Textbox getting focus while navigating from one page to another RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Im developing an application in which there are two pages, Page 1 and Page 2. Page 2 has a textbox positioned to the bottom of the screen above appbar. When I navigate from page 2 to page 1, the keyboard blinks for a second and disappearsand it happens for everytime. I'm using the same navigation helper class provided with template and nothing modified. Any help to solve this problem?

  • Hi MohanRajK,

    Looks like your TextBox get automatically focus while from Page 1 to Page 2.

    I would like to know if you have other controls on Page 2 accept focus? And how did you set the TextBox TabIndex property. I would also like to see a repro so that I can know more about current status.

    Anyway, to disable the automatically setting focus on TextBox, you could have following options:

    1, Set focus on other controls while navigating to Page2.

    2, Modify the TabIndex value.

    3, Disable that TextBox, after the navigation finished, enable it.
