I’m building a QT application for Symbian, and one major problem i’m having is with QTextEdit, when i run it on my development device (a Nokia 5800 with v51 firmware and Portuguese language) it doesn’t seem to accept input (none of the keys causes any output) from the full qwerty virtual keyboard or the mini qwerty keyboard, the only input accepted is from the T9 virtual keyboard.
I kept all the default widget attributes, but i found there is a “inputMethodHints” attribute, do i need to change this attribute for the qwerty keyboard to work?
Also strange is that QLineEdit seems to work with the referred input methods, but in this case the backspace key doesn’t delete the previous character.
P.S. I’m running on QT 4.7 but the same problem occurs with 4.6.
I also tried an example app for QT Symbian (FriendFeed) and it has the same problem with a QTextEdit.
This is very bad because my app needs a widget for multi-line text input.
Is this something related to my phone? Does anyone else have this problem?
Thank you for your time.
