SCW Delay Android

Hi Everyone:

I've been testing the SCW and it works really well. The only problem that I have is that because I just want to receive a single character at a time I reset the value in the TextField. But now the characters that require multiple strokes like A or X wont work properly.

I believe the solution is to increase the delay before the character starts to be recognized maybe using setAutoCommitDelay, but I don't know exactly how to do that.

I would appreciate your help!

Thanks Olivier and sorry for the delayed answer.

This worked partially, I had to use:


to clear the result after each character.

Thanks again.

Dear Imalo,

thank you for contacting us.

You could proceed as in the following post: http://developer-support.myscript.com/support/discussions/topics/16000007714

In the OnRecogntionEnd function, you can retrieve each character, proceeding as follows:

if (mActiveField != null) {

 String characteresult=null;
 String result = mWidget.getText();
 int nbCandidatesText = result.length();
 CandidateInfo candidate = mWidget.getCharacterCandidates(nbCandidatesText-1);
 characteresult = candidate.getSelectedLabel();


This way, you do not have to change the delay with the setAutoCommitDelay.

Let us know id this helps.

Best regards,
