Can't input text into a SfAutoComplete control inside a ViewCell

When a SfAutoComplete control is inside a ViewCell, I tap into the control but it doesn't get focused. I can't input any text because keyboard is not displayed. This happens only in Android but not in iOS (tested in Simulator).

Hi Ian,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

Query : AutoComplete is not editable inside TableView

We are facing issues with the edit text custom component while using inside TableView. So, we have raised a ticket with Xamarin forums for same and the link as follows.

Hi, some months ago I contact you for this issue, and some updates for syncfusion and xamarin.forms have been released.
Is there any updates for this problem yet?

Hi Ian,

Thanks for your update.

We have checked the reported issue with updated Xamarin Forms version, but unfortunately still this issue is reproduced in custom controls. We will get back to you once the reported issue has been resolved in Xamarin side.

I reported this issue since December 2016 and I still have no news about this problem being resolved... Xamarin have released some updates to Xamarin.Forms since then also, so what is the current status of this?

 Hi Ian Najar, 
Thanks for your update.

The reported issue is not due to the control implementation and by default the Xamarin controls are facing the same issue.We haven’t received any update from the Xamarin support forum. We request you to follow up the below Xamarin forum link for further updates.
