Android :: Allow Only Decimal Numeric Input / Use Phone Soft Keyboard?

Apr 21, 2010

I am trying to do something that I thought would be simple, yet I still haven't found the right approach. I have a Edit Text field that should only accept unsigned decimal entries. Using android:input Type="number Decimal" in my layout xml file achieves this, however the soft keyboard that is raised with this input Type is the standard keyboard but just uses the alternate view with the number row on top. This is far from ideal for a field that only allows numbers. A much better soft keyboard for numeric entry is the "phone" one. It has all of the numbers and a decimal. Perfect!! Well, except that for the life of me I cannot figure out how to use both the phone keyboard AND allow only numeric entry. I've tried everything I can think of but if I use the phone soft keyboard then the input field also allows things like "(" and any of the other symbols available on that keyboard. Is there any way to get the nice big numeric buttons of the phone keyboard along with only allowing decimal entry?

Android :: Numeric-only Soft Keyboard

Oct 20, 2009

How can I set numeric-only soft keyboard option for a text field? When I set the input-type to "number" it brings a soft keyboard which is actually a alpha-numeric one but already switched to numeric mode. What I want is a pure numeric soft keyboard with big numbers (no alphabets at all). I've already seen this in other applications and but don't know how to do it.

Jul 9, 2010

I am developing an android application where we are using WebView to display Web page being served from Web Server. Everything is working fine except with the problem that when i am using the soft keyboard and switched to numeric key entry and move from first field to next field, the keyboard layout automatically changed to alphanumeric.

Is there any way using which i can pull up virtual keyboard in numeric mode only when i need to enter numbers only?

Android :: Soft Keyboard - New Input Framework

May 10, 2009

I have a class that extends ImageView, which also handles keyboard input, currently via OnKeyListener, which works great with the 1.1 sdk, but how do I port this to the 1.5 sdk? How do I get the soft keyboard to load for this View? I haven't found a ton of documentation regarding the new input framework.

Android :: Input Method Manager - Keyboard (virtual / Soft)

Oct 8, 2009

Inside TextView.java, I have the following code.

InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getContext ().getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE); Log.d("tag", " fullscreenmode test: " + imm.isFullscreenMode());

and also, InputMethodManager imm = InputMethodManager.peekInstance(); Log.d("tag", imm.isFullscreenMode());

My phone is in landscape mode. My application has an EditText. My keyboard(virtual/soft) is not visible. I expect the above codes (written inside TextView.java) to print false. But it prints true. How is that possible?

Android :: How To Know Whether SIP (Soft Input Panel - Keyboard View) Is Showing - Not?

Apr 27, 2009

I wonder it is possible to know whether SIP is showing to user or not. A user application(Activity) can show or hide the Soft Input through the Input Method Manager. There is some APIs to handle the SIP. But I can't find API to know status of SIP(it is on showing or hiding).

When SIP is showing to user. It disturbs the UI of the Activity. So Activity should know about the information related with upper case. How can I know that?

Android :: Input Fields / Converting Text To Numeric

Nov 4, 2010

I have an app I am working on that does some math on a few variables and outputs the answer. Well that's the plan anyway. Being a total n00b at Android & Java I am not sure of a couple of things.1) I have created text fields in the layout file for user to enter values. Instead of text fields should I use numerical value fields, if such a thing exists? 2) How can you convert from a text field to a numerical value and back again?

Android :: Display A Numeric Keypad On Activity Without An Input Area

Oct 21, 2010

I use the following code to pop up the soft input keyboard in my Activity
InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE); imm.getInputMethodList(); imm.toggleSoftInput(InputMethodManager.SHOW_FORCED, 0); This displays the alphabetic keyboard. But I want to display the numeric keyboard. Please note I know that using setInputType() works when used with an Edittext or a TextView but I want to be able to display the keyboard without an input area such as an Edit Text and simply listen to the key presses on the keyboard. Can anyone confirm whether this is possible and if so how can it be achieved?

Android :: Open Numeric Keypad / Input Multiple Numbers?

