How can I hide the keyboard on a input field?
Application Type
Service Studio Version
11.10.9 (Build 38535)
Platform Version
11.9.0 (Build 17011)

I have an Android device with an integrated infrared barcode reader. When I scan a barcode the text is populated in the current focused text field. I don't want the keyboard to appear for this input field like in this screenshot.

I tried the Keyboard plugin forge component but this. I get the error: "Keyboard.hide is not a function". Is this related to the fact that this plugin is only available for platform version 10, we are running version 11?

Any other tips to hide the keyboard???


Hi Raymond,

Have you reinstalled the app after using the dependency for the Keyboard plugin?

The usage of plugins needs the app to be reinstalled in order to use them.

You can see in more detail here, which are the situations when the user must install a new build, among which new plugins.

Kind Regards,

That solved the problem thanks !

Hi Raymond,
