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.
  • Keyboard Bar customization.
  • Custom footer widget below keyboard bar
  • 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:
