Text field bug when typing more text that fits

I have the following xml code for my custom control:


<panel childLayout=“horizontal” align=“left” width=“100%”


<control id=“chat-text-input” name=“textfield” width=“85%”

height=“25px” />

<control id=“chat-text-button” name=“button” label=“send”

width=“15%” height=“25px”>

<interact onClick=“sendText()” />




The bug is that, when I start entering text in the chat-text-input all starts out working just fine. But when I get to the end of the textfield, the text doesn’t scroll. The cursor just proceeds to go to the left, out of the bounds of the textfield.

Just tried that with JME3 finally and could reproduce the issue as well as track it down to a missing method in the jme Nifty RenderFont together with Momoko_Fan who will fix it!

Thanks for bugging me with this Ractoc :wink: I really should have checked this earlier with the JME renderer …


Fixed in SVN


That’s good news, I’ll try that later today. Thanx for the quick fix guys.

Sweet, I had noticed this a while back: http://hub.jmonkeyengine.org/groups/gui/forum/topic/trouble-with-nifty-textfield-in-jmonkey-program/

Glad its fixed now, I will try it sometime when I download another nightly build and upload it to my maven repo.
