After installing 5.4.0 or 5.4.1, The EntryElement does not show the text entered.
My code did not change.
Reverting back to 5.2 ame then work.

Isn't this the same as bug #7116? In any case we'll need a test case to try it ourselves.
Comment 2 Sebastien Pouliot 2012-09-24 10:36:24 UTC
It could also be related to bug #4736 and other ones (I don't recall the numbers).

A "short-lived" change that allowed tracking updates was reverted since it introduced some regressions.

I'm having the same problem in version Xamarin Studio 4.0.1 and iOS
Comment 4 m 2013-08-07 05:01:11 UTC
I'm also seeing this bug (iOS 6.1 and 6.0 simulator + Xamarin Studio 4.0.1).
Comment 5 Chris 2013-08-20 07:12:26 UTC
I've go the same problem since I updated to Xamarin iOS 6.4. It appears that the frame of the entryelement is wrong. For example, I've got X=25, Y=20.5, W=275, H=0.

I've fixed it temporary by giving the entryelement an fixed frame (Element.cs, around line 1555).
Comment 6 Chris 2013-08-20 07:14:15 UTC
Btw, the frame is only wrong after a few times the root element appears on screen.
