Description Brian 2015-06-26 16:23:51 UTC
I have an iOS keyboard shortcut that changes the text to "On My Way" when I type in "omw". When I enter "omw" into an Entry control, the text displayed is correctly displayed as "On My Way", but the Text Property of the entry control is still "omw".

You can test it with this code snippet:

var testEntry = new Entry();
var testButton = new Button();
testButton.Clicked += (sender, e) => DisplayAlert("Test", testEntry.Text, "OK"); // Displays "omw"

Content = new StackLayout 
Orientation = StackOrientation.Vertical,
VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.StartAndExpand,
Children = { testEntry, testButton }

Annoyingly iOS doesn't seem to trigger the EditingChanged event when this happens.

Should be fixed in 2.3.4-pre1. Thank you!
