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 :: Soft keyboard does not show when Activity starts


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 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 :: 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 :: Only Show Number Buttons On Soft Keyboard

Jul 28, 2010

On the soft keyboard in Android you can set the soft keyboard to show the numbers instead of a-z keyboard using android:inputType="numberDecimal". However, what do I do if I only want to show the top number row 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 and not the following rows starting with @ # $ %?

Android :: Show Soft Keyboard Automatically When Focus On EditText

Mar 8, 2010

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Activity Starts Remote Service

Oct 8, 2010

My initial activity is basically a splash screen while preforming initialization and login in to network server. To save memory I want to finish() the splash activity once it starts the main menu activity. I still want the remote service to operate. Testing shows it does. But am I going to get into trouble doing this? I know I can restart the remote from the main menu activity but I am trying to save overhead by not starting it twice. The remote service is required by the splash activity.

Android :: Best Way For Service That Starts Activity To Communicate With It

Feb 16, 2010

I have a service that listens to a socket. When receiving certain input it is to create an activity. When receiving other input, it is to kill this activity. I have struggled for a while to make the service communicate with the activity through AIDL (http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/aidl.html), but this seems to not be effective. I think AIDL is only effective when the process that is to be talked to is a service, not when it is an activity? I would love some directions or suggestions on how to solve my problem.

I would need to know when one activity starts or get's focus. I need this notification for any activity regardless of his type, name or whatever - not searching for one specific activity. Checked the ActivityMonitor and the Intent and I haven't found a generic intent for this purpose. Or I hadn't understood well the descriptions from the Intent ACTION_xxxxx.

Android : How To Ensure View Isn't In Focus When Activity Starts?

Oct 2, 2009

I open an Activity which has a number of elements... some TextViews, some Buttons, and an EditText. For some reason, when the activity starts, the EditText is focused by default, which causes the keypad to appear hiding the screen. I only want this EditText to be in focus if the user clicks into it. How can I ensure that this View isn't in focus when the activity starts? I've tried calling requestFocus() on one of the buttons, but it hasn't changed anything. Ideally, I don't want anything in focus at all.

Android :: Widget Starting Service Also Starts Main Activity

May 3, 2010

I have a widget that is supposed to start and stop a service (start it when it's not running, stop it when it is). This is working fine, however, each time the service is started, my app's main activity is also launched, which I don't want from the app's manifest, it works as I want it to (without launching the main-activity, just the service), but then I obviously don't have a main activity anymore.This is how I start the service (I would assume this is the normal way, and I can't see any reference to what might cause the MAIN intent to fire).

Android :: Pausing VideoView When Launching A New Intent / Resume It To Starts Up Activity Again?

Jul 23, 2009

I have an activity that is showing a video and when the user clicks a button, a new activity is launched. When the video activity stops, I pause the video view. When the video activity starts up again, I try to resume the video view videoView.start(), however, the video starts over from the beginning. I'm thinking that the buffer must be lost somewhere, so I now try to capture the current position via videoView.getCurrentPosition(), however, this is always returning 0.

Anybody know how to resume video playback when an activity starts up again?

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.
