using XRelativeLayout = Xamarin.Forms.RelativeLayout;
I want to create an editor, that (on focus) expands a view holding buttons.
Clicking a button should add text to the editor, but not make the expanding view disapper!
This is how I set it up the hierachy:
I have an
XRelativeLayout (1), that holds an
Editor (2) and an
XRelativeLayout (3). The child
XRelativeLayout (3) holds the buttons (4).
XRelativeLayout is as big as the editor.
XRelativeLayout is placed underneath the editor (hence is outside of the parent
Touch events are therefore not registered by the child
How would I achieve this? (for Android and iOS). Any ideas for any of the platforms?
Why am I doing it like this? Because I want the inner relative layout overlap other Views in the page hierachy, without demanding space.
