Typing is garbled in IE11

See original GitHub issue

Typing “Typing a test message” (and messing it up the second time 😸) with react/react-dom@15.0.2 and react-textarea-autosize@4.0.1:


The event handler isn’t doing anything asynchronous:

  handleTextChange(e) {

This only seems to happen when the component is controlled - working around it by using it without a value prop. as that suits my current use case.

I had this problem in an application, not with just this module, but regular text inputs too. React made a change in v15 to how the change event is handled in IE11 and below - my solution was just to change the ‘onChange’ event to ‘onInput’. After that everything worked just fine.

I noticed that some changes were made in React for IE 11 in the latest release (v15.4.2).

We might want to recheck these IE 11 bugs given React has resolved issues of its own regarding textarea elements.

#125 may also be affected.
