The most popular onscreen input methods of Android development is the soft keyboards as per in the Input Method Framework version 1.5.The IMF supports the new android devices very well and its very essential to ensure that your new device will also support the IMF.
The different methods of IMEs available include the soft keyboard, hand-writing recognizers, and hard keyboard translators which all work well with the Android development devices. The soft keyboard is the most recent innovation and is very widely used. The IME access is possible for the user through the textveiw to edit. The space between the application and the IME could be easily adjusted using the pan and scan option. The screen layout that is very popular is the resize option. This will adjust the screen size according to the visibility of the full application.
Control of IMEs is possible through the XML attributes.if the pan and Scan mode is put as default then it would be a better idea. In fact this should be done only when the resize mode will automatically work when the list view is opted for. From the different text view attributes the best key layout is possible only through the soft keyboard display unit. The full screen mode has some limitations in case of the default actions that could be set as it is limited only to Nextfield and done options only.
There are many other added features in outsource android development like the best would be pan and scan as well as the resize mode. Still other features would be to use android: windowSoftInputMode attribute. This is mainly used to define the AndroidManifest.xml. One of the highly recommended feature is the adjust resize and adjust pan which will give the specification for window adjustment mode.
Two action buttons that forms part of the application are the following:
Enter key that is part of the soft keyboard which will get activated when there is no specific operation in the multi line edit text.
Another button is to access the common application operation when the system is in full screen mode.
All the added features are controlled basically by the android:imeOptions attribute on Text View.
