Currently, when pressing the back button or tapping outside of the Display Alert modal disappears and does not return anything on android.

Hi, could you possibly clarify exactly what you mean in terms of what you would expect to occur on Android compared to the other two platforms and their behavior, and perhaps an example?
Comment 2 Rama Bhandaru 2015-09-24 10:47:49 UTC
I would expect a modal dialog, like Alerts using DisplayAlert(), to be truly modal in that any user action other than touching the buttons on the Alert dialog should not dismiss the dialog.

I assumed that was what you meant, but I wanted to make certain of it.
