Text Area Update control

I am using a text area for entering/updating status of tasks. Previously I only used it for making minor corrections. Recently I tried to enter a larger amount of text and noticed that the cursor would move to the top row left position while I was typing. It looked like it was getting a new value from the database. I then set the polling off option in the binding. I have the Update DB on change set with this entered below.

UPDATE Tasks SET [Status] = '{this}' WHERE [id] = {Root Container.taskNo}

I still have the problem where the cursor moves while I am typing. If I understand the problem correctly, I would like to request a defer update feature.

If you have a solution or work around, let me know.


I experiment with using a “save” button rather than the bidirectional binding, and ensure that the binding is not polling.
