Solvedreact native google places autocomplete Not working with KeyboardAwareScrollView

I'm currently using KeyboardAwareScrollView with react-native-google-places-autocomplete and only when the auto-complete component is within KeyboardAwareScrollView, the drop-down suggested addresses from Google does not respond to presses. When the aut0-complete component is without KeyboardAwareScrollView, the component works as expected.

The expected behavior is that when the suggested addresses are clicked, the clicked addresses can be used in the onPress property of react-native-google-places-autocomplete, but when the component is placed within KeyboardAwareScrollView, the suggested list disappears as soon as the list is clicked, and no addresses are selected or retrieved.

const CreatePost = ({ navigation }) => {
    const [animation] = useState(new Animated.Value(0))
    useEffect(() => {
        Keyboard.addListener('keyboardWillShow', keyboardWillShow)
        Keyboard.addListener('keyboardWillHide', keyboardWillHide)
        return () => {
            Keyboard.removeListener()
        }
    }, [])

    const keyboardWillShow = e => {
        Animated.timing(animation, {
            duration: e.duration,
            toValue: 1,
        }).start()
    }

    const keyboardWillHide = e => {
        Animated.timing(animation, {
            duration: e.duration,
            toValue: 0,
        }).start()
    }

    const opacityInterpolate = animation.interpolate({
        inputRange: [0, 1],
        outputRange: [1, 0]
    })

    const photoStyles = {
        opacity: opacityInterpolate
    }

    const submitHandler = async (value, action) => {}

    return (
        <KeyboardAwareScrollView>
            <Form submitHandler={submitHandler} />
        </KeyboardAwareScrollView>

    )
}

I placed react-native-google-places-autocomplete within Formik:

const Form = ({
    submitHandler,
}) => {
const [addressAnimation] = useState(new Animated.Value(0))
const [addressHeight, setAddressHeight] = useState()
const yCoordinate = heightPosition - addressHeight

const onFocusAddressAutoComplete = () => {
    // onFocus Animation
}
const onBlurAddressAutoComplete = () => {
    // onBlur Animation
}

const translateInterpolate = addressAnimation.interpolate({
    inputRange: [0, 1],
    outputRange: [0, !!yCoordinate && yCoordinate],
    extrapolate: "clamp",
})

const addressStyle = {
    transform: [
        {
            translateY: translateInterpolate
        }
    ]
}

const onFocusProps = () => {
    setHideList(true)
    onFocusAddressAutoComplete()
}

const onBlurProps = (param, callback) => {
    callback(param)
    onBlurAddressAutoComplete()
    setHideList(false)
}

return (
    <View style={styles.container} >
        <Formik
            initialValues={initialValues}
            onSubmit={(value, action) => submitHandler(value, action)}
            validationSchema={yup.object().shape({
                address: yup
                    .string()
                    .min(5)
                    .required(),
            })}
        >
            {({

                errors,
                setFieldTouched,
                touched,
                isValid,
                handleSubmit,
                resetForm,

                            onLayout={e => {
                                if (addressHeight !== e.nativeEvent.layout.y) {
                                    setAddressHeight(e.nativeEvent.layout.y)
                                }
                            }}
                        >

                                    onChangeText={handleChange('address')}
                                    onFocus={onFocusProps}
                                />
                            </View>

@igibliss00 Have you tried to add keyboardShouldPersistTaps in all ancestor ScrollView?

<ScrollView keyboardShouldPersistTaps={'handled'}>
     <ScrollView keyboardShouldPersistTaps={'handled'}>
            <GooglePlacesAutocomplete ... >

Other Answers:

I still see the warning when I click the suggested places, and I have added keyboardShouldPersistTaps={'handled'} to the <ScrollView/>

It's still not working on android. I too have added keyboardShouldPersistTaps={'handled'} on the parent <ScrollView> component.
