Form fields in a deck lose focus too quickly.


If a Form Field is in a deck it (particularly Text/Textarea) loses focus if user stops writing for 0.5~ (too quick) seconds, hopefully it wouldn't lose focus at all.

Custom input fields lose focus after one letter.

Reason: once field determined that user has stoped entering data it will call (I assume) onInput which would update the data in the model. Afterwards, (I assume) deck listens for changes in the model and re-renders all of the child components and maybe itself.

Potential workaround, but if anything else causes the model to update then all changes will be reverted (as component is re-rendered), and I'm not able to anticipate all changes. Next level would be to call this after deck has re-rendered, but unsure which function call to override. Another assumption: onInput/onBlur doesn't do anything different from the template generated by CustomFieldRenderer.

skuid.runtime.getPage('Temp_Page_5_v2').component.getByType()[<componentType>].forEach((c) => {
  if(c._cpi.onInput ){
  c._cpi.onBlur = c._cpi.onInput.bind({})
  c._cpi.onInput = undefined}});

Skuid v2, version 13.0.12.

  • Hi Lukas,

    I discovered this issue recently as well. Based on the feedback I got from Skuid, it sounds like they are aware of the issue and have logged it as a bug. Until they get it fixed, I'm all ears if you find a workaround!

  • Hi Elena,

    Thank you for letting me know.

    Unfortunately, I do not, but if you stumble upon one then please let me know! :D
