    I figured this has been covered so I looked really hard but cannot find the answer.

    I want to allow the user to move the cursor in the textfield, then by selection, insert text into this textfield. Changing the textfield works but I need to find out where the cursor is located. How do I do this?

    The next problem is, I can't seem to move the cursor after the insert is done.

    If the focus is taken off the textfield, using the mojo.focus() puts the cursor at the end of the text if the focusMode set to "Mojo.Widget.focusAppendMode". However, if the focus remains on the textfield when the text is changed, the text gets added but the cursor remains in the same spot.

    I know there's a trick here but I can't figure it out. Help?

    Is not a user allowed to move the cursor by pressing Orng or Shift key and using the gesture area to move it left and right?

    The user can move the cursor but the app needs to know where the cursor is located so that the text can be inserted in the correct place. After the insertion, the cursor has to be moved to after the inserted text.

    So far, I cannot find any API to do this. In case you're wondering, I've tried the normal JSJSJS $code$:

    Code:
    var txtarea = document.getElementById("message");
    var strPos = txtarea.selectionStart;
    But this does not work because the textfields are not normal HTML forms.

    Help!

    The framework CSS suggests that there somewhere *is* an input element, so perhaps you could try to access that one directly by using getElementsByTagName?

    Code:
    var inputs = this.controller.get("message").getElementsByTagName("input");
    if (inputs && inputs.length > 0) {
       this.textInputElement = inputs[0];
    }
    Dunno if this works though...
