Closed Bug 851388 (caret-sel) Opened 8 years ago Closed 8 years ago
Story - Add support for caret selection via touch
Once bug 832957 lands, selection will have improved quite a bit. However those patches do not include caret selection support. STR: 1) open a page with a text area with text in it 2) tap once to set the caret location result: the caret is positioned but there is no metro singular monocle to drag select text displayed.

Swapping out epic trackers: this was in app bar, it should be content feature related. (content text selection)

In testing, please avoid bug 854182. I'll be looking at monocle positioning problems after the soft keyboard comes up once we figure out the right way to handle that. I have revamped tests and some new ones as well, but those bugs don't have to block qa'ing this work.

Juan, you might want to wait for bug 848594 too.
Tested on 2013-03-29 on Nightly built from http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/8693d1d4c86d - Tested basic caret selection in text areas. When I tap on the text I get a monocle to appear, which I can drag left or right to select text. - I still see problems associated with bug 854182, where depending on where your text area is relative to where the virtual keyboard appears the text area can be hidden. - Caret selection and monocles are dismissed when tapping outside the text area. - I saw both problems mentioned above bug 850673 and bug 855417. I'm verifying the basic story, and I will follow up with the associated defects.

Followed steps provided in success scenario. When I tapped between "Write something here" I saw one monocle. I dragged to select word, the word was selected. If I one monocle cross other then the behavior is not expected. See attached video at http://youtu.be/QFuVziHhV2Y