Nov 9, 2010

I am making a math program that reads in numbers from an edit text box, and creates / LU factors a matrix. When a user clicks into this field, the regular keyboard shows. It would be easier for the user if it were a numeric keyboard. When I use android:input Style="number" the amount of numbers allowed to be entered into the field is 1. How do I bring up the numeric keyboard without limiting the ability to enter multiple numbers?

Android :: Mobile Device That An HTML Input Field Numeric Only?

Aug 31, 2010

I've been doing some usability testing on a website I'm developing, using an Android phone and an iPod touch. In both cases, when entering a numeric field (time, distance in metres, etc) I have to take a manual step to change the keyboard layout to show digits. As the app will only accept numeric values in the text box, I'd like to save the user the inconvenience and tell the device "switch to the number pad for this input".

Android :: Speech Recognition - Limit To Match Numeric Input

Nov 1, 2009

I want to use the SR api to handle commands in my application. I know at any given point in my application what the valid commands would be at that point so would like to limit the results that the SR is matched against. For example, if the only valid commands were "Yes" or "No" I would like to be able to restrict the SR to only try and match against those two words. Otherwise on full vocabulary I get "Snow" and other false words. Limiting the vocabulary should make matching 90%+ accurate on limited words. Is this possible? Also, can I limit the SR to only match numeric for number input only? The internal dialer seems to be able to do this sort of this, so can I?

HTC Hero :: Soft Keyboard Does Not Go Into Landscape Mode When Phone Is Orientated

Feb 18, 2010

I would've been happy as a passive forum user and keeping up with other's posts but my Hero has recently developed a problem, prompting me to sign up and get some advice from you guys who have more experience.

Basically in the last couple of days my soft keyboard has randomly decided to change how it displays and works! 3 main problems:

- sometimes soft keyboard does not go into landscape mode when phone is orientated (seen suggestions on here of calibrating keyboard and installing bubble and running the bubble clibration: tried both of these but has not solved problem).

- when phone does decide to let me in landscape mode no text is displayed as you type....only when you switch back to portrait do you see what you have typed

- when in text message mode the predictive text box has moved and is now being overlayed on the text message body, so basically i cannot see what i am typing! (the predictive text box used to be displayed above the text message body). This problem is the most annoying out of the two!

Android :: How To Develop A Soft Keyboard - HTTP Connections To Synchronize Keyboard Data With A Cloud DB And Other Phones

Aug 13, 2010

I would like to play around with some ideas and develop a soft keyboard for Android to replace the default one.

Is there any general information about soft keyboard development for Android out there?

Any best practices or guidelines?

Can I do with my keyboard application pretty much anything I could do with a normal Android application?
Can I do HTTP connections to synchronize keyboard data with a cloud DB and other phones I have?
Can I open other windows/screens from a key press, e.g. to display a custom input interface different to a normal QWERTY one. If that doesn't work, can I use a pop-up dialog instead?

Android :: Hide Soft Keyboard On Activity Without Any Keyboard Operations

Oct 13, 2010

I have a tabbed view with one Activity per tab, and when I switch from the first tab, which has a TextView, to the second tab, which only shows a clickable list, the soft keyboard is still there. I want it to go away.

I tried this:

CODE:.............

But this does not work, because there is no relevant view to provide, as there is no View on the screen that takes keyboard input.

Android : How To Hide Soft Input Like Using BACK Buton?

Jul 11, 2009

In my app I have AutoCompleteTextView and "search" button. When user clicks "enter" or "search" an Intent is fired and new Activity is started. But in that "new" Activity SoftInput should be invisible, so I make ((InputMethodManager)getSystemService (INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE)).hideSoftInputFromWindow(this.getCurrentFocus ().getWindowToken(), InputMethodManager.HIDE_NOT_ALWAYS); But when user clicks BACK and returns to activity with form he is unable to show soft input back by touching AutoCompleteTextView. He mus use trackball to select "search" button and than touch ACTextView. Bud when he is in "form" activity first time, shows soft input by touching AutoCompleteTextView and presses BACK button he is able to show soft Input by touching field. How can I hide soft input "correctly" (so it can be shwed back in intuitive way?) or hide it like BACK button does?

Motorola Droid :: Numeric Keyboard For Texting?

