  • Text shifting in TextBox Object

    Hi,
    I'm using AMS 3.0.0.7 and have a TextBox Object which LoadsText from
    %SrcDrv\readme.txt

    The properties of the box has a Vertical Scrollbar and a border.

    On the same page, I have a couple of other objects (text, bullets etc.). Some of these bullets are hidden until the MouseOver is seen on its corresponding text (i.e a Menu item)

    I am noticing that if the user scrolls down the text box by using the Vertical scrollbar, and then 'moves' the mouse cursor across one of the other objects, the text which is currently being shown in the TextBox suddenly jumps back up to the beginning.

    I have also tried clicking in the Text box to give it some focus but the error still occurs.
    Any ideas?

    Regards
    Chris

    Hi,

    This bug will sometimes appear if the cursor is located within the border of the Text Box when the page first opens, and only if the cursor does not leave the Text Box before the user starts to scroll.

    This being true, the Text Box should only just back to the top once.

    Is this the error you are receiving or are you getting different results?

      Thanks Mark.
      Ive managed to sort it but not totally convinced of the resolution!!

      It appears to have been either:
      a) the positioning of the TextObject
      (If I made the height of it slightly smaller, or adjusted (by decreasing)the Top value, the problem dissappeared)

      and/or

      b) There was a Label object just above the TextBox which appeared to have been touching. By moving the label up a bit, again, the problem dissappeared.

      Odd I know, but it worked for me
