About the device’s input text dialog box (Flash Lite 2.0)

To open the device’s input dialog box, users must first give an input text field focus, and then press their device’s select key.

The text input dialog box is modal, which means that the user can’t interact with the Flash content while the dialog box has focus. Flash Lite also pauses the playhead in the Flash application while the dialog box has focus.

If the user selects OK (the Left soft key), the text input dialog box closes, and Flash Lite automatically assigns the text to the input text field. If the user selects Cancel (the Right soft key), no text is assigned to the input text field.

The Adobe Device Central emulator mimics the features of the text input dialog box when you test your application in the Flash authoring tool. The following image shows the text input dialog box running in the emulator:
