Visual Studio 2010
MFA 4.2 RC4
Steps to reproduce:
Add a button to a layout.
Double click the button to edit the text.
Click into the text box to focus the text box.
Press tab to open the resource-editing text box.
Press enter to apply the changes.
Button displays the resource name (@string/button) (bug 4987)
Text boxes clear
Button displays the resource name (@string/button)
Text boxes do not clear
Even if I delete the widget, the text boxes remain.
Reload the .axml file
This issue does not occur if I press escape instead of enter.
This issue does not occur if I click away from the button instead of pressing enter.
Setting severity to critical because this will be a common user action day one, and the most intuitive way of accepting changes is pressing Enter. Additionally, without restarting you will encounter a number of other issues (most noticeably, you cannot double click on other buttons to edit the text). This means you must restart VS every time this issue occurs.
I can't reproduce. No matter what I do the edit boxes go away when I click anywhere in the designer. I'd need a sample project for this.
Although I can't reproduce, I committed a change that may fix the problem (dc3c9d4a7a0466c84373eee2e6537404ce4adb6c). Can you please verify?
The behavior only manifests when pressing Enter after editing the string resource (not clicking or pressing esc)
Verified fixed in MFA 4.2.0 RC5
