Editor - ReturnType = Done

Thread ID:

Asked On September 2, 2019 10:51 AM UTC

Good day,


Using SfDataForm, I have implemented a MultiLineEditor in XAML as follows:

<dataform:DataFormTextItem Name="Notes" Editor="MultilineText" />

The standard keyboard is displayed with a NEXT option as a return type.

Selecting the NEXT control/button causes a exception 'focus search returned a view that wasn't able to take  focus'.

I wish to change the keyboard behavior from NEXT to DONE in the XAML file (Entry.ReturnType = Done)

Kindly point me to an example or documentation that shows how this can be achieved in the XAML context.

Warm regards

Hi Ian, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
Based on the shared information, we have checked your requirement “Change return key behavior of DataFormMultilineTextItem”. As per DataForm implementation, when the next key pressed new line will be added in Multiline text editor, which is the default behavior of Editor field and we can’t set ReturnType for Multiline editor. ReturnType can be changed for DataFormTextItem using custom editor. 
We have tested the same with MultilineText editor and we are unable to get any exception, while pressing return key new line added in editor. 
We have attached the tested sample for your reference, 
Sample link: DataForm 
We have tested with Syncfusion update version and Xamarin.Forms version 
Please check the sample and let us know if you still facing the same issue? If yes, please modify the sample based on your scenario and revert us back with the following details, 
·       Device configuration details 
·       Syncfusion and Xamarin.Forms update version 
·       Share DataForm model 
It will be helpful for us to check on it and provide you the solution at the earliest. 
Subburaj Pandian V
