Storm keyboard not disappearing on swipe down?

Hi guys,

 

I have customized the sceen and bringing up keyboard on clicking a button by:

getScreen().getVirtualKeyboard().setVisibility(VirtualKeyboard.SHOW_FORCE).

 

Now when i Swipe down on keyboard it dont go away, wheres in other standard apps when you do swipe down on keyboard it goes away.

I dont know why there is difference in behavior?

Any workaround for this by which this keyboard can go on Swipe down on keyboard.

Have u tried using VirtualKeyboard.SHOW  instead of the SHOW_FORCE?

Re: Storm keyboard not disappearing on swipe down?

hey i tried it earlier using just SHOW, it works with it. i know its because of show_force.

but somehow SHOW dont always show the keyboard for me.

thanks for reminding me of this behavior may be i shud try ti make it work using SHOW only.
