Keyboard - Hide Galaxy S8/S8 Plus Soft Home Buttons

The Ionic Keyboard doesn’t account for the height of the new soft home buttons that come up from the button of the Samsung Galaxy S8. Is there a way to have this height included when it appears with the keyboard shown or if there is a way to not show the soft home buttons bar when the keyboard is shown?

Can you provide screenshots so we have the slightest idea what you are talking about?


The input field is not showing as it should. The keyboard plugin is not accounting for the height of the soft buttons at the bottom there so it is not getting pushed up enough.

Have you got Keyboard.shrinkView turned on / off?

BTW you don’t need this plugin - it’s just got the documentation.

I was using this plugin actually:

@ionic/cli-utils : 1.10.2
ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.10.3

global packages:

Cordova CLI : 7.0.1 

local packages:

@ionic/app-scripts : 2.1.3
Cordova Platforms  : android 6.2.3 ios 4.4.0
Ionic Framework    : ionic-angular 3.6.0


Android SDK Tools : 25.2.5
ios-deploy        : 1.9.1 
ios-sim           : 5.0.13 
Node              : v6.11.2
npm               : 3.10.10 
OS                : macOS Sierra
Xcode             : Xcode 8.3.3 Build version 8E3004b

I believe all the commands in the main Cordova keyboard plugin are available in the Ionic version.

Have a play with the shrink view setting using web inspector.

If this is unresolvable it’ll need reporting as it may be Samgung has moved the goalposts.
