Tutorial :how to add Go button in android SoftKeyBoard and its functionality?


i want to put "Go" button in android appliation softkeyboard

for search and other related scenarios can any one guide me how to achieve this? with example.

any help would be appriciated.


finally i used...

EditText SearchEditText =(EditText)findViewById(R.id.txtMapSearch);   SearchEditText.setOnEditorActionListener(new OnEditorActionListener(){          @Override       public boolean onEditorAction(TextView arg0, int arg1, KeyEvent arg2) {           if(arg1 == EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_SEARCH)            {               // search pressed and perform your functionality.          }          return false;       }     });   


If your question is that you have an EditText or editable TextView, and you want the action right button on the softkeyboard to read "Go" then add this attribute to your EditText/TextView


note that it will also have to be a single line TextView as otherwise the action button will be a carriage return selector (an arrow).



I am doing same this for "send":

Use this class in your layout :

public class ActionEditText extends EditText { public ActionEditText(Context context) { super(context); }

public ActionEditText(Context context, AttributeSet attrs)  {      super(context, attrs);  }    public ActionEditText(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle)  {      super(context, attrs, defStyle);  }    @Override  public InputConnection onCreateInputConnection(EditorInfo outAttrs)  {      InputConnection conn = super.onCreateInputConnection(outAttrs);      outAttrs.imeOptions &= ~EditorInfo.IME_FLAG_NO_ENTER_ACTION;      return conn;  }  


In xml:

<com.test.custom.ActionEditText              android:id="@+id/postED"              android:layout_width="match_parent"              android:layout_height="wrap_content"              android:layout_weight="1"              android:background="@android:color/transparent"              android:gravity="top|left"              android:hint="@string/msg_type_message_here"              android:imeOptions="actionSend"              android:inputType="textMultiLine"              android:maxLines="5"              android:padding="5dip"              android:scrollbarAlwaysDrawVerticalTrack="true"              android:textColor="@color/white"              android:textSize="20sp" />  


I used


and to handle go action I ma using

etSearch.setOnEditorActionListener(new TextView.OnEditorActionListener() {              @Override              public boolean onEditorAction(TextView v, int actionId, KeyEvent event) {                  if (actionId == EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_GO || actionId == EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_DONE) {                      //your functionality                         // hide virtual keyboard                      InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);                      imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(etSearch.getWindowToken(), InputMethodManager.RESULT_UNCHANGED_SHOWN);                        return true;                  }                  return false;              }          });
