Keep Controls Visible When Virtual Keyboard Pops Up In Firemonkey On Android And IOS

Virtual Keyboard Control Focus Delphi XE5 FiremonkeyIf you’re building any kind of Delphi XE5 Firemonkey mobile app that has input controls you have probably run into the problem of the virtual keyboard hiding the edit controls underneath itself. There are a few different solutions to this problem but some of the best ones support the multiline TMemo as well. I believe all of the solutions work cross platform in Delphi XE5 Firemonkey for Android and IOS. You can find two solutions from David Nottage and Mike Sutton in this Embarcadero forum post from September 2013. David Nottage also wrote a blog post about his solution which comes with demo source code. David’s solution has been put into a component called TControlMover you can easily add to any of your projects. Here is a sample from his component:

Lastly, there is a ScrollableForm demo available from Embarcadero. Here is a sample of the source from the ScrollableForm demo:

Head over and get the full source to the TControlMover component and demo.
