Description John Hardman 2016-08-10 14:25:09 UTC
The DisplayAlert function returns true on UWP if the user hits the Escape key when the alert is visible.

Using the DisplayAlert call with four arguments, 

    public System.Threading.Tasks.Task<bool> DisplayAlert (String title, String message, String accept, String cancel)

I would expect hitting Escape to be equivalent to selecting the cancel option, not the accept option. In that case, a return value of false would be expected if Escape is hit.

Also, related to fixing the return value, can the return value be documented on the following page please:

Should be fixed in 2.3.3-pre1. Thank you!
