I am a new Mac OS user and I transfered my Android project to Mac after installing Eclipse and all the necessary requirments. My application is running normally, but I can’t seem to type in the emulator.
I am running an Android 4.1 emulator using Eclipse Juno.
This is a problem with the new release of the Android Tools. You will need to edit the AVD to add an option as follows:
From Eclipse, Go to AVD Mananger.
- Select the particular AVD and click on Edit
- Go to the Hardware section, click on New.
- Select the Property Name : Keyboard Support
- By default, it is added with a value of ‘no’. Just click on the value column and change it to ‘yes’.
- Click on Edit AVD again.
This will add a property
config.ini file for the AVD. And it should work fine from there.
The answer posted by @Romin looked promising, but unfortunately did not work for me in SDK 4.0.3. No how many times I changed it to “yes” it would still revert back to “no” after clicking “Edit AVD” (why no “save” button?)
My solution was to simply edit the
.ini file directly:
On Genymotion, edit the AVD and set “Use Virtual Keyboard for Text Input”.
