Error description

  • ENVIRONMENT:
    Hats 8.0.0.2
    
    5250 session
    OS: Win XP
    RAD V8.0.4
    WAS V8.0
    Google Chrome V19.0.1084.52
    
    User reported to be on the above environment. User is aware that
    per documentation HATS supports Google's Chrome browser. On this
    environment user noted that the behaviour of exceeded characters
    on an Open/ Mix field differs from other HATS supported
    browsers. When the user inputs exceeded characters on a 5250
    Open field, HATS does not trim the characters after IME
    committing. If it is 5250 J field ( ei, DBCS only field), the
    problem does not occur.
    User tested HATS field widget and text input widget and in this
    case the problem does occur.  User expects field length checking
    using Chrome browser to work the same as the Firefox and IE
    browsers.
    
    
    Example / recreate:
    
    On Chrome:
    Field Type: 5250 Open Field
    Filed length: 20 Bytes
    This means only 9 DBCS characters are allowed.
    (9*2 + 2(for SO/SI) = 20)
    
    Initial data: "
    Input data using IME: "             "
    
    Commit the IME, but exceeded characters still remains
    
    Press the "Tab" key to move the cursor to the next field; the
    cursor does not move. Instead, it focuses the field. At the same
    time, exceeded characters are trimmed.
    
    Press the "Tab" key again, but the cursor still remains in the
    same field.
    
    Press the "Tab" key again, and this time, the cursor moves to
    the next field.
    
    
    On Firefox:
    Field Type: 5250 Open Field
    Filed length: 20 Bytes
    This means only 9 DBCS characters are allowed.
    (9*2 + 2(for SO/SI) = 20)
    
    Initial data: "        "
    Input data using IME: "        "
    
    Press the "Tab" key, and the cursor moves to the next field.

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    User presses enter key to submit characters from IME, but
    Chrome does not pass the enter key code from the key event,
    so field length checking process was not triggered.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Chrome will trigger textinput event when submit characters
    from IME, use this event with IME state to check and run the
    field length checking process for Chrome.
