How to enter special characters(@, # etc) using Computer's keyboard when using simulator ?



      There is a screen in my app in which a TextField control is being created to store the email address. I am not able to enter characters like '@', '#' etc using my computer's keyboard.


Also I am able to enter alphabets, numbers, space etc in the TextField using my computer's keyboard.


Is there any way to enter special characters using my computer's keyboard as a TextField for email address without '@' is impossible.


Also when I am setting a string representing emailaddress to this TextField, special characters appear as they are. Right now I am doing this way using only single email address set as default.

Always Success
