android – imeOptions "actionNext" programmatically – how to jump to next field?

Posted by: admin March 11, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

In layout XML it is possible to specify android:imeOptions="actionNext" which adds Next button in virtual keyboard and by clicking on it – focus jumps to the next field.

How to do this programmatically – e.g. based on some event trigger focus to go to the next field?

How to&Answers:

You can use the constants from EditorInfo class for the IME options.
like,

editText.setImeOptions(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_NEXT);

Answer:

Search for the next focusable field and than invoke requestFocus().

TextView nextField = (TextView)currentField.focusSearch(View.FOCUS_RIGHT);
nextField.requestFocus();

Answer:

Just suggestion, if you are using

     EditTextSample.setImeOptions(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_DONE); 

it doesn’t work, make sure that your EditText is using a single line.

Eg:

       editTextSample.setSingleLine();

Answer:

There is always necessity to add extra keys apart from default keys available in virtual QWERTY keyboard.

Using XML

<EditText android:text="@+id/EditText01" 
android:id="@+id/EditText01"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:imeOptions="actionDone"/>

By Programmatic Way

An EditorInfo is most useful class when you have to deal with any type of user input in your Android application.

IME_ACTION_DONE: This action performs a “done” operation for nothing to input and the IME will be closed.

     EditTextSample.setImeOptions(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_DONE);

Answer:

The kotlin pendant

editText.imeOptions = EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_DONE

Answer:

editText.setLines(1);
editText.setSingleLine(true);
editText.setImeOptions(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_GO);

I solve the problem make sure with single line and go next editText when click enter
