When we explicitly call softkeyboard by Code: final InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager) mParent.getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE); imm.toggleSoftInput(0, 0); and typing on it, EditText on the keypad doesn't show text Help please.
I have tested it. I see the EditText only shows the last character typed in keypad. It cannot append the character in the end of the existing text. This does not happen when same keypad appears after an EditText is selected from the view.
I am forwarding this case to internal appropriate team. Thanks.
