    Hey all,

    I have a series of forms with TextFields, and I want to hide the keyboard when the user taps outside of them. I think this is a pretty common thing to do in iOS apps, but I have no idea how to accomplish this in NativeScript. Can someone help me out?

    Thanks,
    TJ

    Hi,

    In fact, this is not so easy in iOS as it is in Android. We have still not thought of a way to do this from the control instance, i.e. to tell the TextField to hide the keyboard when the user taps outside. Here is one thing I found out, but it involves writing platform-specific code:

    I am currently trying to find a way to achieve this without forcing the developer to write platform-specific code. I will let you know when I invent something.

    Yeah, I remember this being a white hot pain on iOS. Looking forward to an easier way to do this...
