Any way to delay keyboard popup on input focus?

I have a customized input that has an animation when focused,
the problem is that as soon as I focus the element the keyboard popup and destroy the animation.
Is there any way to delay the popup of the keyboard till after the animation complete?

You could put a transparent div over that input field.

When this div is clicked trigger mentioned animation. When animation ends use Ionic Cordova plugin and programmatically trigger a keyboard to show + focus input field.


thanks, that will do the trick.
