Android :: Hide Views When The Soft Keyboard Is Up?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a pretty standard search edit widget on top / search results list widget on bottom activity in my app. Below the results list widget I also have my view for ads. When the soft keyboard is brought up in this activity, I'd like to hide the view the ads are in because they consume too much screen space. I tried making that view android:isScrollContainer="true" but that had no effect.

So the question is, how can I ensure that certain views will be hidden when the soft keyboard is brought up?

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 : Way To Hide Soft Keyboard?

Oct 4, 2010

I need to be able to hide the soft keyboard in response to clicking a button. I have seen numerous posts on this subject and it seems that the solution is to use the InputMethodManager, but I have been unable to get it to work for me.

Android :: Pushing Up Views Above Soft Keyboard

May 20, 2010

I am trying to push up the views in my activity whenever a soft keyboard comes up. I have been partially successful in this, except that certain views remain hidden behind the soft keyboard.

My XML looks like the below. I am specifying the last RelativeLayout RL3 containing buttons with the attribute: android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" so that they stay above the soft keyboard when it comes up. However. the scrollview SV1 which is above the last RelativeLayout RL3 is not scrolling up completely and so a part of the scroll view remains hidden behind the soft keyboard. I have tried to set paddingBottom=70px but that still does not make the scroll view go up.

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

Android :: Hide Soft Keyboard On Done Keypress?

Aug 5, 2010

I am struggling with the done button on the soft keyboard. I can't get the soft keyboard Done keypress to hide the keyboard. From another button, it works perfectly with imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0);
but the onKeyListener does not function the way I want. When I hit the editText, the soft keyboard shows up and its content is cleared from characters. The main.xml:

<EditText android:id="@+id/answer"
android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal" android:textSize="36px"
android:inputType="phone" android:minWidth="60dp" android:maxWidth="60dp" />

The Java file:
private EditText editText;...
editText = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.answer);
editText.setOnClickListener(onKeyboard);
editText.setOnKeyListener(onSoftKeyboardDonePress); ...
// method not working: private View.OnKeyListener onSoftKeyboardDonePress=new View.OnKeyListener() { public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
if (event.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.FLAG_EDITOR_ACTION) {
// code to hide the soft keyboard
imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService( Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0); }
return false; } };
private View.OnClickListener onKeyboard=new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) { editText.setText(""); } };

The working method using a button (in the same java file):
private View.OnClickListener onDone=new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) { ....
// code to hide the soft keyboard
imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService( Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0); } };
When I press key no "9" the keyboard hides.

Android :: Close/hide The Soft Keyboard

Jul 10, 2009

I'm having an EditText and a Button in my layout. After writing inside the edit field and clicking on the Button, I want to hide the virtual keyboard. I guess there should be a simple, one- or two-liner to make this happen. Where can I find an example of it?

Android :: Hide Soft Keyboard Not Working

May 9, 2010

I'm developing on the Droid Incredible (and have tested on a 1.5 AVD Emulator as well), and one of the tabs in my tab widget consists of a listview and a row with an EditText and a Send button (for a chat feature). I am using the following to close the soft keyboard once I click Send, but it's not working. This is identical to code I've found elsewhere that people have upvoted as correct.

See anything I'm missing?

CODE:.......

I also tried changing the flag to 0. No luck. Anyone know what's up? Just realized I was originally using hideSoftInputFromInputMethod() instead of hideSoftInputFromWindow(). Changing it didn't make it work though...

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 :: Hide Soft Keyboard On Android After Clicking Outside EditText

Nov 12, 2010

Everyone knows that to hide a keyboard you need to implement:

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

But the big deal here is how to hide the keyboard when the user touches or selects any other place that is not an EditBox or the softKeyboard?

I tryied to use the onTouchEvent on my parent Activity but that only works if user touches outside any other view and there is no scrollview.

I tryed to implement a touch, click, focus listener without any success.

I even tryed to implement my own scrollview to intercept touch events but i can only get the coordinates of the event and not the view clicked.

Is there a standard way to do this? in iPhone it was really easy.

Android :: Android - EditText And Button - When Click Button - Unfocus EditText And Hide Soft Keyboard

Jun 24, 2010

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

I have this at the top of my application. When the application starts, the EditText is orange highlighted and has a cursor in it; when the EditText is tapped, the soft keyboard pops up. The user uses it to type into the EditText.

However, when they click the Button, my onClick method fires and does everything it's supposed to, however the soft keyboard stays on screen and the EditText is still highlighted with its cursor.

I also have, at the top of the Button onclick: findViewById(R.id.name).clearFocus();

In spite of this, the EditText does not seem to clear its focus. How do I make the button actually act as if it is submitting the form?

Also, I do not transition to a different Activity on the click of the Button. I suppose that is the typical case, and probably the reason why they don't bother hiding the keyboard. However I want to keep the search box and button at the top of the screen, so I just dynamically fill and add views to the screen when the Button is pressed. How can I achieve my desired behavior?

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?

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?

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 :: Why Might Soft Keyboard Not Pop Up?

Nov 12, 2010

I have an EditText control that does not pop up the soft keyboard when the user touches it. 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.

Android :: Hide The Virtual Keyboard

Apr 28, 2009

Using the 1.5 SDK. I have an application with a TabActivity and when I change from one tab with edit fields to another that does not need any user input I would like the virtual keyboard to be hidden. I've tried setting android:windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysHidden" on the manifest for the activity that doesn't need user input but it didn't work (maybe because the activity is triggered by a TabActivity).

I've found the method hideSoftInputMethod(IBinder, int) in the InputMethodManager class but I don't know how to get the IBinder object that this method needs.

How do I get that IBinder object? Are there other ways to hide the soft keyboard?

It would be even better if I could make the soft keyboard automatically hide when an EditText loses focus.

Android :: Soft-keyboard Is Not Being Closed

Jun 28, 2010

I've got a problem with my application in that the soft-keyboard is not being closed unless the user pushes the "back" button.I use several layouts which I load using the setContentView method of the application. Some layouts contain multiple EditText fields. The soft-keyboard pops up correctly when the entry boxes are being clicked, but never gets dismissed, even after I switch to a new layout using setContentView (instigated by on-screen push buttons).I found a way of apparently removing the keyboard using the "InputManager" class but how exactly does that work if I don't know which entry field opened/currently owns the keyboard?Is there a way of possibly invalidating a whole layout which would perhaps cause all resources (and hopefully the keyboard) to be cleared? As said before, I currently just use setContentView to load the next screen.

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.

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.
