I know that focussing an input box will show the keyboard with a slide up animation, but I would like the keyboard to already be up when my new page transitions in.
For example, Facebook Messenger on iOS does this when transitioning to a conversation that I previously had the keyboard up on.
I was so hopeful for the ionic keyboard plugin’s
window.cordova.plugins.Keyboard.show() because the
close() method is instant. Alas, calling
show() doesn’t show a keyboard at all displaying this message:
Showing keyboard not supported in iOS due to platform limitations.
