Can you elaborate on plans for the Entry control?

I looked at the Entry class properties in the API doc and didn't see any mention of setting a property to drive which keyboard shows up (ie email address, numeric only, etc.). Is this in the works?

I'd also love to know if there's any near-term intention of allowing for validation on entry? Maybe a regex expression you could set and then a highlight color for when it fails?

If these features aren't coming any time soon then I might start to look for ways I could build this myself... but was hoping to avoid the need ; )

Overall, this is a fantastic first release!

    Entry.Keyboard is the property you're looking for. Look, the future is here today !

  • @StephaneDelcroix‌ Thanks! I went back to look at the API document again to see how I missed this. I see now that it is an inherited property of the parent InputView class.

    So, any plans for a validation construct or is it a "roll your own" situation?
