Description Hakan 2017-04-10 17:13:22 UTC
When an entry in a scrollview gets focus and keyboard is shown, I expect that the window is resized and I can scroll through the scrollview. There is even the "AdjustResize" flag to force Android to do so. But neither using this flag in the Activity attribute nor in code using "Window.SetSoftInputMode(Android.Views.SoftInput.AdjustResize);" works. It is always in the AdjustPan mode.

I tried several workaraounds but they do not work across all versions of Android.

I am using FormsAppCompatActivity. You can try it with a simple contentpage-->scrollview-->entries layout in any version of Android.

I believe this is a bug, and an urgent one.

To set the SoftInputMode in an Android Forms project, please use the platform specific feature introduced in Forms 2.3.3: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/xamarin-forms/platform-features/platform-specifics/consuming/android/#Setting_the_Soft_Keyboard_Input_Mode

I just tried the platform specific feature now as per your guidance. It enabled scrolling but it has the side effect that the status bar became white and a blank section appeared between the status bar and the page that is the same height as the status bar and has the background color I set for the status bar.

In addition to the side effect I mentioned above, one other side-effect I noticed is that when you navigate back while the keyboard is open, the navigated page also becomes resized as if the keyboard is open, although the keyboard is automatically closed when the user taps the software navigate back button.

Do you have any recommendations for the problems I mentioned above?

@Hakan: The issue mentioned is on our radar, and a fix is under review.

Comment 6 Hakan 2017-04-17 19:37:24 UTC
As far as I understand, the fix in the link addresses the first issue. Is there any work in progress to adress the second issue I mentioned, the erroneous resizing on back navigation?
Comment 7 Jimmy [MSFT] 2017-06-16 22:04:28 UTC
Fixes for the status bar issue and the resizing issue have been merged and will be available in a future release.
