Android :: Remove Auto Focus / Keyboard Popup

May 23, 2010

I have a screen where the first field is an EditText, and it gains the focus at startup, also popups the numeric input type, which is very annoying. How can I make sure that when the activity is started the focus is not gained, and/or the input panel is not raised?

Android :: How To Remove Focus From Single EditText?

Oct 8, 2010

In my application I have a single EditText together with some TextViews, button and a spinner. My EditText receives focus since it is the only focusable view in this activity, I believe. My EditText shows with an orange border and cursor on the field. Now I would like to remove the focus from this field (I don't want the cursor and border to show). Is there a way to do this? I have been able to focus on the button by doing button.seFocusableInTouchMode() and button.requestFocus(). But this highlights the button and is obviously not what I want.

Android :: Next Focus And Soft Keyboard

Apr 24, 2009

I have a form that is working fine with the "Next" flow order when using the computer keyboard with emulator (and probably with the keyboard on the G1) but not with the SoftKeyboard with 1.5.Some fields indicate "Next" with this keyboard, some go to the correct field and others don't.Two of the fields are text and they only give a carriage return instead of "Next."My numeric fields give the proper "Next" key. Use of the SoftKeyboard is a little underdocumented so far (if there is a hidden doc online somewhere please provide me a link to it). There are also some added fields under 1.5 that I have asked about previously but received no answer.These appear to have something to do with the Soft Keyboard.Though these can be set programmatically I haven't seen the proper way to set these flags using XML. This field is the one that replaces "Numeric" which deprecated.

Android :: Multiple EditText Not Getting Focus - No Soft Keyboard?

Sep 2, 2009

The home screen of my Android application has three EditText views, meant to be used as three different search functions, each with a "Search" button. The app works perfectly on the device (G1) when using the trackball: I can move between the EditTexts with the trackball, all the events fire as expected, I can enter text using the physical keyboard in the selected EditText, Enter correctly submits the proper search, etc.

However, I can't switch between the EditText views using touches - only by using the trackball. Touches seem to be completely ignored by the EditText. Touches do fire for the buttons, but very hard - takes a lot of tries to make a touch register. In the simulator, clicking on any EditText does nothing - the first one always remains selected, and I never get a soft keyboard. This is all inside a TabHost - I've read there are some problems with that configuration, but it sounds like a slightly different issue (the EditText doesn't seem to lose focus - everything works perfectly with the trackball).

Android :: EditText Lose Focus When Keyboard Appears

Apr 28, 2010

I make ListView that has some items that has one EditText and one ImageButton. When touch the EditText in ListView's Item, Keyboard was appeared but EditText lose focus. What can I do for resolve this problem? I can use ScrollView instead of ListView by addView in ScrollView. And in ScrollView, when I touch the EditText, keyboard was appeared and EditText keep the focus. But I must optimize the list because the list may has many items. In ListView, I can optimize list in getView. But in ScrollVIew, there was not way to optimaize list. So, I must use ListView.

Android :: Virtual Keyboard Input Focus With Webviews

Mar 15, 2010

I'm having a very very strange problem with input and textarea html tags in a WebView. Basically they never seem to gain input focus with the virtual keybaord. which shows a single input box. There is now way just tapping around the screen to get it to accept input. Strangely, if I use my trackball on my G1 to select the field, I can eventually get focus and type in it. For trackball-less things like the N1, that doesn't help though.

Samsung Captivate :: Remove Clear Plastic Case

Jul 31, 2010

When I bought my Captivate at the AT&T store, they tossed in a free case, which they put on the phone before I could even hold it . This transparent Plastic thing is evil, by which I mean I can't get it off. I'm afraid to take a screwdriver to it because I don't want to risk scratching the phone (that was why I got the case in the first place). Does anyone have experience with "incipio" plastic case? Do you know how to get it off safely? Can I take it in the store and have them do it?

Android :: Show Soft Keyboard Automatically When Focus On EditText

I'm showing an input box using AlertDialog. The EditText inside the dialog itself is automatically focused when I call AlertDialog.show(), but the soft keyboard is not automatically shown. How do I make the soft keyboard automatically show when the dialog is shown? (and there is no physical/hardware keyboard). Similar to how when I press the Search button to invoke the global search, the soft keyboard is automatically shown.

Android :: EditView In ListView Row / Loose Focus When Soft Keyboard Shows

Nov 9, 2010

I have some EditViews in the rows of a ListView.This works just fine except when the soft keyboard raises and lowers.When I touch the EditView within the ListView with the soft keyboard down, focus jumps to the EditView, then the keyboard comes up, removes focus from the EditView and sets focus to the ListView, resulting in an odd user experience with the focus no-where visible.Touching the EditViews with the keyboard already showing works as you would expect.The problem seems to be with the soft keyboard lowering and raising and the ListView getting confused about where focus should be placed.

HTC Desire :: Can't Clear Keyboard Input On Contacts Screen

Oct 13, 2010

Cannot clear text typed on the Contacts (People) screen 'All' tab.I went to the contacts (People) screen, to the All tab.Without selecting any contact, I held down the Menu button. This brought up the keyboard. I thought this could be another way to search the contacts so I started typing.The Text appeared in a grey box over the keyboard. When I pressed the enter key on the keyboard nothing happened. The backspace key also does *not* erase any of the letters I've entered.When I pressed the keyboard away key, the keyboard disappears but the text in the grey box remains floating over my contacts list. I can tap on contacts underneath it but not interact with the box itself.If I hold down the menu key again, I get the keyboard back and can add more letters to the box but not remove any!If I go to one of the other tabs (Groups, Online directories, Call History) the box is hidden but it returns when I go back to the All tab.

