#203 SCIM doesn't work in Flash

Cyker Way

Cannot call out SCIM when I want to input Chinese characters in Flash input box, no matter what browser I use (Chromium/Firefox). However, I can type characters somewhere else and paste them in.

    I can input Japanese text on Flash Player 10.1 with iBus but not so with SCIM. I think even Flash Player may have some bugs, the cause of this bug is SCIM has some bugs. We're tracking this bug in bugzilla too.

    I have tested scim 1.4.14, ibus 1.4.1, firefox 15.0.1 and flash player 11.2 r202 using this page: http://active.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tools-tips/quick-tip-text-input-and-text-area-components-in-flash-cs5/

    For TextInput widget, I can turn on the scim but cannot input anything; for TextArea widget, the scim works fine without any problem. However, I cannot switch to ibus in both TextInput and TextArea widgets. I believe that some problem is solved in scim 1.4.14 but there are still some problems remained in flash player and/or scim (even ibus).
