Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2014-07-02 17:48:05 UTC
It seems that the Completed event will not fire unless using a hardkeyboard within Android. To reproduce, run the sample on a device/emulator with a softkeyboard installed and notice the event will not fire. You can then run a stock emulator and turn on keyboard support in which after hitting "Enter" on the field, the event fires.

Confirmed, still exists in pre1
Comment 2 rwakelan 2014-08-01 16:28:13 UTC
Still exists in the full 1.2.2 release.  Why is this marked fixed?
Comment 3 Barton 2014-11-24 21:50:29 UTC
Yes, Xamarin.Android
Version: 4.20.0 (Trial Edition)
I'm having this issue. Delays in fixes could be a real barrier to investing in this product. Thanks.

Barton - If you haven't invested yet, don't.  This is one of several bugs in Xamarin.Forms I have personally encountered. None of those bugs have even been touched by Xamarin.  This product should be in alpha/beta. Instead, they have paying customers reporting bugs that never get looked at, let alone fixed.

Is there any timeline on when this may be fixed.  I have the latest stable release of xamarin.forms and it is still occurring.
Comment 6 Seth Rosetter 2015-01-14 19:11:04 UTC
Should be fixed in 1.3.2-pre1

I have checked this issue and observed that the application throw exception on Xamarin.Forms.

On Xamarin.Forms.1.0.6186 :

Enter some text to Textbox and press the enter the popup show message "Completed Event Fired", "Time to dances a jig".

On Xamarin.Forms. :

Enter some text to Textbox and press the enter no event fire.

On Xamarin.Forms. :

Enter some text to Textbox and press the enter the application throw a exception.

Note: I have checked this issue on Emulator and Device. I am getting same behavior on both.

Comment 8 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-02-02 01:49:47 UTC
This crash is because the sample is out of date. The overload in usage requires the cancel button be passed valid text. There is an overload which does not take a cancel button instead.
Comment 9 Parmendra Kumar 2015-02-02 09:28:49 UTC
As per comment #8 the sample is out of date  So I am going to closing this issue.
