  • Problem Description

    Text from textbox.text is object is copied/displayed backwards to text.text object.

    I only experience this problem on my mobile phone (Galaxy S7 Edge, with Chrome and also Samsung Internet browser). PC's have not exhibited problem with backwards text .

    Attach a Capx

    (Capx shared on onedrive)


    (URL with app)


    Description of Capx

    Toggle between displaying text from one text box or another.

    The only difference is the size of the two text boxes.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

      On a mobile device (but oddly not my PCs):
    • Type something "normally" with the keyboard (textbox 1 starts in focus). Everything seems fine.
    • click the number icon to switch focus to text box 2 (which is very small)
    • when you type is the very small textbox the text is copied backwards

    Observed Result

    The text gets displayed backwards if the text box is too small

    Expected Result

    The test should be in the order it is entered on the keyboard

    Affected Browsers

      (Mobile problem only)
    • Chrome: (YES/NO)
    • Samsung Internet (only ones I have)

    Operating System and Service Pack


    Construct 2 Version ID


    Thank you for your help. I am not, by any means, a programmer. I am a teacher who is writing educational software and Construct 2 gives me abilities I never thought possible. Thank you!!!

  • Try Construct 3

  • Can't reproduce on a HTC 10 with Android 8. Issues which only happen on specific devices/platforms usually indicate a problem with that device/platform, not with Construct (since the fact it works in other places generally indicates our code is correct). Additionally having a tiny text box seems like a weird thing to do that real-world apps shouldn't need, so it doesn't seem especially important to fix or work around it. Closing.
