If you use a EntryCell in a TableView and set Keyboard = Keyboard.Numeric, than there is no possibility to hide the keyboard.

Sample Project

I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce this issue.

Steps I followed:

1. Open attached sample
2. Build and deployed attached project
3. Click on Numeric keyboard text box.

When I set the Keyboard property to Keyboard.Numeric, I observed that we can not hide the numeric keyboard.

Additional Info: I am not getting this behavior with Android project. For android this project is working fine.

Comment 2 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-03-09 10:29:16 UTC
Should be fixed in 1.4.1-pre1
Comment 3 web 2015-03-11 14:57:08 UTC
No, isn't fixed with 1.4.1-pre1. If you use a numeric keypad on iOS, there isn't a possibility to hide the keyboard.

Additionally the TextColor of Entry couldn't be set.
Comment 4 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-05-29 21:40:03 UTC
I have double checked you can tap off the keyboard with a NumericKeyboard. Can you please validate you are not able to reproduce this behavior?

Just tap into any white space in your app.
Comment 5 web 2015-06-08 12:09:17 UTC
I use this object in a TableView as settings dialog. Find a image of the settings page at https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/attachment.cgi?id=11511 and the code at https://github.com/WFoundation/WF.Player/blob/master/WF.Player.Forms/Settings/SettingsPage.cs.

You are right, I could select another entry of the TableView to hide the keyboard. But I could not tap into a TableSection to hide it. Also it doesn't work with the white space below the TableView. That's the problem.
Comment 6 Stephane Delcroix 2015-06-25 07:38:53 UTC
this will be fixed in 1.4.4
Comment 7 Parmendra Kumar 2015-07-21 08:29:18 UTC
I have checked this issue with X.F 1.4.4-pre3 and its working fine at my end.

Hence closing this issue.
