I'm not sure if this is true..
but that's what I've come to the conclusion.?

when I use a text input field, for an email submit form..
if I put a masking layer on top of the text input layer..
the input field is visible, but when you type in it, the text is not..

Is there any way to prevent this from happening?

please be more specific...

is the problem that you want the text to be masked and invisible aswell? is it a password feild or something and thats why you dont want it to be visible?

I'm buildin a contact form..
I'm using Components for my text input fields..

window>componets>UI>text input

I have my MovieClip that contains all my text inputs on one layer..
and I have a layer above thats masking the contact MovieClip..

but when I export.. the text wont show up when you type in the fields..
everything else shows up fine, when you type in the fields, that text wont show..


any ideas?

mmmm ... U said it your self , the mask Depth is higher than the input fields them selves , so its like placing a movieclip to an object and only that movieclip is receiving the clicks ...

the onlyway to do this i guess is to swap the depth of the masker ... but then , u will lose the mask ...

what u need to do is , cut the input fields ...and paste them (same place) over the mask ...

i dont have any further ideas ...
