Using editboxes on a raspberry pi 3 B doesn't work, I can't input text or delete characters. Also, even while a box is active, input is not blocked to the other input commands such as GetRawKeyReleased(key).

Has anybody else used editboxes on a pi and did they work?

Is there a place I can report bugs that will get noticed by the developers?

bug reports go here: https://github.com/TheGameCreators/AGK-Studio/issues

obviously it's best to confirm with others before reporting which i know you're trying to do but this particular board tends to get overlooked/gets little traffic.

any chance that you use discord? if so, you may have better luck HERE.

otherwise, feel free to report it @ the github link.

Thanks. I had noticed a similar post from a few years ago with the same problem, but there were no responses either. I have added an issue on GitHub as I feel it is a rather basic and important feature.

revisiting this and:
Quote: "even while a box is active, input is not blocked to the other input commands such as GetRawKeyReleased(key)"

being Active (as you advise) and having Focus are 2 different things.

ie, Active simply means it can be selected for input. Focus = "currently accepting input" into the editbox.

does your editbox have focus while you're trying to input?

then, there's no reason that i can think of to limit input solely to the editbox when it has focus so i would want things like GetRawKeyPressed/Released(), etc, to be fully functional.

if you're checking for such things, you can prompt whatever you might want to happen when they occur (or choose to do nothing).

Yes. And yes, I did mean focus.

I thought it blocked input when I've run AppGameKit on Windows, but I've checked it again and was somehow mistaken!

This possibly isn't related, but when using the GetRawKeyPressed/Released() commands returns nothing when checking for the return key on Raspberry Pi, while other keys such as the space bar, do work. I have run it on Windows for testing, then run it on Raspberry Pi with the exact code so I am sure that the code is correct.
