Can we customize "TextEditBox" node in roku?

I am working on a roku app using scene graph component. I am using TextEditBox node to take input.
My issue is when I type new character after specific length, newly character becomes hidden with "..."  
but I want to show last entered character.

Simply I want behaviour like input box in HTML or roSearchScreen in brightScript.

Can anyone suggest any ideas on how to do this?


Thank you

I am also having this problem. Is this a bug? Sure looks like a bug.

We ended up creating a custom component based on Label which removes leading characters from display as new keys are typed. It works but not ideal.

Veeta, I would love to know how you guys did that. Mainly, do you have a blinking cursor?

No blinking cursor... it was unnecessary extra functionality.  Our solution wasn't far off from the one outlined in https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=101330 though we had a full custom keyboard, not the keyboarddialog.

FWIW, a bug / enhancement request ticket has been filed.

I am trying to change the font of the TextEditBox. Compiler does not give any error, but the font does not change. Is this a bug ?
