  <Collection id="library" src="library" instance="true"/>
  <Window id="index">
    <View dataCollection="$.library">
      <Label text="{name}" />
      <TextField text="Quantity" onBlur="setQuantity" />
Add a viewMore function in index.js:

function setQuantity(event) {
  alert('View more');

Results Alloy output

for (var i = 0; len > i; i++) {
var __alloyId219 = Ti.UI.createTextField({});

setQuantity ? $.__views.__alloyId211.addEventListener("blur", setQuantity) : __defers["$.__views.__alloyId211!blur!setQuantity"] = true;



message = "'undefined' is not an object (evaluating '$.__views.__alloyId211.addEventListener')";

    A solution that works, but do not know if it is correct

    {color:red} File Alloy/commands/compile/parsers/Ti.UI.TextField.js
    // Update the parsing state return { parent: {}, styles: state.styles, code: code };
    // Update the parsing state nodeState.styles = state.styles; nodeState.code = code; return nodeState; ``` :D

    Fix for one is probably going to solve the other

    PR: https://github.com/appcelerator/alloy/pull/419 Test app: https://github.com/feons/alloy/tree/ALOY-913/test/apps/testing/ALOY-913 Functional Test: 1. Run the test app on iOS 2. Check Resources/iphone/alloy/controllers/index.js:
        37             var __alloyId6 = Ti.UI.createTextField({
        38                 right: 0,
        39                 height: "50dp",
        40                 width: "100dp",
        41                 borderColor: "#ccc",
        42                 borderWidth: 1,
        43                 value: "1",
        44                 color: "#000",
        45                 text: "Quantity"
        46             });
        47             __alloyId4.add(__alloyId6);
        48             setQuantity ? __alloyId6.addEventListener("focus", setQuantity) : __defers["__alloyId6!focus!setQuantity"] = true;
    3. The event listener is attached to the right object *__alloyId6.*

    Event listener seems to be attached correctly, however the sample app presents a couple of issues. 1. In Styles folder, instead of app.tss , there is an app.js , which in studio is generating an error message. 2. Sample is not runnable on Android as in the index.xml the object is used, which is iOS only. Removing it , it runs fine also on Android. Reopening.

    I've merged the PR against master. However the PR on 1_5_X includes extraneous changes. It will need to be resubmitted.

    Verified fix on: Mac OSX 10.9.4 Appcelerator Studio, build: Titanium SDK build: 3.4.0.v20140827134113 Titanium CLI, build: 3.4.0-dev Alloy: 1.5.0-dev iOS Device 5S (7.1.1) Android Emulator 4.4.2 Event listener is attached correctly as per Federico's comment. Sample is now runnable on Android as has been removed and the app.js file in styles has been replaced by app.tss. Closing ticket.
