Keyboard displayed for a radio button field

Post by Anne » September 23rd, 2020, 5:35 am

Hi,
I'm working on an app that goes back and forth between a menu with radio buttons that are made dynamically - and other forms in my questionnaire.
The value set of the menu is built in an "onfocus" of the menu field (as the preproc is not run when going back with "reenter")

And it looks OK when the app is starting, but when returning after filling in a part of the questionnaire, both the radio buttons and a keyboard is displayed (see attachment).

Is there a way I can get rid of the keyboard so that only the radio buttons are displayed?

Regards,
Anne

Unfortunately the keyboard display seems to vary a bit from device to device. In theory, if there are no text fields on the screen Android is not supposed to show the keyboard and that seems to work correctly on many Android devices, in particular Google's own Pixel phones, but on other devices where the manufacturers have replaced the standard Android keyboard with their own, it doesn't always follow that rule.

How annoying!

But thanks very much anyway. At least I'm going to stop spending time on this issue.
