Description Kevin Mullins 2016-01-29 19:33:29 UTC
In the iOS Designer for tvOS, if you drag a new UIButton onto the design surface and try to edit the title, the keystrokes aren't accepted and you cannot change the title. The title is highlighted in the Properties field, but keystrokes don't register.

If you unselect and reselect the button, you can edit the title.
Comment 1 Kevin Mullins 2016-01-29 19:34:45 UTC
This is happening for any new control, not just buttons.
Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2016-02-01 11:40:35 UTC
Can you show a screencast of the problem?
Comment 3 Kevin Mullins 2016-02-01 15:37:22 UTC

Here is a video: https://youtu.be/8umrtqAwRQA

The first time I select the new buttons name, even though I'm typing trying to change the name, nothing happens. If I unselect and reselect the button THEN I can change the name.

That screencast was perfect! I has tried exactly that but it worked fine for me.

Are you on Yosemite or El Capitan? And does this happen with the latest monodevelop/master builds? Can you also include Xamarin Studio and Mono version information?

This looks suspiciously like a bug we've been trying to figure out which randomly breaks the search field in the top right of xamarin studio, but this is slightly different in that you can recover from the breakage. I can't trigger it yet :(

I have an alternative way of triggering the same problem:
1 Resize your Xamarin Studio until you can see the desktop and XS.
2) Click on the desktop to make XS lose focus
3) Click on the 'Search' box in the top right of XS. You'll see XS gets focus and the cursor is placed in the search box.

4) Click on the desktop again
5) Now click on any editor in the property panel

XS gets focus but the cursor is *not* placed inside the control you clicked on.

I think this is another GtkNSView issue so I'm CC'ing Cody in. If the issue i reproed is *not* the same as what you've described do let me know.
