Hi, I have noticed that the chat would close the keyboard once a new message is sent that is intersecting the keyboard visually.

would it be possible to add a flag which allows us to override this behaviour such that the chat does not close once a message is placed outside of the chat window's visible message area?

This would ideally  be a flag on the SfChat (ShouldCloseAfterMessageSent) 

To replicate this:
- Create a simple chat with bound Messages

- Send a few messages until the keyboard hides itself

Expected behaviour (as most mainstream chat applications):
- Keyboard should not automatically close itself once a message is sent
