Description Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 2015-07-15 13:42:06 UTC
There is presently a bug in Forms with MasterDetailPage that, when using Android, does not dismiss an active keyboard when setting a new Detail on a MasterDetailPage. It functions as expected in iOS (WP not tested).

The bug can be reproduced as follows in App.cs:

var master = new MasterDetailPage {
	Master = new ContentPage {
		Content = new StackLayout {
			VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,
			Children = {
				new Label {
					XAlign = TextAlignment.Center,
					Text = "Welcome to Xamarin Forms!"
		Title = "Master 1"

var entry = new SearchBar ();
var page = new ContentPage { Content = entry };
page.ToolbarItems.Add (new ToolbarItem () { Text = "home", Command = new Command (() => {
		master.Detail = new NavigationPage (new ContentPage ());
page.ToolbarItems.Add (new ToolbarItem () { Text = "focus", Command = new Command (() => {
		entry.Focus ();

master.Detail =
	new NavigationPage (

MainPage = master;
