This seems to be an iOS issue, but I was hoping someone may have found a work around for it…
I tested this using Apples Notes program, so I know its not strictly a Xojo issue.
Seems if you enter a large amount (a hundred chars or more) and then hold down the Backspace/Delete button… .it begins to delete your text, and then all of a sudden it erases ALL of it. If you patiently tap the Backspace key, it works well…
So is this a “feature”? a bug in iOS? anyone know of a workaround?
FYI… I spent the last hour searching the 'Net and can’t even find a reference to the fact that key even auto-repeats let alone this issue, and as I said, you can duplicate it in Apples own Notes app.
Well I found out WHAT is happening… but not how to “stop” it
turns out it is a “feature”… but one that screws up my app…
I need to intercept each character as it is deleted… but after 4 seconds… it starts deleting “words”
