AutoComplete (Xamarin.Forms on Android): unable to type

I've a reasonably simple implementation of SfAutoComplete on my page - but I don't seem to be able to type in it at all... It's behaving like a readonly Entry.

Here's my code:
                  IsEnabled="{Binding ShowCompanies}"
                  SuggestionMode="Contains" AutoCompleteMode="SuggestAppend" 
                  Watermark="Select a company..." />
I also have a little code in the source to populate the autocompletion suggestions:
CompaniesAutoComplete.AutoCompleteSource = d.Companies.Select(c => c.HumanReadable).ToList();
(This resolves to a List<string> for the AutoCompleteSource.)

Any ideas why I can't type in the box?

A partial solution for anyone else seeing this! Don't put it inside a Table. I changed the layout to StackLayout and all's well.
