Questions:

I have a screen where the first field is an EditText, and it gains the focus at startup, also popups the numeric input type, which is very annoying

How can I make sure that when the activity is started the focus is not gained, and/or the input panel is not raised?

How to&Answers:
InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editTextField.getWindowToken(), 0);

or

set activity property in manifest file as below in the application tag

android:windowSoftInputMode="stateHidden"

Answer:

go to your application manifest file, and write this line for that activity you want to disable auto keyboard pop-up.

android:windowSoftInputMode="stateHidden"

Answer:

To programatically not have the keyboard displayed, but the default widget still recieve focus call:

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

in onResume()

Answer:

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

call the above method inside onCreate().It prevent softKeyboard to show unless user select EditText by tapping or clicking.

or simply add android:windowSoftInputMode="stateHidden" in Activity tag in Manifest.xml

Answer:

This is usually a mess. The first thing I try is try to steal the focus with another view via . You also have to have the focusable and focusableInTouchMode.

<TextView
  ...
  android:focusable="true"
  android:focusableInTouchMode="true">

    <requestFocus/>
</TextView>

Answer:

Have another view grab focus. By default, the first focusable View will get focus when a layout is inflated. You can request focus on a different View via XML:

<TextView
    android:layout_width="wrap_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:text="Some other view">

    <requestFocus />
</TextView>

This works for any View.

If you want to do it programmatically, you can use view.requestFocus().

Answer:

if(getWindow().getAttributes().softInputMode==WindowManager.LayoutParams.SOFT_INPUT_STATE_UNSPECIFIED)
{
    getWindow().setSoftInputMode(WindowManager.LayoutParams.SOFT_INPUT_STATE_HIDDEN);
}

Answer:

have not tried this nor am i near my programming computer, but I would suspect programmatically sending focus to the parent view or something of that nature could do the trick – thats more likely a workaround than a solution, but again not able to test it just a thought
