     <inputLayout:SfTextInputLayout Style="{StaticResource InputStyle}"
                                                               Hint="{resx:Translate Password}"
                                    <Entry Text="{Binding Password}"
                                           FontSize="Medium" />

Above code in the previous versions was showing "eye" icon for the password visibility toggle but now it shows star icon? why?
I tested on Android device 9.0
using xamarin 4.1

Hi Emil,


Greetings from Syncfusion.


We are able to reproduce the reported issue at our end. You can resolve this issue by adding the below highlighted line in the OnCreate override method in the MainActivity.cs file in your Android project as a workaround.


Code Snippet:




protected override void OnCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)



            TabLayoutResource = Resource.Layout.Tabbar;

            ToolbarResource = Resource.Layout.Toolbar;




            Xamarin.Essentials.Platform.Init(this, savedInstanceState);

            global::Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init(this, savedInstanceState);

            LoadApplication(new App());




We have attached the sample for your reference. Please download it from the following location.
