Framework classes for interaction between views and input methods (such as soft keyboards). See
for an overview. In most cases the main classes here are not needed for most applications, since they are dealt with for you by
. When implementing a custom text editor, however, you will need to implement the
class to allow the current input method to interact with your view.
||The InputConnection interface is the communication channel from an
InputMethod back to the application that is receiving its input.
||The InputMethod interface represents an input method which can generate key events and text, such as digital, email addresses, CJK characters, other language characters, and etc., while handling various input events, and send the text back to the application that requests text input.
||The InputMethodSession interface provides the per-client functionality of
InputMethod that is safe to expose to applications.
||Base class for implementors of the InputConnection interface, taking care of most of the common behavior for providing a connection to an Editable.
||Information about a single text completion that an editor has reported to an input method.
||Information about a single text correction that an editor has reported to an input method.
||An EditorInfo describes several attributes of a text editing object that an input method is communicating with (typically an EditText), most importantly the type of text content it contains.
||Information about text that has been extracted for use by an input method.
||Description of what an input method would like from an application when extract text from its input editor.
||Information given to an
InputMethod about a client connecting to it.
Wrapper class for proxying calls to another InputConnection.
||This class is used to specify meta information of an input method.
||Central system API to the overall input method framework (IMF) architecture, which arbitrates interaction between applications and the current input method.
||This class is used to specify meta information of a subtype contained in an input method editor (IME).
||InputMethodSubtypeBuilder is a builder class of InputMethodSubtype.
