Input field inside popover disappears when clicked
Question
Application Type
Reactive

Greetings,

I´m facing the following problem with OutSystems. I first defined a table that has a icon (that´s actually a Popover menu) in each of its header cell. When the icon (Top content) is clicked, the bottom part is displayed with an input field and two buttons.

The problem is when I click the text input, the popup dissapears. I can´t keep it open to type anything. If I right click it, the cursor appear inside the text input and then I can input any text.


Thanks in advance.

Hi Rafael,

One of the solutions for your use case is to stop the click event propagation on input click inside the popover widget using JS.

1) Add a custom style class to the input

2) In the screen OnReady event action flow, register an event to the popover widget using the below-mentioned Javascript.

JS Snippet:

var popoverEle = document.getElementById($parameters.CommentPopoverId);

if(popoverEle) {
    popoverEle.addEventListener('click', function (e) {
        if(e.target.classList.contains('popover-input')) {
            e.stopPropagation();
        }
    });
}

Demo screen: CodeInputPopoverTask

Refer to the attached oml.

I hope this helps you!

Have you tried to debug it? Can't know without the OML, but probably (somehow) your input is calling the same action of the popup / changing the value of your boolean variable.

Hello @Rafael Belem 

can you share your oml?


Hi Rafael Belem,

If possible then please share oml 

thanks


Sorry, I´m a noobie with Outsystems.

I did an oversimplification of what I need: click an perform a text input inside a popover menu.

And here is a gif with the described behaviour.
