Keyboard pops up on Android

I have an app that is pulling from a SPO Contact List. It is very basic. One screen shows all the contacts and you can dive deeper to the DetailScreen to see more information on that contact. Each time I click on the arrow to view more information I am taken to the Detail screen and it brings up my keyboard. There is nothing to edit on this screen. If i try and type there is no result. It just brings up my keyboard for no reason. The one repeatable behaivor that I have noticed is if I view the contact details, back out and look at that same contact the keyboard doesn't pop up the second time. Almost like it was cached??, I'm not sure. I have set every TabIndex to -1 but don't know what is triggering my keyboard when I view the details of an item. keyboard.png

Thanks for clarifying that! with that information I went into my data fields and switched my 2 combo boxes from View Selection to View Lookup and that fixed the issue! I am not sure if there is other ramifications, but I also don't have any users editing these fields so I might not have any side effects.

Hello @joshprokupek

Thank you for reporting this. I can confirm that this is an issue in the current release. It looks like if the form has at least one ComboBox control, it causes the keyboard to popup on mobile devices. A form with no ComboBox controls does not have this problem.

That is a good workaround too. Using LookUp instead of ComboBox controls should work temporarily, until we fix the ComboBox issue. Please note however that the LookUp control is considered a "legacy" control and it may not support all the latest functionality. 

Then make it so I don't need a workaround 😉

I am having the same issue and if an update is going to fix it, then I don't really want to change my combo box control to a look up control.  Please keep us posted on when an update to fix this might be available.
