[FIXED] Xamarin Forms iOS IsSpellCheckEnabled not working


I want to DISABLE spell check for an Entry item. I set this to False in the XAML — I also set it to false in the code behind when I observed this didn’t work as expected on iOS.

Bottom line: It doesn’t appear to work on iOS. When I enter something iOS thinks is incorrect, it corrects it.

Does anyone have any info that might help me?


Here is what the code behind looks like (for people like Jason):

myTxt.IsSpellCheckEnabled = false;

SOLUTION UPDATE (Thanks to Jason):
The following is also required…

myTxt.IsTextPredictionEnabled = false;


be sure to set IsTextPredictionEnabled = false too
