I need to unfocuse SfAutoComplete when Pan gesture started on other control. I used simple code like "autoComplete.IsFocused = false ". On iOS it seems to works fine, but on Android, behaviour is strange. Control looks unfocused, but soft keyboard stays open (but change its looks).

To reproduce just:

     <SfAutoComplete x:Name="autoComplete"/>

<Label Text="Pan to Unfocus">
          <PanGestureRecognizer PanUpdated="PanGestureRecognizer_OnPanUpdated"/>

private void PanGestureRecognizer_OnPanUpdated(object sender, PanUpdatedEventArgs e)
     autoComplete.IsFocused = false;

Hi Radoslaw, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
We have achieved your requirement by using custom renderer to dismiss the keyboard when focus got changed in SfAutoComplete Control. Please have the sample from the below link. 
Code Snippet: 
 private void Control_FocusChanged(object sender, Com.Syncfusion.Autocomplete.FocusChangedEventArgs e) 
            if (!e.HasFocus) 
                this.inputManager = (InputMethodManager)this.Context.GetSystemService(Android.Content.Context.InputMethodService); 
                this.inputManager.HideSoftInputFromWindow(Control.GetAutoEditText().WindowToken, 0); 
Please check with the sample and let us know if you have any concern.

Thank you very much for help, it works like a charm. I also noticed that this issue was fixed in the latest SfAutoComplete version. Am I right?

Anyway, once again thank you for amazing support.

Best regards,
