Android :: Soft Keyboard On Activity Startup

Jan 12, 2010

I am struggling trying to have the soft keyboard appear in a search screen and from the looks of numerous pleas on various forums, I am not the only one. I have tried many variants, culling from the byzantine attempts of those others.

InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService
(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE); imm.showSoftInput (query, 0);
(for 0, substitute InputMethodManager.SHOW_FORCED or InputMethodManager.SHOW_IMPLICIT.)

The problem seems to be that showSoftInput doesn't work from onCreate. This is a very common need. Surely there is a reasonable solution to this problem, or is it botched here?

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 :: Soft Keyboard Appears When Activity Starts

Aug 13, 2010

I have an activity which loads a TableLayout. This is made up of TextView and EditView fields. When I run my app within the emulator the layout appears correctly (WITHOUT the soft keyboard appearing). When I run the app from a device (HTC Evo) and enter the activity the soft keyboard ALWAYS appears. I tried doing an OnFocusChange() for the first field in the layout and then doing:

InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE); imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(tvIndications.getWindowToken(), 0);

It doesn't work. The soft keyboard always appears.

Android :: Show Soft Keyboard When Activity Starts

Mar 17, 2010

I have 2 activities, A and B. When A starts, it checks for a condition and if true, it calls startActivityForResult() to start B. B only takes text input so it makes sense for the soft keyboard to automatically pop up when B start. When the activity starts, the EditText already has focus and it ready for input. The problem is that the keyboard never shows up, even with windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysVisible" set in the manifest under the <activity> tag for B. I also tried with the value set to stateVisible. Since it doesn't show up automatically, I have to tap the EditText to make it show.

Android :: Soft Keyboard Does Not Show When Activity Starts

Apr 26, 2010

I have added android:windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysVisible" to my Activity in AndroidManifest.xml and here's my layout:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<EditText android:id="@+id/EditText01" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"></EditText>
<EditText android:id="@+id/EditText02" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"></EditText>
<Button android:id="@+id/Button01" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="Send"></Button>
</LinearLayout>

When the Activity starts, the EditText is focused, but soft keyboard isn't displayed. If I click on the EditText, then I see the soft keyboard. Do I need to set aditional parameters to display soft keyboard when my Activity starts?

Android :: Keep Soft Keyboard From Opening On Activity Launch?

Jun 14, 2010

In an Android app, whenever the activity launches, the textbox gets the focus and the soft keyboard pops up automatically. I have tried to stop this by using following line in onCreate method, but it does not work.

((InputMethodManager) getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE)).hideSoftInputFromWindow(EditText.getWindowToken(), 0);

Android :: Soft Keyboard Pushes Layout Of Activity Out Of Screen

Nov 6, 2010

My activity's layout is as shown below.

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:orientation="vertical">

<FrameLayout android:id="@+id/title_bar"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="25dip"
android:background="@drawable/bg_title" />..............

So, the search box is fixed to the bottom of the screen. But, when user clicks the EditText, Soft Keyboard shows up and pushes the layout out of the screen except the search box. I'm just starting out with Android, so am I doing anything wrong here??

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 :: How To Scroll To Bottom On Activity Startup?

Jul 22, 2010

I am displaying some data in a ScrollView. On activity startup (method onCreate) I fill the ScrollView with data and want to scroll to the bottom. I tried to use:
getScrollView().fullScroll(ScrollView.FOCUS_DOWN).
This works when I make it as an action on button click but it doesn't work in the onCreate method. Is there any way how to scroll the ScrollView to the bottom on activity startup? That means the view is already scrolled to the bottom when first time displayed.

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?

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 :: Specify Which Item Gets Default Focus On Activity Startup?

Apr 11, 2009

How can you specify which item gets the default focus on Activity startup? Using requestFocus programmatically does not work. On setContextView the first focusable item listed in the XML is given the default focus. When using RelativeLayout, the first item listed is not always the desired item or necessarily on top.

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.

Android :: App Specific Soft Keyboard

Dec 13, 2009

Is there a way to create an app specific soft keyboard on Android? After reading about InputMethodService docs and checking out alternative keyboard apps out there, I figure the alternate keyboard can only be configured for system wide usage (through Settings -> Locale and Text).

If the answer to above question is no, then is there at least a way to load a custom dictionary and override the default dictionary of the system keyboard (only when my app is in use)? That will help in giving very relevant suggestions to the user when he has only tapped couple of keys.

Android :: Numeric Soft Keyboard

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?
