Is there a way to get the soft keyboard to show up when setting a GridComboBoxColumn's IsEditableMode = true?
I assumed it would function the same as the SfComboBox Control but nothing I change will make it show up.

Hi Marcus Lee, 

Based on the given information, your requirement of “Showing keyboard when edit the GridComboBoxColumn with IsEditableMode” is achieved by customizing the GridCellComboBoxRenderer. In Xamarin.Forms.Android platform, From sample, we have manually called keyboard when GridComboBox column is in edit mode, and in Xamarin.Forms.iOS platform, by default keyboard has shown when GridComboBox column enter in to edit mode.  Kindly find the below code example and sample for further reference.

Code example :



public MainPage() 
        this.dataGrid.CellRenderers.Add("ComboBox", new CustomComboBox()); 
public class CustomComboBox : GridCellComboBoxRenderer 
        public override bool BeginEdit(RowColumnIndex rowColumnIndex, CellElement cellElement, GridColumn column, object rowData) 
            return base.BeginEdit(rowColumnIndex, cellElement, column, rowData);
