    I saw in a previous post that you could only remove the keyboard by pressing the "Done" key.

    Even with the "Force Done" ticked on the TextField in the designer, my keyboard doesn't have a "Done", "Return" or "Exit Key". I have to press the Back button on the device to remove the keyboard, then press an "OK/Accept" button on the screen to accept the input.

    Could there be a setting on the keyboard - I'm using SwiftKey board

    You can use the IME library to hide the keyboard. Though the keyboard should show a "done" button if you set Force Done to true.

    Thanks Erel, I've 3 keyboards on my phone and only the stock standard vanilla version shows the "Done" Key but it doesn't work like an enter key.

    I'll try the IME library later
