Cordova plugin ionic keyboard crashes the layout


#1

I am using cordova-plugin-ionic-keyboard plugin for keyboard in my Ionic3/Angular app. My Ui looks like below before the keyboard appears:
emphasized text
Capture

But, when the keyboard appears it crashes the layout of the application like below:

Capture1

Then, i tried to halt the resize of the layout in the config.xml using below code:

<preference name="KeyboardResize" value="false" />

But, still the UI breaks. Then tried all the three combination of KeyboardResizeMode but still UI breaks.

<preference name="KeyboardResizeMode" value="body" />
<preference name="KeyboardResizeMode" value="ionic" />
<preference name="KeyboardResizeMode" value="native" />

Can anyone point me out how to avoid UI breaking when Keyboard appears in the screen?


What’s the difference between “cordova-plugin-ionic-keyboard” and “ionic-plugin-keyboard”?

Hi @setu1421 , can you share your html file?


#3

I have shared my HTML code. Is it actually the problem of HTML codes or the problem of the keyboard plugin?


#4

Well , I’m not expert in Ionic, but, have you tested your page with normal keyboard? I’m asking it because I see your SCSS has many position attributes. Until where I know, how much more you use this, you have so much more chance to break your layout.

Check if this keyboard is created like a element in webview or it’s part of operating system. Maybe, it has elements that makes page to break.


#5

Can anyone point me how to keep the layout even though the keyboard is opened?


#6

Can you share the config.xml file?

<preference name="KeyboardResizeMode" value="ionic" />

It should work!

Add / change de preference and run again!

PD: Always you change config file you need to run (compile) again!

No… It’s not working. Still putting ‘ionic’ as KeyboardResizeMode breaks the UI. And i am recompiling when changing in config.xml file. My config.xml is:

Change in the AndroidManifest.xml file did the trick for me.

  android:windowSoftInputMode="adjustPan"

#9

@setu1421 can you instruct how you have imported this cordova-plugin-ionic-keyboard.
I am not able to find any way of accessing its functions in Ionic project.
Thanks in advance


#10

Hi @setu1421
How do you set android:windowSoftInputMode=“adjustPan” property?


#11

What I did is declare it in component:

import { Component, ViewChild, ElementRef } from '@angular/core';
...
declare var Keyboard: any;

...

@IonicPage({
...

  onScrollStart(event) {
    Keyboard.hide();
  }
