Usage

Use it as normal keyboard view and

  1. Place FloatingKeyboardView inside a FrameLayout or a RelativeLayout (TIP: Put it last or/and with some elevation)
  2. Make an xml with you keyboard layout ( https://developer.android.com/reference/android/inputmethodservice/Keyboard.html)
  3. Declare it in activity code FloatingKeyboardView mCustomKeyboard = (FloatingKeyboardView) findViewById(R.id.keyboardview);
  4. Assign the keyboard layout mCustomKeyboard.setKeyboard(new Keyboard(this, R.xml.numkbd));
