RAD 10.4 Android KeyboardType NumbersAndPunctuation not working

Recommended Posts

It seems keyboardType.NumbersAndPunctuation defaults to DecimalNumberPad with Android (compiled in 10.4).

 

Does anyone have the same experience or am I overlooking something?

The FMX Java code has:

    NUMBER_AND_PUNCTUATION(InputType.TYPE_CLASS_NUMBER | InputType.TYPE_NUMBER_FLAG_SIGNED | InputType.TYPE_NUMBER_FLAG_DECIMAL),

    NUMBER_DECIMAL(InputType.TYPE_CLASS_NUMBER | InputType.TYPE_NUMBER_FLAG_DECIMAL | InputType.TYPE_NUMBER_FLAG_SIGNED);

So they are the same (just or'd in a different order). I doubt whether there's an exact equivalent to iOS, on Android.

Yes I was also missing that too, and even would like to customize the keyboard.

Seems that this ends up in a lot of fumble jumble.

Not even checked for the iOS side.

 

I hope that Embarcadero will work their fingers to the bone one day :classic_blush:

Thank you. They used to be different.

I seem to have more issues with the keyboard type. Now with iOS. iOS only seems to work properly if I use the default Keyboard type.

Sorry for responding to an old post, but I wonder if the issue I notice is related.

Put on a form 3 TEdits

Give them different Keyboardtypes.

tap in an Tedit, the correct keyboard is shown.

Don't use the returnkey, but tap in the next Tedit.

On Android, this works okay, the correct keyboardlayout is shown.

On iOS, the keyboardtype from the first edit remains visible.

 

Is this an iOS issue or a Firemonkey issue?

Thanks,

John
