Keyboard Actions

pub package

Add features to the Android / iOS keyboard in a simple way.

Because the keyboard that Android / iOS offers us specifically when we are in numeric mode, does not bring the button to hide the keyboard. This causes a lot of inconvenience for users, so this package allows adding functionality to the existing keyboard.

Features

  • Done button for the keyboard (You can customize the button).
  • Move up/down between your Textfields (You can hide for set nextFocus: false).
  • Keyboard Bar customization.
  • Custom footer widget below keyboard bar
  • Create your own Keyboard in an easy way
  • You can use it for Android, iOS or both platforms.
  • Compatible with Dialog.

Example of the custom footer:

For more fun, use that widget as a custom keyboard with your custom input:

Getting started

You should ensure that you add the dependency in your flutter project.

dependencies:
  keyboard_actions: "^3.3.1+1"

You should then run flutter packages upgrade or update your packages in IntelliJ.

Example Project

There is an example project in the example folder where you can get more information. Check it out. Otherwise, keep reading to get up and running.
