We have used the EditText with the children of LinearLayout in Native Android. We have mapped this layout in forms and used inside the ViewCell.
If we focus the EditText it’s not get the focus.
I have prepared a simple sample to reproduce this issue.
I'll set this to confirmed for now but I believe this may be an Android (Google) issue; based on the debug output of "TextView does not support text selection. Selection cancelled." it looks like other individuals have run into this problem both within the context of Forms as well as outside of it.
Just for reference:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/37566303/edittext-giving-error-textview-does-not-support-text-selection-selection-canc (referred to by the above)
This is not the exact same scenario here but I wouldn't be surprised if it was related. We can keep track of this in the meantime.
I have tried the above links, but this issue has not resolved. I have added the CustomRenderer file and used the OnAttachedWindow override method to set the NativeEditText enabled method. I have prepared a simple sample for this scenario.
