of range because there is no visible cursor to allow moving to that text.
  6. I am using Delphi 10.4.2 CE, also downloaded the trial version of Alexandria and the results are the same: 1. Put a TEdit into the form, aligned or not, target to mobile 2. Type in some words until you cross the visible borders, so the text will scroll... 3. Try returning to the beginning of the text! If you can do it without get blocked into the visible part of the control, please let me know how to! I can't move the cursor beyond the visual limits. If you change to Platform mode it will work as it should, but you will lose the Z level for the controls.

    Trying to share a text file

    And I finished. My app is now able to both send the text file I intend and also receive a text from sharing ­čÖé Thanks to Brain Long again as I found the new updated article: http://blog.blong.com/2016/09/android-callbacks-wrapped-by-firemonkey.html

    Trying to share a text file

    Well, I quit trying to doing it myself and now I am using Kastri lib (https://github.com/DelphiWorlds/Kastri) I works like a charm!! The second part is about receiving a text from another app, like a selected text. I already can do it, but just if I close my app and so the event will be triggered. Once I change to other app, select text and share, it won't work. I was guessing if OnActive should solve that but no, it's never triggered again, same onShow, only onPaint but that's crazy. Is there another way once my Android application returns focus to me check the intent? I tried implement the Brain Long solution (http://blong.com/Articles/DelphiXE7NFC/NFC.htm#ReceivingIntents) but I was unable to.. ­čś×

    Trying to share a text file

    Well, reading an answer at Stackoverflow (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/56952411/sharing-image-and-link-through-intent-for-whatsapp-telegram-etc) is said: So, as I thought, now if I really need to send to Telegram I must figure out how to correctly input the information there. At least the sharing file is working.

    Trying to share a text file

    I just tried Intent.setType(´╗┐StringToJString('image/* text/plain´╗┐')), well the result is the same. At very first I tried Intent.setType(´╗┐StringToJString('text/plain´╗┐')) and it will be used because the type file is ascii text. Maybe Telegram can have another way to receive a text file, which is different from Whatsapp.

    Trying to share a text file

    It will open the share sheet so I could choose what app to share with. Now, if I select WhatsApp it works, if I select Telegram I receive the "unsupported content" message. For some reason Telegram wont accept the same parameters used for WhatsApp. Testing with Signal won't even return an error, it at least let me select a contact. I think the something is still missing here. So far I could not find any answer. The reason I am specifying that target intent for WhatsApp is because not all app could receive a sharing, and for email it is a kind different.

    Trying to share a text file

    Ok, I finally did something, at least. Now I can share files with WhatsApp, but it will fail to Telegram or other apps that could receive a file: procedure TForm1.ShareFile(const FileName: String); Var {$IFDEF ANDROID} Intent: JIntent; FileUri: Jnet_Uri; ListArqs: JArrayList; {$ENDIF} begin {$IFDEF ANDROID} ListArqs := TJArrayList.Create; FileUri := TJNet_Uri.JavaClass.fromFile(TJFile.JavaClass.init(StringToJString(FileName))); ListArqs.Add(0, FileUri); // if intend to send more file change the index (default 0) try Intent := TJIntent.JavaClass.init(TJIntent.JavaClass.ACTION_SEND); Intent.setType(StringToJString('image/text/plain')); Intent.putParcelableArrayListExtra(TJIntent.JavaClass.EXTRA_STREAM, ListArqs); Intent.setPackage(StringToJString('com.whatsapp')); // Intent.setPackage(StringToJString('org.telegram.messenger')); Intent.addFlags(TJIntent.JavaClass.FLAG_GRANT_READ_URI_PERMISSION); SharedActivity.startActivity(TJIntent.JavaClass.createChooser(Intent, StrToJCharSequence(''))); except on E: Exception do ShowMessage(E.Message); end; {$ENDIF} end;

    Trying to share a text file

    Edit: I still didn't find any solution, but the code bellow seems to be "more" correct, I replicate from similar in Java but the message now is like "invalid format", as I am trying to share a text file to WhatsApp, eg. Bellow the new code: if FileExists(FileName) then begin Intent := TJIntent.Create; Intent.setAction(TJIntent.JavaClass.ACTION_SEND); Intent.setType(StringToJString('*/*')); Intent.putExtra(TJIntent.JavaClass.EXTRA_STREAM, StringToJString('content://'+FileName)); SharedActivity.startActivity(TJIntent.JavaClass.createChooser(Intent, StrToJCharSequence('Share with...'))); end;
  14. I read almost every topic of the internet about this, but no clue and actually I have 2 issues... My Android app, Delphi CE, needs to save a file into the shared folder and it works fine (using TPath.GetSharedDocumentsPath), but I need to eventually share it and here I have the issues, first my app can't touch that file for sharing, but I can read and write it perfectly. The error is that known " android.os.FileUriExposedException´╗┐: file:///storage/emulated/0/Documents/myfile.txt exposed beyond app through ClipData.Item.getUri()". Ok, so I thought that my app can read the file I could clone a copy into the "sandbox" (TPath.GetDocumentsPath) and try to share and this is my second issue, because it seems to save the copy there but when I try to check the folder in phone the path .../files is empty. My Android is running the version 11 and SDK 26. The sharing function I am using can be the issue, of course: procedure ShareFile(FileName: string); Intent: JIntent; fileuri: JParcelable; Uri, Data: Jnet_Uri; begin Intent := TJIntent.Create; Intent.setAction(TJIntent.JavaClass.ACTION_SEND); Intent.addFlags(TJIntent.JavaClass.FLAG_GRANT_READ_URI_PERMISSION); Data := TJnet_Uri.JavaClass.parse(StringToJString(FileName)); Intent.setType(StringToJString('vnd.android.cursor.dir/*')); fileuri := JParcelable(TJnet_Uri.JavaClass.fromFile(TJFile.JavaClass.init(StringToJString(FileName)))); Intent.putExtra(TJIntent.JavaClass.EXTRA_STREAM, fileuri); TAndroidHelper.Activity.startActivity(Intent); end; I am not even sure if the vnd is correct. If someone could help I would be very glad.
