I really enjoy the CarouselView control. I replace the previous CarouselPage control and its visually far better (for templating) !
However an issue is very annoying for windows mobile 10 users.

When you place an entry inside the CarouselView and then you click on it, a keyboard emulator appears.
However it hides the entry control itself and doesnt push the content up. So users cannot see what they are typing.

It works fine on Android (cannot test on iOS cause i dont have a Mac).

You can find in attach file a small project with the issue. (you ll have to rebuild)

Do you know a workaround for this ? Or any correction release date ?

CarouselView will eventually be replaced by https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/853.

Thank you Paul for your fast answer.

As the CarouselView (from Xamarin) is a highlight topic, may i share that information ? For sure it can help people to decide which CarouselView control to use.
