Software keyboard and iPhone (hide in landscape)

Post by jonnyijapan » Thu Sep 13, 2018 1:38 pm

Since there is no issue tracker (as far as I can see) on Github, I'll use this as an issue.

I believe we need to have the keyboard auto-hide when using iPhone in landscape

* I'll do some more research on edge cases, what people have done so far, in particular https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/pull/1326 and https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/pull/1225 and other pull requests.

* I think we should assume that most people on iOS will use iPhone without external hardware bluetooth keyboards - such things could be "supported" eventually but first priority should be ability to play "standalone". Btw the software keyboard on iPad can be hidden "by default", just confirmed that on my iPad Retina.

* Side note: I don't think bluetooth mice are supported for iPhone.

* If it seems like I can fix the keyboard in landscape in some way, I will do so and open a PR.

Please chime in if you have any insight.

I have not use ScummVM on iOS recently, but it used to be the case that the virtual keyboard would auto-hide when rotating the device to landscape mode (and auto-show when rotating to portrait mode) on both iPhone and iPad. If that no longer works, this might have been broken by one of the PR merged in the past few months. Or maybe this was broken by a recent iOS update.
