Enter Key

Hey everybody,

I am running the default keyboard on my galaxy s5.

Everything is working fine but I have a "new line"/"enter" key on my keyboard. When pressed it make the cursor goto the next line. Is there a way to disable this?

It depends on the 'type' of Text Field you use. Normally if you want a multiline EditText you could change the android:inputType to text. There are also some others properties like: android:singleLine and android:lines, Try to play with them and see what happens! Hope it helps.
