The S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 1 Emulator closes a TextField MIDlet with the "Application closed: lcdui CTextLayout usin <N>" notification after deleting characters from the TextField component and then pressing backspace.

How to reproduce

Implement a test MIDlet using, for example, the following code:

TextField inputField = new TextField("", "", 30, TextField.ANY); 
Form form;
form = new Form("Test");

Launch the MIDlet using the S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 1 emulator.

After launch, press backspace (or the 'C' key on the emulator). The MIDlet exits with the "Application closed: <MIDlet name> CTextLayout usin <N>" notification.

The example code above appears without any characters on the TextField component, the proving that the MIDlet exits right after the final/extra backspace press.


This issue has been fixed starting from S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2.

Note that this issue affects only the emulator, not the actual devices.
