Bug Description

If you click on change title before changing the time of an appointment you get into a position where the time/date changer is hidden behind the keyboard.

1. Open the calendar app
2. Create a new appointment
3. Click on the title
4. wait for the keyboard to pop up
5. Click on the time or date

I expect the time/date to get focus, the cursor to leave the title text field and the keyboard be dropped.

The title still displays the cursor, the date or time field it highlighted white but the adjuster is not visible because the text filed has the cursor and so the keyboard remains displayed.

Hi ,

I believe it should also happen , when you are in Location Textbox and you have to change the Date Time , it should behave what you have mention , could you please confirm this scenario as well?

Yes, same happens with location.

Any text field steals focus and keeps it I only picked title as it is the first and most accessible. :)

Here's what it looks like. I tapped the date after the event appeared.

I guess we can hide keyboard when we are trying to launch TimePicker. That should solve the issue.

I ran into this too and I think the severity of this should be at least "high" because as it is right now its impossible to create a new event entry unless you know that you need to hide the keyboard first (which is highly non-obvious) before clicking into the time picker. I will set to "high" (but you are of course free to downgrade if you disagree with me on this :)
