Animate Keyboard Behaviour In Android

Updated 11 October 2021


Before starting our blog topic Animate Keyboard Behaviour In Android, we will discuss in short that why we need to animate the keyboard behaviour i.e, opening or closing in the android application.

As we are familiar with android development and we know that the keyboard creates jerking while opening or closing on input fields or edit fields and some times it leads to distorted the view anonymously. It might create a bad impact on the user experience and user interface. So for enhancing the user experience and creating a flexible user interface, we can Animate Keyboard Behaviour In Android. For implementing the same, we are following the mentioned steps:

1.  Create keyboard animator abstract class

In this abstract class, we are going to declare some method to start and stop the animation. We have also defined an abstract variable of View.OnApplyWindowInsetsListener type to control the animation.


2. Create keyboard animator

This class will extend the abstract class which we have created in the first steps and override the listener mentioned in the first step



3. Implementing the animation in our layout.

This is the final step of the whole procedure. In this step, we will implement the animation in our layout or main class. We have created the basic design with a checkbox and edit text. We are using the checkbox in our design for enabling and disable the animation, you can modify it your need or requirements.

And in our main class, we will implement the animation with the help of the following code snippet


>> And here is the sample output of the code, that we have implemented:
