TMSFMXNativeUISearchBar text input disabled


on the TMSFMXNativeUISearchBar text input is disabled.

When setting TMSFMXNativeUISearchBar1.text := 'abc' in code the cancel-button works but editing text is still not working.

TMSFMXNativeUISearchBar1.SearchBar.isUserInteractionEnabled is true.

Thanks in advance,


It's unclear what you mean with text input is disabled? Did you disable this programmatically or is it disabled by default?

it just doesn't accept any input.

I didn't disabe anything ...


In the latest version, using UISearchBar as a standalone component is deprecated. In iOS 10 a new type of search controller needs to be used in combination with navigation controller, or tableview controller. We'll investigate which changes are needed.

I wanted to search on database-level and then insert the resulting records into a TableView.

If this is possible with the integrated searchbar of a tableview that would be fine with me...

For the time being, please use a default input control such as the TTMSFMXNativeUITextView or TTMSFMXNativeUITextField. The search bar integrated in the tableview is used for filtering
