I'm developing a XF app that takes input from a bluetooth barcode scanner (=external keyboard) and validates the barcode. For now I work with an Entry element and validate the barcode in the 'Completed' event. This works fine, but one of the major drawbacks is that the Entry must have focus at all times.
So I was thinking to implement a DependencyService that listens for keyboard input. But I have no idea how to do that on Android, iOS and WP.
Is there anybody who knows how to capture keyboard input on these platforms, but without using an Entry control?
