Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34181) No Prompt in TextInput when layoutDirection set to RTL (Mobile)
Date Sun, 30 Mar 2014 11:10:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34181?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13954641#comment-13954641
] 

Maurice Amsellem commented on FLEX-34181:
-----------------------------------------

This is because TextInput mobile skin uses StyleableTextField which cannot be used with RTL
alphabets (eg. Hebrew and Arabic).
The workaround is to create a custom skin that overrides createPromptDisplay to use spark
Label instead (attached sample file).
spark Label is less performant on mobile that StyleableTextField, but this shouldn't be an
issue if there are not too many prompt text to display.
