AndroidKeyboardWatcher

Software keyboard open/close watcher for Android.

Android SDK doesn't provide direct way to track open/close events from software keyboard. This small library does it for you.

Usage

Make sure that you use adjustResize windowSoftInputMode in your Acitivty configuration in AndroidManifest.xml:

<activity
    android:name=".MainActivity"
    android:windowSoftInputMode="adjustResize" />

Bind KeyboardWatcher in your Activity.onCreate() method. To prevent memory leaks make sure to unbind it in onDestroy() method.

public class MainActivity extends Activity implements KeyboardWatcher.OnKeyboardToggleListener {
    private KeyboardWatcher keyboardWatcher;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        //...
        keyboardWatcher = new KeyboardWatcher(this);
        keyboardWatcher.setListener(this);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onDestroy() {
        keyboardWatcher.destroy();
        super.onDestroy();
    }

    @Override
    public void onKeyboardShown(int keyboardSize) {
        
    }

    @Override
    public void onKeyboardClosed() {
        
    }
}
