Description User image Katsuhiko Momoi 1999-04-13 18:50:21 PDT
** Observed with 4/13/99 Win32 build **

When I tried to input Japanese into the mail header field using
Japanese IME on Windows, there is no connection between the IME
and the input field and nothing shows up there.

(We cannot input via copy/paste and this has to be also
 filed as a new bug.)

Naoki, please set the TM.
Comment 2 User image Katsuhiko Momoi 1999-04-13 18:55:59 PDT
See also Bug 5063 -- copy/paste does not work well for Japanese strings.
Comment 3 User image nhottanscp 1999-04-14 09:49:59 PDT
This is needed for M5 (to support MIME encode for Japanese).
Bob, who should I assgin this, xpfe?
Comment 4 User image nhottanscp 1999-04-14 10:34:59 PDT
This may related to dom, I added a comment in 5063.

Reassigning to Eric based upon Vidur's comment in bug 5063.
This is blocking the M5 deliverable for sending Japanese email.

This smells like a widget issue to me, and a platform-specific one at that.
Passing to Rod (looks like you did a large amount of the textarea widget work
for windows?).

CC'ing XP Widgets and Linux Widget folks, as this issue probably needs to be
addressed by them as well.

This is possibly a Windows toolkit bug. Currently, we are using the
MS-Windows standard text and textarea controls within the widget toolkit. I am
not sure why copy/paste of Japanese strings do not work, because that should all
be native windows clipboard stuff.

I can help take a look at this, but I am going to need some help. I don't have a
clue about IME or what is even potentially wrong here.
Comment 8 User image bobj 1999-04-21 18:24:59 PDT
The forms text widgets are planned to be Ender-based.  Is that correct?
I think we should focus on switching to Ender and not worry about the
intermediate native widget implementation.
Comment 9 User image bobj 1999-04-21 18:26:59 PDT
Updated Summary by prepending "[I18N/ENDER]" as was done for 5063.
Comment 10 User image leger 1999-04-28 16:45:59 PDT
Adding to QA Blocker radar.
Comment 11 User image rods (gone) 1999-04-28 20:55:59 PDT
I agree with bob, I don't think we should put a lot of effort into this since we
will be moving to Ender text widgets.
Comment 12 User image bobj 1999-04-29 09:40:59 PDT
Can we make the switch by M6?  Isn't this already working in viewer, so
what does it take to get it working in apprunner?  We need this because
the text widget for the mail headers are using forms -- one of the
remaining I18N mail composition problems left.  Also we want to
start testing forms ASAP.  Thanks.

I am not sure where the editor folks are in getting ender to be the text
widget/control? Greg, do you know?
Comment 14 User image rods (gone) 1999-04-30 13:18:59 PDT
Moving to M6 and marking as later
Comment 15 User image bobj 1999-05-03 13:29:59 PDT
Rod,  Shouldn't this be ASSIGNED and not RESOLVED/LATER for M6?

*** Bug 5930 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 17 User image Katsuhiko Momoi 1999-05-23 22:30:59 PDT
When this is resolved, testing should include the problem mentioned
in Bug 5930.
Comment 18 User image Peter Trudelle 1999-05-24 16:36:59 PDT
resolving as remind, since we have no plans to test or ship native text
widgets.  Why is this marked as a QA Blocker?  Also, if someone needs to test
5930 when testing this, then 5930 is not a duplicate of this, and should not
have been closed.
Comment 19 User image bobj 1999-06-16 17:44:59 PDT
Should be fixed by Ender-based text widget.  See bug #6262.
