Android :: Soft Keyboard Not Open On Custom View In Landscape Mode?

Dec 14, 2009

I've been experimenting with the IMM and it's mostly straightforward, but for some reason, my custom view that launches the soft keyboard works only in portrait mode. Launching it is easy enough:
InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getContext().getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.toggleSoftInputFromWindow(getWindowToken(), InputMethodManager.SHOW_IMPLICIT, 0);

I've seen a couple notes about the soft keyboard only working in portrait but I assume this was a limitation in a previous version, since all the Android EditText views work fine in both portrait and landscape. Is there some additional piece of work needed to enable landscape?

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 :: Soft Keyboard In Landscape

Mar 5, 2009

I am building from source and running in the emulator. I would like to know if the soft keyboard has support for operating in Landscape mode. Portrait appears to work fine, but when switching the emulator to Landscape, it appears to be working on the premise that a hard keyboard is in operation. Is it possible to use the soft keyboard in Landscape and how would I enable this if so?

Android :: Forcing The Soft Keyboard Open

Mar 19, 2010

I am trying to force the Soft Keyboard open in an Activity and grab everything that is entered as I want to handle the input myself, I don't have an EditText. Currently I have tried this but it does not work. I would like the Soft Keyboardto open below mAnswerTextView (Note: it is a TextView not EditText).

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

How do I force the Soft Keyboard open. How do I gab everything that is entered so that I can handle each character. I would like to flush each character from the Soft Keyboard after I have handled it. ie, the user should not be able to enter whole words in the Soft Keyboard.

Android : Soft Keyboard In Fullscreen / Extract Mode

Sep 11, 2009

When Android is in portrait mode and the soft keyboard IME is shown, my app is resized properly. When in landscape mode, the soft keyboard IME is always in fullscreen/extract mode, and even though I can see the top portion of my app, it doesn't resize my app. I couldn't find any way to make the IME not come up in fullscreen mode. So instead, I detect this condition, and manually resize my app. This works, but unfortunately, to make this work well, I need to know the height of the IME, or the portion of my app that remains visible. But it seems there is no way to get this information, and the soft keyboard IME's height varies on different devices. As a hack, I put in options for the user to be able to adjust these parameters, and set the defaults for the G1. I can live with this for now, but is there a more appropriate way to handle this?

In addition, even in portrait mode, if the status bar is hidden, the IME also does not resize my app. This clearly seems like a bug to me.

Android : How To Develop A Custom Soft Keyboard?

Sep 11, 2009

In v1.5 of the SDK, the release notes include "Support for user installation of 3rd party keyboards". So the API allows you to design a custom keyboard layout within a single app. But how might one go about developing a custom keyboard that a user could download and install (as opposed to compiling your own build of Android), that would replace the soft system keyboard in all instances? Is there any online documentation for how to get started on doing this?

HTC Incredible :: No Keyboard In Landscape Mode

Apr 29, 2010

I just bought my android incredible today and I'm absolutely addicted to it. However, I ran into a problem today with my phone that makes me wonder if it's something minor that I can fix on my own or if it has to be taken in. You know when you tilt your phone longways the display changes as well so you have a bigger keyboard? Well, mine's not doing it now and I'm wondering what the problem is.

HTC Magic :: Recovery Mode - Soft Keyboard

Oct 28, 2009

If you enter recover mode on a HTC Magic, for example (holding down HOME+POWER buttons) you do not have access to the keyboard to continue. After the Recover Mode tirangle icon has appeared, press HOME+POWER again and that will bring up a menu for you to reboot the phone, update, or factory resets. use the trackball to select which option you want.

Android :: Prevent The Soft Keyboard From Pushing View Up

I have a vertical sliding drawer at the bottom of my app. When the soft keyboard opens, it pushes the tab for the drawer up, so it sits atop the keyboard. I actually want it to remain at the bottom of the screen, becoming hidden when the keyboard is shown.

