    Hello forum, just wondering what's up here. Just enter any text into the upper [textedit]. I don't see why it crashes, it does so 100% btw. Can anyone reproduce?

      It seems that having two textedit objects get a Return message at the same time is a problem. Try this.

      Ok, deferlow is fine and I'll use that, thanks for that. But I don't understand the logic at all. Is there one static textedit class or something that communicates with the event handler? Or something with getting focus while this is being used? Just doesn't seen necessary to me...

      Thanks. This has been fixed for the next incremental. In the meantime, using deferlow is the way to go.
