I have an Entry control.
I try to entry.Focus() but the focus is never set.
I've tried in iOS
Also in Android I don't see any "focus" on entry
you're trying to `entry.SetFocus ()` from the Page constructor. At that time, the page is not on screen and can't be focused reliably.
To get the behavior you expect, invoke `entry.SetFocus ()` from `OnAppearing ()`
public class PageFocus : ContentPage
public PageFocus ()
StackLayout sl = new StackLayout ();
sl.Padding = new Thickness (10, 20, 10, 0);
entry = new Entry ();
entry.Placeholder = "ENTRY";
Content = sl;
protected override void OnAppearing ()
ok Stephane, thanks