Motorola Droid X :: Auto Focus - Click To Focus

Aug 29, 2010

I loved the camera on the Eris and the Incredible, not only did they have a whole lot more of a crisp high-res detail, the auto-focus absolutely rocked. With my droid x, I can be getting a little artsy and focus on an object with the crosshair but it'll take me 20 tries to get it to lock on, its insane, I know I'm not getting too close to my subject because it will definitely eventually focus on that object if I try over and over and over again. It's not just close ups that I find myself and my buddy with this issue either. macro shooting mode does not help. My buddie's droid X has the same exact behaviors. Eris and incredible just LOCKED ON first try with even very low contrast / detail subjects, on top of that, have a ton better camera GUI when it comes to "click to focus". I know this thing ain't no SLR but, blows me away of how terrible the camera performance is vs. the HTC android based devices. Ihink motorola will fix this? I know this thing ain't no SLR but it just blows me away how the HTC android devices camera performance (except for video) blows the Droid X away.

HTC Incredible :: Way To Remove Certain Keys From Keyboard?

May 2, 2010

I have a couple quick questions about the Sense keyboard on my Incredible.
1. I'm coming from an iPod Touch keyboard and have been continuously hitting the period that is next to the space bar. Does anyone know if there is any way to remove certain keys from the keyboard? I really don't need a period and comma right next to the space bar on the alpha side. I know it's nit picky, but I like having a bigger space bar. 2. I've noticed when logging into websites that require a Username and Password that I am having to remove the keyboard when I go from the Username field to the Password field. On my iPod there was a "Next" feature that would automatically advance the cursor. Am I missing something on the Incredible? Didn't see anything available for switching data fields.

HTC Wildfire : Remove Send - Discard - Save Buttons Above Keyboard?

Sep 13, 2010

GMail is almost unusable when composing a message - the Send and discard and Save buttons take up more room than you get space to type, resulting in just 3 or so lines of visible text. To make it worse, the typing font is massive.

Does anyone know how to...

1) Remove the stupid Send/Discard/Save buttons above the keyboard. Clicking the menu soft-key brings up those options anyway, meaning they literally are nothing but a waste of typing space

2) Change the font size, so we can see more text as we type. When reading a message, the font is much smaller and still very readable...

3) Change the keyboard to something shorter, gaining more room to see messages we composes

I got this phone to GMail with so this is pretty annoying.

Motorola Droid X :: APP - ROOT - Keyboard - Keyboard Manager - Dual Keyboard - Portrait - Landscape Switch

Nov 10, 2010

I tried it and it works so far.

Dev = ne0fhyk from XDA.

From the XDA forum: Link to app page = [APP][ROOT/Keyboard] Keyboard Manager - Dual keyboard: Portrait/landscape switch - xda-developers

Verbage:

Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation.
It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait).
As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.

Requirements:
- Rooted android device (app was tested on Samsung captivate 2.1)
- Root Explorer app, or similar app that allows you to edit the permissions of a file.

To install:
1- Download the app (KeyboardManager.apk) on your device sdcard.
2- Using Root Explorer, move the apk file to /system/app
3- Using Root Explorer, edit the file permissions like below:
-- User: 'Read/Write' checked
--Group: 'Read' checked
--Others: 'Read' checked
4- Exit Root Explorer

The app should be visible in your launcher as 'Keyboard Manager'

Update:
- Added option to disable notification icon
-' start on boot' feature is disabled because it's not yet complete and tested... Sorry for the confusion

Bugs:
-On certain applications (i.e: Messaging on Samsung Captivate), the input window occasionally freeze on orientation switch. Exiting the app, and resuming should fix it.

The app is still in development.

Is there a way to manually focus the camera other than physically moving the camera forward or backwards?

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 :: Newline Characters And Focus

Aug 17, 2010

Currently I have an edittext field that when the user presses enter it does mostly what I want it to, validate an IP Address format and inform the user if it is wrong. How do I make it so when the user presses enter it checks it like it is supposed to be does not enter the newline character?

Here is my code for it.
public boolean onEditorAction(TextView arg0, int arg1, KeyEvent arg2) {
if(validateIPaddress(m_etIPAddress.getText().toString())){
ConfigData.m_IPAddress = m_etIPAddress.getText().toString();
} else { showAlertDialog("Invalid IP Address
Example: 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0","Error: ");
m_etIPAddress.setText(ConfigData.m_IPAddress);
m_etIPAddress.requestFocus();
} return false;
}

Another problem I have is that in the false condition of the validation, that it will not bring up the soft keyboard to allow the user to reedit that text field. If the user clicks on another edit text the window gives it focus, and allows the user to edit the second text field while still maintaining the 'green outline' around the original edittext.

The EditText still creates a newline. I tried calling that when I create the EditText and it shows the dialog then inserts a newline character at the beginning which is weird because the
m_etIPAddress.setText(ConfigData.m_IPAddress);
Should automatically overwrite anything in that field to the static IP saved within ConfigData. (my settings class) and I think the focus might work, the problem is that after requestFocus, that EditText shows it has focus but is unresponsive. I can click on other EditText's and modify them, while it still shows the focus outline on the IP EditText. If I click on the IP EditText it doesn't actually do anything. Its kind of strange.
