My name is Benjamin Dumke-von der Ehe. I am Stack Overflow Valued Associate #00007, which is just a confusing way of saying that I work as a developer for Stack Exchange.

I am @balpha on Twitter. My blog's "about" page explains the origin of my user name.

I am the creator of Unicornify, the service that gives you these lovable creatures:

I also created Lyfe, a small library adding yield-based generators to JavaScript, and Not a Real Question, a little game that's played with data from various Stack Exchange sites.

I sometimes have a strange sense of humor, but I also like to explain things I fix, break, care about, or come up with.

comment Focus issue with multiple EditTexts
@RossHambrick Unless of course it's not actually necessary to make a focus change. In the case that made me notice this issue, I could prevent problems by not changing focus when it wasn't strictly necessary. Depends on the use case.

comment Focus issue with multiple EditTexts
@RossHambrick Yeah, you have to be outside the event handler, so that's really the only solution I can think of.

comment Can't use @@ServerName in answer
Chances are that that's indeed a broken proxy or something like that. Assuming you're at work, maybe talk to your sysadmins about it? (And if that's not it, please show the full server response).

Hmm, I don't see any failed requests from you in the access logs, nor exceptions in the error log. If this happens again, can you check (via Chrome dev tools or Fiddler or similar) whether there's a request being made to the server, and what the actual response is?

My answer says "from the next build on"; see meta.stackexchange.com/questions/166787/… for some details.
