Description Ian 2012-05-09 13:18:41 UTC
It is not possible to more then edit cursor in an EntryElement and edit the text.

I have documented it here with photos:

It appears this is the fix. Edit the Value in the EntryElement:

public string Value
        return this.val;
        this.val = value;
        if (this.entry != null && value != null && !value.Equals (this.entry.Text))
            this.entry.Text = value;

This is caused by:


which also breaks the password entry - bug #4736
