It's possible to add Tap gesture to the Entry?
This code works for Label but doesn't work for Entry:

var tapEntryRecognizer = new TapGestureRecognizer(); 
tapFocusEntryRecognizer.Tapped += async (s, e) => { Console.WriteLine("tapped"); }; 
tapEntry.GestureRecognizers.Add(tapFocusEntryRecognizer);

    Hello,​

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

    You can use Focused event to achieve it

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/xamarin.forms.visualelement.focused?view=xamarin-forms

       myEntry.Focused += async (s, e) => {   
         
       //add you code  
         
       };  
    

    Best Regards,

    Leon Lu
