I have a sideview that I am using to accept input. The view contains on a backButton and a TextEntryButton. I would like the TextEntryButton to have focus and the keyboard opened when the view is started. I put startFocused: true on the TextEntryButton and on the updateView function this.controls.myEntryButton.focus() Still the back button has focus and the keyboard is not displayed. Is this possible to have the keyboard automatically opened when displayed?
