New text fields are turned on!

Adele Peterson
Hi all,

I just flipped the switch to turn our new NSView-less implementation on!

I've added the Bugzilla keyword "NativeTextField" to all bugs related  
to the switch.  So you can query for bugs with that keyword to see a  
full list.  If you run into problems, please add that keyword to any  
bugs you file.

Looking forward to all the juicy bugs you all find!

Thanks,
        Adele

I wonder if this means Darin's patches in http://
bugzilla.opendarwin.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5195 (and a few others that  
didn't make it in bugzilla) would work now?

Well, we're still working on converting <input type="password"> and  
other form controls, so when those are all done, bug #5195 may be  
unblocked.

I suspect this will still be a no-go because of WebKit plug-ins,  
which are NSView-based. But because we no longer use NSView for text  
fields, it will make it harder to test!

Please read this message as it was intended -- an honest question,  
not an attempt to insult anyone. That said:

What kind of state is this considered to be in? Is it intended to be  
in a stable enough state that it's worth reporting bugs against, or  
is this just life at the top of the tree while developers are still  
testing and fixing their own work?

Just for instance: Double clicking words doesn't work properly in  
most cases, copy-paste inserts extra spaces, spell checking doesn't  
work... I'll file these if desired, but if the code is still being  
written it's a bit pointless to do so. (Although it doesn't crash.  
That's good!)

Sorry if this has been discussed, but I haven't seen anything on it.

No matter what state text-fields are in you are encouraged to file bugs about behavior change and other problems that need addressed.

Just for instance: Double clicking words doesn't work properly in most cases, copy-paste inserts extra spaces, spell checking doesn't work... I'll file these if desired, but if the code is still being written it's a bit pointless to do so. (Although it doesn't crash. That's good!)

Again it is never pointless to file a bug. You can look over all the bugs filed about the new text-fields here:


Double clicking is filed in bug 8063. Please file bugs about copy-paste and spell checking.
