why nobody answer me

When I enter the program the keyboard shows ............. how I can prevent its automatic appearance "In Android studio"

Why do you want to prevent the virtual keyboard appearing in an Android mobile app? It appears when the user needs to enter text. What scenario are you trying to cover here?


hi steve I mean.... when I open the app the keyboard suddenly shows when I have editText........how can I make it the" keyboard" don't show. thanks for you Interest.

OK. So when your app starts up, does it have an EditText getting focus. I think there's a way to divert focus elsewhere. If that's not on the EditText the keyboard won't appear.

Great... are you know a way to divert focus elsewhere......if you know please tell me

I tryed to convert focus elsewhere by properties Affiliate to editText.......... but I can't found anything.

I won't be at a computer until tomorrow morning. I'll have a look then. A Google search would probably help you more than I can right now.

okay thank you for help :)
