I have been stuck with this issue for a few days now.
I am executing a script which has to type some text in a search box present in the page.
When ever the sendKeys() command is executed, the control clicks/taps other elements (e.g. TextView element) in the page but does not type anything in the EditText element.
I am using
Appium Version 1.3.3
Android Version 4.4.2
(this behaviour is consistent on all android 4.4.2 devices)
I also tried to use the sendKeys function in the Appium Inspector, and the behaviour is consistent.
I have tried to insert text/type an alphabet using KeyCode - driver.sendKeyEvent(29).
But this also causes the same strange behaviour.
