Is there anyway I can (forcefully) maintain focus in the TextInput control (may be by extending TextFieldTextEditor or TextBlockTextEditor) ??
I would like to define functions to call setFocus & clearFocus, and the input field should loose focus only when I am explicitly calling clearFocus !! Basically something similar to 'preventDefault' in a FOCUS_OUT event listener.
I tried overriding the existing clearFocus() function, but that doesn't seem to work, the textinput loses focus if you tap outside of the field.