Jan 20, 2010

I have had a slider phone for years and could text super fast. Then I switched to an Eris where I had the option of using the qwerty keyboard on landscape OR I could hold it upright and use the numeric keyboard with T9 like I did on my slider. I always held it upright and was very happy. I was having reception issues with my eris so I traded it for a Moto Droid. Is there an option for the numeric type of keyboard becuase it takes me friggin forever to type a text.

Android :: Default Adjust For Window Soft Input Mode

May 9, 2009

I got confused about whether the default value for android:windowSoftInputMode[1] was adjustResize or adjustPan and thought I might be able to help someone avoid similar confusion. The "Updating Applications for On-screen Input Methods" blog post[2] states that pan and scan is the default mode because it is the safest for existing applications and resize is often the preferred screen layout. But I believe it's a little more complicated than that.

If the outermost View in a layout is a ScrollView then it appears that the default is actually adjustResize. And this makes sense: if the View lives inside a ScrollView then it probably knows how to resize itself. I'm mostly basing this statement on trial and error, so it would be great if someone could confirm or correct me. Maybe this should be mentioned in the documentation at [1]? Or state that it is recommended that applications specify one or the other, rather than depending on the default?

Android :: Window Soft Input Mode Not Working Properly With ListView

Nov 9, 2010

I have a layout with a ListView that contains EditText objects that can requestFocus() when the user chooses to edit the list item. I make sure to call setSelection() on the ListView when this happens, and then have the EditText request focus and then use InputMethodManager.showSoftInput to show the soft keyboard. However, when this happens, the list view is being resized correctly, but the selected list item remains below the fold and the user has to scroll up. This is working properly on 2.2, but is failing on 2.1. Any ideas for making sure the list selection remains visible?

Android :: Custom Dialog Displayed On Soft Input (User Info ID)

May 18, 2009

I have a custom dialog displayed to input user info (ID). This appears on top of an activity with an 'Done' button, however when the edittext is selected and the soft keyboard appears, the keyboard obscures the Done button at the bottom of the dialog. The documentation / blog posts are a little dry on info specifically for dialogs, what do I need to include to get the dialog to pan up or otherwise?

General :: MK802 Mini PC - Disable Soft Keyboard Hiding With USB Keyboard Available?

Jun 22, 2012

I'm using an MK802 mini PC. I don't have a USB keyboard yet.

When I plug in a wired USB mouse, I can use that to click on the on screen soft keyboard.

But when I plug in the wireless dongle for a USB mouse, the Android soft keyboard doesn't show anymore (I guess this is because the wireless dongle supports both keyboard and mouse, and tells Android a hardware keyboard is available, so Android doesn't show the soft keyboard).

Any way to ignore this and always show the soft keyboard? Or another keyboard I can download which will always show?

Android :: Android Soft Keyboard - Manipulate Views On Keyboard On - Off

Aug 4, 2010

I have a layout which has one large EditText view at the top + a bunch of buttons at the bottom. The EditText is made to shrink and expand when the ime is activated/deactivated by using adjust_resize. The buttons at the bottom are pushed up above the ime.

I would like to hide these buttons when the ime displays, to provide enough space for the EditText view.

I have so far tried the following:

subclassed EditText and provided the activity the option to register a callback on the view's OnSizeChanged.
Used this callback to change the visibility of the buttons (actually the layout container) to GONE.

This work OK and does hide the buttons when the ime pops up. However, the EditText does not expand into the new available space. Furthermore, when the ime is disposed off, the EditText field is now bigger than it was originally, pushing (the now showing) buttons outside the screen.

I should also add that when typing the first letter into the view, and the ime displays the word options, the screen is redrawn and the EditText fills the vacant space. how to get this to work? Or even better, is there a simpler solution to my requirement? In my view, scrolling is not a good option.

Android :: Why Might Soft Keyboard Not Pop Up?

The thing is, that I have a number of other EditText controls elsewhere in my application that all work fine, and I cannot see anything really different about this one.The code is a bit complex to post here, but I was wondering if anyone knows of any reasons why the soft keyboard would not appear in some cases.
