PB: force onscreen keyboard close?



Is there a way to force the onscreen keyboard to close/hide? I am using a datepicker from jquery-ui and the keybaord keeps popping up and blocking the datepicker from view.

Have you considered leveraging the HTML5 input type of "date" instead?


<input type="date"/>


Doing so will enable the date-specific virtual keyboard to allow users to easily enter correctly formatted information.
