Created a game login form using the Nifty GUI. The interface reacts to the movement and clicking of the mouse, but ignores the input in the text fields. Whether the program is looking for a click handler, instead of typing, or I don’t know what. What could be the case and how to fix it?

Interface/screen.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

The error was in XML. Interactive interface elements without an id remain static. Need not so:

<control name="textfield" maxLength="50" font="Interface/Fonts/Default.fnt"/>
<control name="textfield" maxLength="100" passwordChar="*" font="Interface/Fonts/Default.fnt"/>

Well right:

<control id="mail" name="textfield" maxLength="50" font="Interface/Fonts/Default.fnt"/>
<control id="password" name="textfield" maxLength="100" passwordChar="*" font="Interface/Fonts/Default.fnt"/>

Then the fields are activated.
