Android :: EditText And Virtual Keyboard

Jun 22, 2009

I was fillding with EditText and handling of events, and I was wondering on a strange thing:

If you press some of the keys (for example forward slash '/') on the emulated physical keyboard, the keyevents are called as usual (onKeydown, the KeyListeners etc). If I click on the corresponding virtual key on the onscreen virtual keyboard, all these callbacks do not get called at all! This is strange, given that If I press other keys like alhpanumerical, the events are called.

Android :: Specifying Virtual Keyboard Type For EditText In XML

Aug 11, 2010

I'm creating a ListActivity. In each list item I have a View I've created which contains a RatingBar and an EditText. In the screenshot at the bottom, you can see the virtual keyboard contains a returnline key and no "Done" key. I would like to specify a different style of keyboard to use (and hopefully retain the spell checking bar). I would like my virtual keyboard to have a "Done" key instead of a return key. Can I set the style of virtual keyboard I'm wanting in the EditText's XML?

Android :: EditText Hidden When Virtual Keyboard Shown And SurfaceView Involved

Jun 4, 2010

I have a simple user interface: an EditText should be located below a SurfaceView. I use a RelativeLayout to arrange these two views. Now, when I tap on the EditText to open the virtual keyboard the SurfaceView slides up but the EditText is hidden and does not show the typed string. To reproduce, use the following layout XML code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<RelativeLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/RelativeLayout01"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:layout_width="fill_parent">

Android :: Virtual Keyboard - Full Slide-out Keyboard

Nov 9, 2008

I'm getting the G1 next weekend and am wondering how long until a virtual keyboard will be available. I really like the idea of having a full slide-out keyboard but I would also like a virtual one so if I'm not wanting to say much I can just use the virtual keyboard or if I'm in an area where it needs to be quiet I don't need to have the sound of the keyboard sliding open.

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 :: No Virtual Keyboard Available

He cannot use this functionality at all. He tried holding down the menu key(and so have I) but the keyboard does not appear. Without a keyboard, this app is dead on arrival.

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 :: Displaying Virtual Keyboard

I need help with showing the integrated virtual keyboard on-screen. I extended a View class and I implemented these two methods (most of it is just stub code; for now I only want to display the keyboard):

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

Where editor is an instance of my View. I noticed in the debugger that my onCreateInputConnection() is executed but after that the keyboard is not displayed on the screen. Using the TextView widtget and it's subclasses is not an option.

Android :: Virtual Keyboard - Resize All Popups Etc

May 22, 2009

We have got all our own edit boxes etc. so we call the virtual keyboard from SDK 1.5 in the followng way (when the use selects one of our edit/text boxes):

Context c = getApplicationContext(); InputMethodManager inputManager = (InputMethodManager) c.getSystemService( Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE ); inputManager.showSoftInput(ourCanvasInstance, 0);

This works fine and even populates our edit boxes automatically upon key entry, we can dismiss it by calling:

inputManager.toggleSoftInput(0, 0);

The problem we have now is that we need to know the size of the virtual keyboard so that we can resize all our popups etc to fit within the area of the screen that is not covered by the virtual keyboard. Is there anyway of getting the height of the default virtual keyboard? I have noticed that android.inputmethodservice.Keyboard has access to the height but I can't seem to find anyway to access this, does anyone happen to know any useful pointers to be able to access the height of the VK?

Android :: After Entry - How Virtual Qwerty Keyboard Go Away?

Feb 1, 2010

I've got a activity with one AutoCompleteTextView with associated 'doit' and 'clear' Buttons and a read-only TextView that displays the result of 'doit'. These results are being partially obscured by the QWERTY keyboard. I'm trying unsuccessfully to shift focus from the auto complete text view to the clear button (or the read only text view) thinking that as soon as the auto complete text view loses focus, the keyboard will go away.

So my question is really two questions:
1) Once I succeed in programmatically arranging for my auto complete text view to lose focus, will the keyboard go away?
2) Focus is stuck on my auto complete text view. I've setFocusable (true) on the clear button and the other read-only text view, and called requestFocus() from each (I've tried both). Also setText("") in the auto complete view. No love. Can I not set focus to a read-only textview or a Button?
