Layoutproblems with SfTextInputLayout on UWP


I've encountered several problems with the TextInputLayout and they seem to happen only on UWP. Most of them I could replicate in a sample project:

The most severe might happen when putting more of them into a border. as you can see in the sample project the border is not resized correctly and quite a lot of the content is moving outside of it. This seems to be connected with putting the border into a scrollView.

The second problem is my usage of the TextInputLayout in my derived control TextDisplay. When using an editor to show multiline texts the control is not resized at all and only shows the Title. On iOS and Android this works.

A similar problem might happen with my login page. I've created a login page with SfTextInputLayout elements and bound the text to a viewModel. If I load old login data into the entry-elements they are not shown and I can not click on the SfTextInputLayout to see the text in it. It works on other platforms and if I do not have text from the beginning on UWP it also works on UWP. Unfortunatly I could not reproduce this behavior in my sample, but I found a workaround by setting a heightRequest to the border containing my login fields.

Hi Martin, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
Query 1: When placed text input layout inside border not resized properly. 
We have checked the scenario using the provided sample and the content of the border is rendered properly without any sizing issue. So, could you please provide us the replication steps to reproduce the border issue or attach the issue screenshot if possible. 
Query 2: When showing multiline text, control is not resized. 
Query 3: If I load old login data into the entry-elements they are not shown, and I cannot click on the SfTextInputLayout to see the text in it. 
The above two issues are already known issues in the SfTextInputLayout in UWP platform. We are working on this issue, we will fix and provide patch for this issue on October 8th, 2019. Appreciate your patience until then.

Hello Rachel,

thanks for the fast response. Syncfusion support is excellent as always.

As for the first query: I've provided a screenshot of it. This is the sample project started on UWP on a Win 10 Pro Desktop PC running 10.0.17763. I've restarted the computer and still get the same issue. You can see the red border from the SfBorder element cutting right through a SfTextInputLayout. The button, that is shown below, should also still be within the border.

I noticed, that the border gets redrawn correctly the moment I resize the window horizontally.

Updating to the newest Xamarin.Forms and the Syncfusion 17.3 beta as well as changing the target version to build 18362 did not help.
