sample forms content page which does not hide keyboard
Attaching example. Per advice from Xamarin Forums, View.Unfocus() should hide the keyboard. It doesn't seem to work on iOS. Attached working sample.
I was trying to see what the differences between Editor and Entry were, since Entry correctly hides the keyboard when Unfocus() is called, and I noticed this in the EditorRenderer:
private void OnEnded(object sender, EventArgs eventArgs)
base.Element.IsFocused = true;
private void OnStarted(object sender, EventArgs eventArgs)
base.Element.IsFocused = false;
It seems like the logic to set IsFocused is reversed. OnStarted should be setting IsFocused = true while OnEnded should be setting it to false.
I wrote a test and derived from the EditorRenderer and overrode this behavior in OnElementChanged using reflection, like so:
textView.Started += (sender, ev) =>
typeof(Editor).BaseType.GetProperty("IsFocused").SetValue(Element, true, null);
textView.Ended += (sender, ev) =>
typeof(Editor).BaseType.GetProperty("IsFocused").SetValue(Element, false, null);
After doing this, calling the Editor's Unfocus() method from a button hides the keyboard.
This seems to have cropped back up in Forms 1.3.0 pre-3.
Hi Nathan it seems fixed in pre-3. Using this sample code provided the keyboard is hidden.
I have confirmed this bug was fixed in Xamarin.Forms 1.4.2
