Password entry blocked by 'Strong Password' prompt

ITMAGEITMAGE USMember ✭✭

We have a password text field which while typing, iOS overlays a yellow coloured 'Strong Password' prompt rendering text entry unusable. This post outlines identical behaviour except that we are not using Xamarin Forms.

Any ideas?

    It depends on how you layout the controls.
    Every control in iOS has these priorities:

    Use it to determine which control needs to be stretched or compressed when the width of controls are all dynamically set.
    Besides, could you please share a sample here to specify your issues?

    Okay thank you for the reply. We were initially using a UITextField with SecureTextEntry property set - here is a screenshot of the issue:

    At this time though we have decided go the route some other apps have gone which is to clearly display the password on the screen by default while they create their account, but provide the user with a hide/show button should they decide that they rather mask it (btn simply sets SecureTextEntry property). When they do mask it, the issue doesn't appear to manifest, it's only when the UITextField is initially set to SecureTextEntry does it pose an issue.

    Thanks and if I have some time to revisit this I will post my findings here.

    Thanks for sharing this.
    And if you want us to help you do some investigation, you could post your small sample here.
