    Answered: iPhone / Android Keyboard events


    Hi,

    Is it possible to detect when the native keyboard is open/close while the user is editing a TextAre?
    I want to show/hide some controls base on that. Is it possible? I don't see any events like this in the textarea documentation (list of events).

    Thanks!

  2. Listen for focus/blur events on the field.

    Listening for focus/blur events on textfields is not the same as knowing whether or not the virtual keyboard is visible, unfortunately. For example, a user can click a field which makes the keyboard appear, but then they can press the keyboard key to hide the keyboard without losing focus on the field. In this case, then, the keyboard is hidden while the blur event has not happened.

    [Next Day Edit: ] My comments here do not necessarily relate to the OP's purpose; I apologize for that discrepancy. They do relate to Android keyboard events or lack thereof, however. I'll report my findings in a more-related thread.
