Keyboard order on Xamarin

By adjusting the keyboard order, you can provide a great experience for users that control their device using a hardware keyboard.

Xamarin Forms supports changing the keyboard order through the TabIndex property. The default value is 0. The lower the value, the higher the priority.

The IsTabStop property can be used to exclude elements from tabbed navigation.

The code example below shows how exclude the label from receiving keyboard focus, and how to reach the save button before reaching the cancel button.

<Label Text="Appt" IsTabStop="True" />
<Button x:Name="cancelButton" TabIndex="20" />
<Button x:Name="saveButton" TabIndex="10"/>
