SfAutoComplete Dismiss Keyboard on Item Selection

I'm looking for a way to dismiss the keyboard when an item is selected in the autoComplete suggestion box.

The selectionChanged event does not fire when an item is tapped from the suggestion box, so it doesn't provide what I need. Also, the .Unfocus() event doesn't dismiss the keyboard like the Xamarin.Forms.SearchBar does. Can we get this functionality added?



autoCompleteCharacterList.SelectionChanged += AutoCompleteCharacterList_SelectionChanged;

            autoCompleteCharacterList.ValueChanged += AutoCompleteCharacterList_ValueChanged;
//gets fired on every keypress, but does nothing
void AutoCompleteCharacterList_ValueChanged (object sender, Syncfusion.SfAutoComplete.XForms.ValueChangedEventArgs e)

//never gets fired when an item from the suggestion list is tapped
        void AutoCompleteCharacterList_SelectionChanged (object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
