Hello David,

Indeed, the workaround with the Plain Keyboard does not work in all cases.  I understand this is a serious issue and we'll definitely take a look at it for some of the upcoming releases.  We'll update the feedback item as soon as there's any progress on it.

I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Hi,

I'm following this too, this is a security issue. Keyboard=plain does not hide suggestions on my Samsung Active Tab 2.

This is not a feature, password is displayed in clear in suggestions!

Hi David C.,

I am not able to replicate what you're reporting.  Here's an animated GIF of the code I shared at runtime on Android (notice autocomplete list is blank):

In the end, this is a OS/platform feature. Some platforms require user interaction (approval) before keyboard behavior is modified, while some custom keyboard completely ignore what the application is requesting. You may end up needing to write a custom renderer to set custom keyboard APIs when the RadEntry gets focus.

Further Assistance

If you're still having trouble, please open a new Support Ticket so we can investigate your specific scenario. Please include the following information:

  • The exact version of Telerik UI for Xamarin
  • The exact version of Xamarin.Forms
  • The target platform details (device, OS level, SDK level, etc)
  • The code for what you're using.

With this information, we can attempt to replicate the behavior on that platform and look into what options you have to handle it.

Hi David,

You can set the keyboard to Plain, this will not show suggestions.

<input:RadEntry IsPassword="True" Keyboard="Plain" />

In the meantime, if you don't want to set the Keyboard property, you can use a combination of techniques to automatically change it. One example would be to subclass the control and change the Keyboard value it when IsPassword is changed.

public class MyEntry : RadEntry
{
    protected override void OnPropertyChanged(string propertyName = null)
    {
        base.OnPropertyChanged(propertyName);

        if (propertyName == nameof(RadEntry.IsPassword))
        {
            this.Keyboard = this.IsPassword ? Keyboard.Plain : Keyboard.Default;
        }
    }
}

Note that even though this is marked as a Feature Request, it can be tracked in the same way a Bug report. Both of them are tied into the development's work items in the same manner. Click the "follow" button at the top and you'll be notified of status changes immediately.

I also found this issue with the dataform custom property and setting DataFormPasswordEditor. This also shows suggestions.
