Description Paul Diston 2016-09-16 13:47:11 UTC

In my Xamarin Forms app, running on iOS I am experiencing an issue where if the Entry’s Font Size property is set to 22 or higher then when entering text that goes beyond what can fit inside the Entry the normal scrolling which you see at a smaller font size (20 or lower) stops working.

Do you have an idea why this might be happening?

In summary :-

12 - Working
14 - Working
16 - Working
18 - Working
20 - Working
22 – Not Working

Kind Regards,

Another issue is that when you hit the Return key, the text goes outside the bounds of the entry. Test it with Fontsize = 200.

This may just be an iOS issue rather than XF.

This does appear to be the case but I think it may be worthwhile to add some platform specific features to enable AdjustsFontSizeToFitWidth as well as modify the MinimumFontSize values. I'll discuss it to see if it's something we might want to add.
