When using a custom Entry renderer for Entry controls inside a ListView, setting SetSelectAllOnFocus(true) does not work for some of the Entry controls.
It works fine for the Entry controls that are rendered when the initial ListView cells are rendered. It's the new cells that get rendered when the list is scrolled that experience the issue. Oddly though, it only happens the first time they are selected. If the Entry is selected again, then it works.
I noticed that the Entries that were having the issue did not have a null e.OldElement. I looked at the Forms source and noticed: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/blob/master/Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android/Renderers/EntryRenderer.cs#L58
Calling the following seems to fix the issue:
if(e.OldElement != null)
### Steps to Reproduce
1. Run the attached project
2. Press on one of the initial Entries
3. Scroll the List and press on the Entry of a newer cells
### Expected Results
Pressing Entry will highlight all the text inside the control.
### Actual Results
Pressing one of the initial Entries selects all its text. However, in the newer Entries, it will not select any text and just show the cursor.
### Testing Info
Tested using Forms 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124-pre2
I noticed that SetSelectAllOnFocus(true) does not work at all in AdjustResize.
