How do you close hide the Android soft keyboard programmatically

0 votes
I have an EditText and a Button in my layout and after commencing the  writing in the edit field and clicking on the Button, I want to hide the virtual keyboard when touching outside the keyboard. I assume that this is a simple piece of code, but where can I find an example of it?

One solution to hide keyboard would be to use the following lines of code:

InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService(Activity.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE); imm.toggleSoftInput(InputMethodManager.HIDE_IMPLICIT_ONLY, 0);

Here pass HIDE_IMPLICIT_ONLY at the position of showFlag and 0 at the position of hiddenFlag. It will forcefully close the soft Keyboard.

The solution that I can think of right away in order to hide the keyboard would be by using:-
 

getWindow().setSoftInputMode( WindowManager.LayoutParams.SOFT_INPUT_STATE_ALWAYS_HIDDEN );


This can be used to suppress the soft-keyboard until the user actually touches the editText View.
