TextInput only focused when placeholder text touched


I have an SfTextInputLayout on my page. It works fine on Android, UWP and IOS.
However there is one strange thing on IOS:
If I want to type in text to the input, then on IOS I only have the control focused and the keyboard shown when I touch on the placeholder text. If I touch next to the placeholder text still inside the SfTextInputLayout then it not gets focused. This especially uncomfortable when the placeholder text is short compared to the width of the inputlayout so the user usually not touches the placeholder text so it gets not focused. Do you experience the same?

Hi Gyori,


Greetings from Syncfusion.


We have checked the reported scenario in iOS platform and the control gets focused while clicking anywhere in the control. We are afraid that, we are not able to reproduce the issue at our end. We have attached the tested sample for your reference. (Xamarin.Forms version –  and SfTextInputLayout version –

Please check the attached sample and revert us by modifying the sample to reproduce the issue which will be helpful for us to assist you earlier.
