SfAutoComplete with Numeric Keyboard on Android

Hi,

I want to replace a SearchBar with an SfAutoComplete control.

The searchbar has been customized to display the numeric keyboard (used SearchBarRenderer and set this.Control.SetInputType(InputTypes.ClassNumber); in OnElementChanged override).

I'm trying to achieve the same thing with SfAutoComplete
Instead of the standard keyboard:

The numeric keyboard (InputTypes.ClassNumber) should be displayed:

Hi Thomas,

Greetings from Syncfusion.

We would like to let you know that your requirement could be achieved by using Custom Renderer. We have set the Keyboard using Renderer Class. We have prepared the same with SfAutoComplete. Please have the sample from the below link,

Sample Link: https://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/directtrac/general/ze/AutoCompleteNumeric-141243053

Code Snippet: 
Android: 
protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<SfAutoComplete> e)
        {
            base.OnElementChanged(e);
            if (Control != null)
            {
                Control.GetAutoEditText().InputType = Android.Text.InputTypes.ClassNumber;
            }
        } 

iOS: 
protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<SfAutoComplete> e)
        {
            base.OnElementChanged(e);
            if (Control != null)
            {
                Control.TextField.KeyboardType = UIKeyboardType.NumberPad;
            }
        } 

UWP: 
protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<Syncfusion.SfAutoComplete.XForms.SfAutoComplete> e)
        {
            base.OnElementChanged(e);
            if (Control != null)
            {
                var scope = new InputScope();
                var name = new InputScopeName();
                name.NameValue = InputScopeNameValue.Number;
                scope.Names.Add(name);
                Control.InputScope = scope;
            }
        } 
  
Please check and let us know if you have any concern. 
 
Thanks,
