TextInput with persistent focus

  • Hello,

    I have following qml file:

    import QtQuick 2.7
    import QtQuick.Controls 2.0
    import QtQuick.Controls.Styles 1.4
    Rectangle {
    	id: applicationWindow1
    	visible: true
    	width: 640
    	height: 480
    		 id: textInput1
    		 width: 193
    		 height: 130
    		 anchors.horizontalCenter: parent.horizontalCenter
    		 anchors.verticalCenter: parent.verticalCenter
    		 anchors.left: parent.left
    		 anchors.leftMargin: 193
    		 anchors.topMargin: 130
    		 focus: true
    		 text: qsTr("Text Input")
    		 font.pixelSize: 12
    		id: button1
    		y: 403
    		text: qsTr("Backspace")
    		anchors.bottom: parent.bottom
    		anchors.bottomMargin: 37
    		anchors.left: parent.left
    		anchors.leftMargin: 257
    			textInput1.remove(textInput1.text.length-1, textInput1.text.length)

    I would like to keep keyboard focus inside the TextInput even if the "Backspace" button was pressed. Do you have any idea/hints how to achieve this?

  • You can set the desired focusPolicy. For example:

    Button { focusPolicy: Qt.NoFocus } // no focus at all
    Button { focusPolicy: Qt.TabFocus } // allow tab focus, but not click focus

  • Hello jpnurmi :-),

    Thank you for the reply,

    I think, that this is something what I was looking for.
    Thank you :)