Motorola Droid 2 :: No Landscape Mode When Not Using Keyboard

Nov 12, 2010

I got my Droid 2 (or as it is called in Germany Milestone 2) just this week. I got two minor things that are bugging me. (see the other one here Is it possible to reconfigure the keyboard?) Otherwise I'm loving my new phone. I got the auto-adjust option for the Display turned on but for some reason the screen won't switch to the landscape mode as long as I don't pull out the physical keyboard. That is only the case for the homescreens and the main app menu. Otherwise it works fine. For example, if I open the settings I get to look at them in landscape mode with the keyboard in our out.

Motorola Droid :: Contacts Search Doesn't Open Soft Keyboard

Aug 23, 2010

While in the Phone/Contacts app, I LOVE the search button to open the contacts search box. However, when I press the button, it doesn't automatically open the soft keyboard and I have to first press in the input box. Is there any way to make it automatically open the soft keyboard? It's not a major issue, but it's a slight nuisance. I'm running a rooted Droid with Froyo (FRG01B, manually updated).

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?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Android Keyboard Response - Landscape And Portrait Mode

Sep 2, 2010

I am having a lot of difficulty with my keyboard in both landscape and portrait. I am using the "Android Keyboard" that came with the phone. Examples of what I am referring to:

1. Wrong Key Showing: I type one letter and a different one is actually displayed.
2. Horrible Response: I get half way through an email and realize I need to fix an error in the middle of the paragraph. Trying to get the cursor where I want it a extremely hard to do and often it will move, but not where it is suppose to be moved to. Other times the cursor simply doesn't move at all and I have to erase all the back to where the error is and than retype. And no the cut and paste or copy and paste do not work since the cursor is not moving.
3. Random sentences just erase: I will be typing and hit the back key to erase a character, but instead it erases a line or two and won't stop.

Suggestions and no I am not going to root and void the warranty.

HTC Incredible :: Browser And Keyboard Not Switching To Landscape Mode

May 25, 2010

Had the phone about 30 hours or so, been happily learning the ins and outs of my first android. Was streaming Pandora for a couple hours while working, then went to type a text and the full size landscape qwerty wouldn't come up only that aweful portrait mode cramped keyboard that makes me feel like I am typing on a blackberry now the browser won't switch to landscape either which is 'incredibly' annoying. Teeter seems to work fine, on level 19 and also "Bubble" an app for Leveling which switches to landscape in either direction.

HTC EVO 4G :: Keyboard (landscape View) Y Key Not Working

Jul 3, 2010

I was typing on my keyboard (landscape view) and noticed that the "Y" key didn't work. I though it was nothing, until I tried to exit out of my navigation app, but the exit button wouldn't work. So i downloaded a draw app to see it maybe it was just my screen, and what do you know, i was able to draw swiping up and down holding the phone upright. But when trying it side to side, a whole panel doesn't work. wth? Tried to reboot and nothing. Anyone else have this issue? Looks like its back to sprint this evo goes. Peep the pics.

HTC Droid Eris :: Minimize Keyboard Button In Landscape Mode?

May 26, 2010

So the "minimize keyboard" button in the lower left of the landscape qwerty keyboard works maybe every 5th time. I only started noticing this after the 2.1 OTA. However my wife has the 2.1 on her Eris as well and hers works perfectly. If I make sure to push the very top edge of the button, it works fine, but just pressing it normally in the middle rarely works. Perhaps there is something wrong with that corner if the screen.

Samsung Moment :: Physical Keyboard Opened In Landscape Mode

Feb 6, 2010

When opening the physical keyboard, the phone first comes out of sleep, and then switches from portrait to landscape. This is typically not too noticeable, but sometimes it takes up to 5 seconds. Is there a way to make it so that opening the keyboard just resumes this phone already in landscape? Also, has anyone figured out a way to get the home screen to respect switching to landscape when rotated, like all well-developed apps do?
