Element focus change on Android

Whenever an element receives focus, it should not automatically trigger an event which changes context. Example of changing context include, but are not limited to: automatically submitting data, opening a new screen or moving to another element. Focus should only be moved deliberately by the user.

On Android, you can use an OnFocusChangeListener to listen to focus changes. The onFocusChange method is called when the element receives focus.

Be careful when using the onFocusChange method: do not trigger any context change because they might confuse users.

webView.setOnFocusChangeListener { view, focused ->
    if (focused) {
        // Do not change context
