Default Prevent Keyboard to show on Android with Hardware Keyboard


many times asked question, but no solution…related to prevent soft keyboard to show.

we are working on warehouse/wms application where we are opening ionic modals with hardware scan button. this is nice. however after modal is opened we focus enter to only one - first field - and note user to enter Quantity - ATM soft keyboard push-up our modal and sw keyboard appear. We want prevent on device with hardware keyboard to show software keyboard.

we are using this plugin

our goal: in settings we want setup default keyboard behaviour for scanners: hide. For mobile phone version show well. another option when mobile phone is require to show keyboard then we add keyboard (custom component) icon and user click on that icon and this cause soft keyboard will appear.

we are using lates 3.9.2 ionic version.
short term solution with workaround should help.

Did you find a way ?
