Android.Views.InputMethods Namespace

Remarks

Framework classes for interaction between views and input methods (such as soft keyboards). See InputMethodManager for an overview. In most cases the main classes here are not needed for most applications, since they are dealt with for you by TextView. When implementing a custom text editor, however, you will need to implement the InputConnection class to allow the current input method to interact with your view.

Classes

TypeReason
BaseInputConnectionBase class for implementors of the InputConnection interface, taking care of most of the common behavior for providing a connection to an Editable.
BaseInputConnection+InterfaceConsts
CompletionInfoInformation about a single text completion that an editor has reported to an input method.

IInputConnectionThe InputConnection interface is the communication channel from an InputMethod back to the application that is receiving its input.
IInputConnectionExtensions
IInputMethodThe InputMethod interface represents an input method which can generate key events and text, such as digital, email addresses, CJK characters, other language characters, and etc., while handling various input events, and send the text back to the application that requests text input.
IInputMethodSessionThe InputMethodSession interface provides the per-client functionality of InputMethod that is safe to expose to applications.
