Hi, there!

I went through the Todo List and I attempted to do one little "enhancement" by myself: clear the currently entered text in "newTaskTI" TextInput when the Enter key is pressed.

private function createTask():void
_tasks.addItem(new Task(newTaskTI.text));
newTaskTI.text = "";

The problem with this is that the caret is gone once newTaskTI.text was assigned an empty string, while the TextInput is still in focus. So there is no way to continue typing in newTaskTI; you have to re-focus it even though it's still in focus!

Thanks for your time!

Re: Todo List example on chapter 1
It turned out to be a bug for the spark TextInput. They just fixed it (3 days after the bug was filed. That was quick for a large company such as Adobesmilie)
