I have a sub-window which contains a textfield. when i open the sub-window i need the focus to be in the textfield and all the text should be seleced.
i use the textfield.focus() and textfield.selectAll() method to achieve this.
But in the UI i don't the textfield focued or all text selected.
i have focus and blur listeners added to the textfield where i just do a SOP. and i could see the SOPs.
am i missing out something?
Could you give some sample code on how you are setting the focus to the sub-window TextField on opening the window?
I tested setting the focus and selecting all in field both with:
both ways focused the text field and selected all the text in the sub-window so I could just start typing in new text over the old one.
