Keyboard always up


Hey folks,

Is there any ways to have the keyboard always up and keep the focus on a single input, even if the user tap on other buttons ? Or is this just impossible since Ionic is working inside a webview ?

I don’t find clear answers about this.

Is this a real limit with ionic and projects like chat apps (with the keyboard always up, even after the user tap “send” by exemple) or similar that involves the keyboard to be always shown ?

Do we have to programmatically reset the focus to the desire input every time it looses focus ? Or is there a proper way to achieve this ?

Am I misunderstanding or missing something ?

Thank you very much for your clarification !


i did this by focusing back to the input element using input.focus() after i press send to make it work. if there is a better solution i would like to see
