Incorrect Keyboard shown for InputScope = EmailSmtpAddress after PasswordBox focus RRS feed

  • Question

  • If focus is on a PasswordBox and then moves to a TextBox with InputScope="EmailSmtpAddress", the keyboard for the TextBox will be the standard keyboard instead of the email keyboard.

    <TextBox InputScope="EmailSmtpAddress"/>

    Are there any workarounds for this?

  • Are you closing and reopening the keyboard

    or just changing focus with it open?

    The app doesn't have any control over the keyboard so there's not much you can do to work around this programmatically, but you may try futzing with the focus. This may cause flicker and the cure could end up worse than the disease though.

  • I am just changing the focus by touching the screen (no programmatic focus changes or anything). Sounds like it is probably just best to wait until it gets fixed in the framework.
