Description Gonzalo Paniagua Javier 2011-08-26 14:00:32 UTC
If you enter an activation code, say 12345-67890-12345-67890-12345 and then press backspace, it will stop when you delete the last 5 digit (12345-67890-12345-67890-) and can't keep deleting until you move the cursor to the previous number.

Expected behaviour: backspace jumps over the '-'

Fixed in the ios5 and master branches.
Comment 2 Jeffrey Stedfast 2011-10-10 13:06:12 UTC
Rolf: is it worth backporting this fix to the 4.2 branch?
Comment 3 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2011-10-10 16:03:42 UTC
IMHO it's just a minor annoyance, no reason to bother backporting it.
Comment 4 Jeffrey Stedfast 2011-10-10 16:10:41 UTC
ok, so we can close this then?
Comment 5 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2011-10-10 16:17:13 UTC
Oh, of course, I must have forgotten to close it when I fixed it.
