#210 Can't type in the input box in Korean.

Open

I tried to chat with one of my friend in Korean but failed to type.

For typing Korean, some special method is used. In Korean ‘간’ is a combination of ‘ㄱ, ㅏ, ㄴ’.

While I type each of ‘ㄱ, ㅏ, ㄴ’, they must to be held for the combination. But cwtch.im’s input box doesn’t.

Letters can be copied from clipboard and can be sent, though. Because they’re already combined.

Thank you for the report.

Just to confirm, the issue is that the input box doesn’t allow the combination of the three characters?

Some notes for likely fixing this:

  • This is either a bug with the input box and the custom emoji parser hijacking the input method OR
  • We haven’t explicitly enabled an input method which supports this combination (https://www.kdab.com/qt-input-method-depth/)

Either way it seems like while this was a bug in qml in the past (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-52486) it should be fixed in 5.13 so we just have to work out why it’s not being supported in our main input box.

Sorry for confusion. That combination is just an example.

I can’t type a single letter of Korean.

Such as 가 = ㄱㅏ, 닮 = ㄷㅏㄹㅁ

It looks like same problem as the link.

I’ll check it with both old and new version of QT by my own.

Thank you for the answer

@kjs104901: would you mind testing this with some of the other text input boxes in the cwtch ui? in particular, if you go to any of the settings panes and change a group/contact name, do the characters input properly in those text boxes? that should tell us whether the problem is our Qt setup, or our custom behaviour on the message typing field.
