Description Jeremy Herbison 2015-05-13 18:23:50 UTC
An Entry with IsPassword=True, on Windows Phone 8.1 (assuming all WinRT) configures the keyboard to auto-capitalize the first letter. Additionally, auto-complete suggestions are offered. Neither makes any sense for a password field.

The best I can find is to set the InputScope to EmailSmtpAddress when IsPassword = True. Unfortunately this adds a ".com" button, but at least solves the above two issues.

Setting Control.IsSuggestionsEnabled does not appear to help, and in fact defaults to false.
