Can you have an alert dialog that has a text box for user input in it? I have not been able to find an example with it, if it can be done in Ti.
Which begs the question, how do you create a custom view styled like an alert? Specifically, with a modal/translucent background…
As far as I know you can't. Maybe try creating a view that has the look of the alert dialog and add the textfield to it.
Yup, Dan is right on with this one. Just use a custom view and style it like an Alert. It will really be the best way in the long run.
