Android field widget

J. Landman Gay via use-livecode
I'm very interested in the Android field widget but my initial attempt
isn't working very well. Is there anything special I need to do? What I
am seeing is:

Text content saved in the widget with the stack doesn't display on a
mobile device; is this not a persistent property? Do we need to script
all the properties dynamically?

Tapping the field to enter text crashes the app.

I'm opening the test stack via a generic launcher apk I use for testing,
is that the problem? The generic launcher has the widget included.
Except for the text, the field widget is using its default properties
and is editable.

Hi Jacque,

Unfortunately we tried to get the android native field widget into DP 8 at
the very last minute, but discovered that it crashes when it becomes
focused. We will of course try to fix this issue as soon as possible.

So I would suggest you wait until 9.0 DP-9 before you use the android
native field widget.

Best,
Panos

Rather annoyingly a last-minute change I made caused the widget to
a) error on startup thereby causing its properties to fail, and
b) crash when tapping the field to enter text

There was some blurb about this in the release email. If you are keen to
give it a try, these issues are fixed in the develop branch, so you could
download the source here:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode/tree/develop/extensions/widgets/androidfield
 ,
give it a different identifier and install it via the extension builder.

Thanks Ali and Panos. I missed the blurb, even though I do read release
notes. I'm glad you're ahead of me on this and I'll look forward to the
next release. It's very exciting stuff and I'm happy to see Android
getting attention.
