Project to reproduce this bug
This is an issue on devices with a physical keyboard where the user might want to enter data/navigate the page using hardware buttons.
Entering data into an entry view and hitting "enter" will clear the keyboard focus state completely. The page can no longer be navigated using the dpad buttons.
Steps to reproduce:
1) download and run the project on a device with a physical keyboard (tested on Intermec CN51)
2) Click the entry field and enter some text using hardware or software keyboard.
3) Click the enter button
Focus is removed from the input field but is not set on any other view. As a result the dpad up/down buttons cannot be used for page navigation.
The keyboard focus should change from the entry view to the next focusable view
Similarly to 30891, this is intended behavior and may be worth looking at in the future for platform specific functionality.
