Overlapping Search Bar Queries

Issue Type: Display
Impact: Low
Frequency: Constantly
Date First Experienced: 2021-02-24 10:02:00 (-06:00)
Date Last Experienced: 2021-02-24 11:02:00 (-06:00)

Reproduction Steps:

  1. Tap on the magnifying glass at the top of the screen (search bar.)
  2. Type in a query.
  3. Do not submit the query. Instead, tap on the search bar/inputted query.
  4. Observe the overlap that occurs.

I am using the latest Roblox app version.

Device specs:

  • Galaxy J7 Sky Pro
  • Android version 6.0.1

Expected Behavior:
I expect the query to not overlap with itself.

Actual Behavior:
The query overlaps with itself. A gif of this occurring:

This only occurs when you follow the steps presented above. The text stops overlapping once you tap out of the search bar or start typing in the search bar.

Workaround:
I do not have a workaround.

To further clarify, this occurs with other search bars within the app. For example, when using the search box in the catalog. Simply follow the steps above, just in a different search bar.

EDIT: After testing out this bug some more, I have concluded that this does not occur with the Player or Group search bars. (I do not have a GIF, but just trust me on this one.)

This seems resolved for the “Search instead for players named ___”. The UI has apparently been revamped and doesn’t feature the search bar anymore.

However, it’s still a problem in the Catalog aka Avatar Shop

Notice how the last few letters look bolded in the search bar, but they turn back to normal upon entering another letter or changing the query in any way.
