Difference for Entry IsPassword and Keyboard=Numeric (Android)

Gigex42Gigex42 USMember ✭✭✭

Hello

my login page has two entries.
Both of them are Keyboard="Numeric"

The second one has additionally IsPassword="True"

On my second entry the keyboard only shows numbers.
But on the first one without IsPassword, it also shows "- + , * /" etc.

Im Testing on a tablet. Maybe the layout on a phone is different.

    The forms Entry should handle many different input types
    android:inputType="number" : Basic numeric keyboard
    android:inputType="textPassword|number" : Numeric password

    I expect what you're seeing is the keyboards difference between the two input types.
    Each Android keyboard implementation should handle it differently.

    You haven't actually said what you are trying to solve.

    Do you want a numeric keyboard without "- + , * /" etc.
    Do you want a password keyboard with "- + , * /" etc.
    Or something else?

    You are absolutly right. My fault.

    I just want both entries with only the numbers.
    But the second one should be a password box.
