Issue ID




GUI.TextArea and GUI.TextField are broken on UWP

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download attached project
2. Switch platform to UWP
3. Build project (Scene: 'ResolutionScene')
4. Run On local Machine
5. Try to edit the text fields.

Results: notice there's no text cursor, backspace doesn't work and sometimes when selecting the different field, the text is copied from one field to another.

Reproduced with: 2020.1.0a4, 2019.3.0b3, 2019.2.4f1, 2019.1.14f1
Not reproducible with: 2018.4.9f1, 2017.4.32f1

Note: Older versions then 2019.1.0a12 could not be checked due to Build fails in VS.

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2020.1):

    This issue was introduced because of significant changes to UWP's TouchScreenKeyboard and text entry implementation. This was done to address various issues with text input on Surface and also add support for IME. This work required some changes to uGUI's InputField and also TextMeshPro to support the new keyboard interface, but unfortunately IMGUI was overlooked.

    This has now been addressed so TextArea in IMGUI should work corectly.
