FocusInput and SecureLogin 8.5


After an upgrade from 8.1 to 8.5, FocusInput is not longer accepts.

When I open a web page, I got an error message:

Non SecureLogin Error(3)
Error executing Application Definition line 19.

In line 19:
FocusInput #1:2

When I comment or remove all lines with FocusInput, it successful.

It's a bug in 8.5?

Re: FocusInput and SecureLogin 8.5

hi jacob,

not nice if things break after an upgrade, of course, but i'd be
interested in why you need focusinput in the first place? i have made a
few application definitions (around 100) but never came across the need
to use that command ..

Re: FocusInput and SecureLogin 8.5

The wizard does use FocusInput before other input options like TextInput and BooleanInput, this is helpful for some websites but not required by all.

Previously FocusInput would fail silently as it always reported success, which was causing some issues for debugging when attempting to focus and nothing was happening.

The response of 3 is indicating that the targeted field could not be found in the list that where identified with MatchField.
So from the example within the related site block was there a
MatchField #1:2

Also, where a field is matched using -optional then when the field is not found it is reporting success rather than 3 field not found.
