XAML Values

inputScopeName

A named constant of the InputScopeNameValue enumeration, such as Number.

Property value

Type: InputScope

The input scope, which provides a hint at the type of text input expected by the control.

Remarks

The input scope provides a hint at the type of text input expected by the control. Various elements of the system can respond to the hint provided by the input scope and provide a specialized UI for the input type. For example, the soft keyboard might show a number pad for text input when the control has its InputScope set to Number.

The control might also interpret the data being entered differently (typically for East Asian related input scopes). The input scope does not perform any validation, and does not prevent the user from providing any input through a hardware keyboard or other input device.
