Description E.Z. Hart [MSFT] 2016-08-11 15:27:18 UTC
In UWP, on both phone and desktop, if the user enters text into an Entry and then removes focus from the Entry, the text in the Entry is no longer visible. Re-focusing the Entry causes the text to display again.

This problem only occurs if the application is built with the Target Version set to "Windows 10 Anniversary Edition (10.0; Build 14393)". Targeting earlier versions of Universal Windows works fine.

The greater bug here is that automated unit tests did not catch this.

Isn't there a large suite of unit tests for ensuring controls work correctly?
