Greetings, folks -
Well, I am dragging myself, kicking and screaming, into the “modern era” with 2019R3. Previous version I had used was maybe 2017R??. I’ve been used to, over the years, of using KeyUp events in TextFields, to screen and limit entries into TextFields. You could do this by managing the return value from the event handlers, which would then block or process that key entry into the field’s text.
The new TextFields no longer have that behavior. The KeyUp event no longer returns anything. So, what is the expected method to manage the key entries? I tried the mask property, and that was a total bust. For example, I have a field that is pre-filled with the year from a DateTime object and I use a mask of “####”. When I do that, the field’s text is not editable, it does not even allow a character to be deleted or a character to be selected and typed over.
Right now, I am sidestepping that with a popup menu but that is less than desirable when you need to select one of 31 entries (day of the month) or one of 60 entries (minutes).
Suggestions, strategies, etc, are gratefully accepted.
