Flex case file nu 261.. “The mysterious case of disapearing type”

June 11th, 2010 by Slav


This example is taken straight from Flex 4 Cookbook. It demonstrates how you can search inside of data grid.

Works fine, that not the problem.

The problem is , once you select any cell in data grid an return the the textfield.. you are unable to type anything! Tried different flex 4 sdks tried testing in IE, FF, Chrome .. no luck.

I had it happening in a different project, where I am working with much more complex data grid with custom item renderers and editors, so I chose Flex 4 cookbook example to test if it’s happening in a very simple scenario as well. Also that book was written by Flex experts, so I wanted to confirm it’s not me using the Flex  in the wrong way..

 EDIT: It seems it’s not happening on all computers? On my colleague’s machine this works fine it seems.Does anybody have the same problem as me ?

EDIT2: Solution found!This weird behaviour was down to the flash plugin/active X..

it wasn’t working correctly in version 10,1,50,426 .. but when I upgraded to 10,1,53,64  all works as expected! Must have been some glitch in the plugin.

anyway, I’ll leave this post here, in case somebody will have similar problem.

    allo captain,

    Yeah, the majority of other computers I’ve tested it on afterwards didn’t have that problem.. It’s a real mystery to me!

    I still need to know if this can affect more users and if anybody else experience this problem. (also need to be able debug/test this myself..

    * For one, when picking out coffee, this
    coffee brewer does its best work with finer grinds.
    Then you pull out in the driveway and wonder the whole day if you made the right decision
    or not. After you’ve decided what coffee machine you like to buy for your house or office the next thing you have to do is decide is where
    to buy, online or with your local shopping mall.

    Cirkus Columbia already has produced its way around the world
    festival by festival (Sydney to Venice to Toronto) and screened with a surprising quantity of others in the United
    States before its official opening in New York and
    Los Angeles. , it is possible to watch free videos around the XBOX LIVE Marketplace.
