Ticket #610 (closed defect: fixed)
Contacts has problems editing and storing name text
|Reported by:||vnevoa||Owned by:||ainulindale|
Opkg upgraded today, rebooted twice after that.
All my contacts are stored in SIM card.
I mount my home from the sdcard.
I removed ".e" and ".gpe" from the card before reflashing.
When editing a previously stored contact's name, it is not possible to store it if it has a space in the name. This fails silently.
Otherwise editing works well.
When creating a new contact, it also fails silently if the name has a space in it.
Otherwise storing a new one works well.
When editing the contact's name, there is awkwardness in the interaction of the keyboard with the text box.
1 - when opening the editing window, the text cursor is sitting on the left side instead of at the end of the name. When we press the "END" key on the keyboard, the cursor goes to (n-1), n being the last character of the name. We have to use the arrow keys to get the cursor to the end.
2 - with the cursor at the end of the name, if we type a space, the text box wraps the text to the next line, even if there is a lot of room for the second name.
This is a major defect for me, since it prevents storage of contact names with first and last name.
A workaround I devised is:
Go to Settings / Others / Domains / Contacts;
Make SIM-Contacts-FSO the default;
Disable all others;
Now it allows me to create new contacts with spaces in the name, but fails silently when editing just like before.
The frameworkd.log shows no errors at all when doing these actions.
