Keyboard

The cordova.plugins.Keyboard object provides functions to make interacting with the keyboard easier, and fires events to indicate that the keyboard will hide/show.

cordova plugin add ionic-plugin-keyboard --save

Methods

  • cordova.plugins.Keyboard.hideKeyboardAccessoryBar
  • cordova.plugins.Keyboard.close
  • cordova.plugins.Keyboard.disableScroll
  • cordova.plugins.Keyboard.show

Properties

  • cordova.plugins.Keyboard.isVisible

Events

These events are fired on the window.

  • native.keyboardshow
    • A number keyboardHeight is given on the event object, which is the pixel height of the keyboard.
  • native.keyboardhide

API reference

Keyboard.hideKeyboardAccessoryBar

Hide the keyboard accessory bar with the next, previous and done buttons.

cordova.plugins.Keyboard.hideKeyboardAccessoryBar(true);
cordova.plugins.Keyboard.hideKeyboardAccessoryBar(false);

Supported Platforms

  • iOS

Keyboard.close

Close the keyboard if it is open.

cordova.plugins.Keyboard.close();

Supported Platforms

  • iOS, Android, Blackberry 10, Windows

Keyboard.disableScroll

Prevent the native UIScrollView from moving when an input is focused. The telltale sign that this is happening is the top of your app scrolls out of view (if using Ionic, your header bar will disappear).

This does not prevent any DOM elements from being able to scroll. That needs to happen from CSS and JavaScript, not this plugin.

cordova.plugins.Keyboard.disableScroll(true);
cordova.plugins.Keyboard.disableScroll(false);

Supported Platforms

  • iOS, Windows

Keyboard.show

Force keyboard to be shown. This typically helps if autofocus on a text element does not pop up the keyboard automatically

cordova.plugins.Keyboard.show();

Supported Platforms

  • Android, Blackberry 10, Windows

native.keyboardshow

This event fires when the keyboard will be shown or when the keyboard frame resizes (when switching between keyboards for example)

window.addEventListener('native.keyboardshow', keyboardShowHandler);

function keyboardShowHandler(e){
    alert('Keyboard height is: ' + e.keyboardHeight);
}

Properties

keyboardHeight: the height of the keyboard in pixels

Supported Platforms

  • iOS, Android, Blackberry 10, Windows

native.keyboardhide

This event fires when the keyboard will hide

window.addEventListener('native.keyboardhide', keyboardHideHandler);

function keyboardHideHandler(e){
    alert('Goodnight, sweet prince');
}

Properties

None

Supported Platforms

  • iOS, Android, Blackberry 10, Windows
