Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2014-08-08 12:29:39 UTC
We got an issue with Xamarin.Forms iOS program and the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard on an IPad.
Every time we push the Tab Key on the keyboard we get an exception. The app runs fine with touch usage and other keys on the Bluetooth keyboard working also fine, it runs also fine on an iPhone 4 without Bluetooth Keyboard.
It doesn't matter if we are in an Entry field, or nothing is selected the app will always close with the following exception.

We only stumbled on this error after Apple refused the deployment of our App to the AppStore.

Can replicate this issue on any X.Forms samples

I got the same issue on the iPhone and it resulted in my app being failed by Apple for the store as the person verifying it used a keyboard!

Any chance this could be looked at?  As I am not getting paid on this app until its on the store!

Whoah, If I could elevate this to critical, I would. Getting rejected by Apple costs a ton of time and money.

Can no longer reproduce in 1.3.1. If you see this appear again please re-open.
