Can't get keyboard to load onCreate()

My aim is to get the keyboard to open as soon as the app is loaded. Using this code,

InputMethodManager inputMgr = (InputMethodManager)getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
inputMgr.toggleSoftInput(0, 0);`


on a button, I can get the keyboard to load when the button is pressed. However, when placed in the override onCreate() section, nothing happens.

Answer

Add the following line to the activity in AndroidManifest.xml

android:windowSoftInputMode="stateVisible|adjustPan"
