Tutorial :softkeyboard in landscape mode does not pop up in android emulator


In android emulator, I am in landscape mode and double click the text edit panel. the softkeyboard does not show up. However, it works in portrait mode.

I have check some of posts on line. They said because of hardkeyboard is available in landscape mode. If that so, how can i disable the hardkeyboard. Or is there any setting reason for this problem?


The default emulator has a hard keyboard. When you put it in landscape mode it doesn't show the softkeyboard.

To solve this, create a new AVD and in Hardware properties add:

Keyboard support "no"
