Hiding the Android soft keyboard
Posted by pcfinch on July 19, 2012
This sounded so simple… but it wasn’t as easy as I thought. All I wanted to do was hide the soft keyboard when I was switching (using a ViewFlipper) to a view that did not require it. This is what I ended up doing and it seems to work.
ViewFlipper flipper = (ViewFlipper)this.findViewById(R.id.viewFlipper_main) ; // Any active view will do InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE) ; imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(flipper.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0); flipper.setDisplayedChild(1) ;
