Forget about default textbox restrictions, you can create sprites atop of the textbox

  • Thanks, should be fixed in the next build.

  • Thank you Ashley. However, it is still happening for me (r164.2). Can you confirm that you solved it ?


  • Ashley This bug still seems apparent in r176 using Crosswalk, latest XDK. Also cannot tap on anything else whilst textbox is focused as it just brings up the keyboard...

  • You're right, looks like it was still an issue. I've tried again to fix it for the next build, hopefully r177 will resolve it.
