Keep the keyboard up and Focus on text field after submit on Angular2

I’m creating an app with a chat room for iOS and when I send a new message it blurs the input field and the keyboard slides down. I already tried all solutions from following article, but not work.

Is there any solution to make it work properly? Thanks

It does not yet seem possible to implement a simple chat page in Ionic2 where the keyboard stays up in between messages.

Im surprised as the chat functionality is a basic thing used by many apps.


Did you manage to find a solution for this? I’m also creating a chat app and struggling with this.

use this simple combination;

<ion-button (mousedown)="$event.preventDefault(); sendTheMessage()">
