[GRADLE-3446] Console.readline() prompt text is overwritten by status line Created: 02/May/16  Updated: 17/Nov/16  Resolved: 17/Nov/16

Known Issue Of:



I have a script that ask for user input using System.console().readline('label'). The label is printed on console and the user can type something.
I upgraded from gradle 2.12 to 2.13 and now the first label I use in the task disappears.

For example, when I run the following:

def console = System.console()
def firstname
def lastname

task run {
    doLast {
        firstname = console.readLine('> What is your first name?: ')
        lastname = console.readLine('> What is your last name?: ')

I get that with 2.12:

"gradle-2.12/bin/gradle" run
> Building 0% > :run> What is your first name?: John
> What is your last name?: Doe

And that with 2.13:

> "gradle-2.13/bin/gradle" run
> Building 0%> What is your > Building 0% > :runJohn
> What is your last name?: Doe

The first label (> What is your first name?) is not showing.
