    Flash within Adobe AIR App: Textfields won't accept text input

    BBCLX Level 1

      Hy there

       

      We have a html-based Adobe AIR application, which in turn embeds a flash application from a server  (Written using ActionScript 2). We are using the < embed > tag for this.

       

      The flash application has several input fields. In the UI I can click buttons or open dropdowns, but whenever I would like to type text in an inputfield the text does not get into the actual field and it remains empty.

       

      The behaviour is as follows:

       

      • Click click afield with the mouse --> The cursor in the respective field starts blinking
      • Enter Text on the Keyboard --> Nothing happens (?)

       

      However, when I open the flash application in a browser everything works as expected and I am able to enter text into the fields.

       

      Has anybody experienced a similar situation? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
