Android: Appium:1.2.2: Sendkeys issue with Hinted Edit Text

I am using Appium 1.2.2 version for Android.
I have an Hinted text field.
When i use send keys, it is also typing the hinted text along with the text i am sending.
I tried to use “clear” and still it does not work.
Any workaround available for this scenario?

BY the way, i am using java-client 1.7.0

This is a bug, will fix on 1.2.3

the bug still exists with latest Ruby client

whenever it starts typing string , it tries to use “hint text”

is there any work around for this ?


Is there a way to disable auto suggest through appium capabilities at the start of test case ?

Looks like this issue is not fixed yet. I am using Appium 1.4.13 and the bug still exists.
