We're having the same type of issue. Everything works great with Android in potrait mode, but the soft keyboard in landscape mode has lots of bugs. Most of the time, it opens the large "fill-the-screen" keyboard, but sometimes, the smaller keyboard opens quickly and then closes itself. I've tested this on different devices and versions of Android running Flex 4.6/AIR 3.1. This is a bug and causing us some pain. Everything works great on iOS. I'm going to attempt to open a ticket with our Adobe rep.
anybody has found a fix for this on android? or is this issue addressed already? its probably one of the downsides in android space, but only in landscape.
Hi, there. I just found out that this problem won't happen with Android 3.0.
However, it does with below 2.3.
Hi, I know this is old, but did anyone find a solution to this?
I'm testing on Android 4.3 and still normally get a fullscreen keyboard in landscape mode.
I've noticed that sometimes, after I first open my landscape-only Air app, it will use the halfscreen keyboard - although, once it reverts back to the fullscreen keyboard it uses the fullscreen one from then on. I have no idea why this is or how to replicate it, but I thought it was interesting to note that an Air app can display a half screen keyboard in landscape mode - it just seems there is no way to control when!
If anyone can help, please do!
