When an Entry has a Numeric keyboard and the Text is bound to a double/float/decimal value it does not allow you to type a period.
The behavior is slightly different on iOS vs. Android, but both are not working as expected.
**Steps to Reproduce:**
1. Run the attached sample on iOS / Android.
2. Tap one of the Entrys to gain focus
3. Delete the contents if there are any and try to type a decimal value like 1.5
4. Repeat for all Entrys to see the differences
If the Decimal/Float/Double has a value already, you can type a period: http://screencast.com/t/eOvmAtwxn
If you clear the values, you can't enter a period anymore. Only when the bound value is a string (Full Name) does it work: http://screencast.com/t/lQ6tXyx7pEN
If the Decimal/Float/Double has a value already, you can not type a period: http://screencast.com/t/lQ6tXyx7pEN
If you clear the values, the caret jumps to the front which is incorrect. Then you can enter a period, but the caret was jumped to the wrong place.: http://screencast.com/t/OGaECtj3d
Should be able to type decimal values on all platforms.
The caret should not jump to the beginning on Android.
**Build Date & Platform:**
Android API 21
I have checked this issue and able to reproduce this. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps and instruction provided in bug description.
For iOS project : I observed that If OI clear the values, I can't enter a period anymore. Only when the bound value is a string (Full Name) does it work.
For Android project: I observed that If I clear the values, the caret jumps to the front which is incorrect. Then you can enter a period, but the caret was jumped to the wrong place.

This seems to be a problem with EntryCell. If you use Entry inside a StackLayout, then all is fine (tested only on Android). Still, this is a confirmed bug and needs a fix.
The problem is due to the bindings. If you remove the bindings, then EntryCell numeric keyboards work fine (again tested only on Android).
When you clear "5" in "1.5", then the remaining "1." gets converted to "1" by your TestClass because "1." is not a number.
Perhaps the solution is to store values as text fields and use a converter to convert texts into numbers or vice versa.
Still occurs as of the 2.3.6-nightly using the attached repro.
Fix ready in branch bz32871; Working on test case...
Should be fixed in 2.4.0-pre1. Thank you!
