Description Tim Dawson 2012-01-02 10:19:40 UTC
It is not currently possible to set this property, which is required to avoid undesirable default Apple behaviour of the keyboard not going away in modal dialogs. Setting it to false causes the exception below.

This is a binding error, the setter doesn't actually exist in native code.

You're supposed to override the getter and return false there.

Fixed for the next unstable release.
