Default EditField not taking character input

Please Login to Remove!

This is about as basic as it gets...

EditField edit = new EditField("Notes: ", "");
add(edit);

Any ideas why I am having issues actually typing into this edit field on the sim. Other examples I have used work...I added this to my hello world app and the field will not take user input. Option controls, etc work fine.

wtf?

Thanks.

Do you have an override of keyChar() in your screen class? If so, you may be inadvertantly eating the characters.

Always call super.keyChar() for the keystrokes that you do not handle.

Default Thank you!

Took out the:

Code:
    public boolean keyChar(char key, int status, int time) {
        //intercept the ESC key - exit the app on its receipt
        boolean retval = false;

        switch (key) {
        case Characters.ESCAPE:
            onClose();
            retval = true;
            break;
        }
        
        return retval;
    }
And EditFields are as easy to use as they should be.
