What I'm looking to do is hide only the popups that show what key you are currently pressing while using a soft keyboard. Is this even possible? I am creating my own new keyboard which will have no need for them.
From what I think I understand, the picture below is the actual popup keyboard that you can choose to show using
After reading a little bit of the actual android keyboard source code:
What I was referring to was the "key preview", which is "a popup that shows a magnified version of the depressed key." By default the preview is enabled, but to disable it, simply enough, is
setPreviewEnabled(boolean previewEnabled). Which is a method from the
KeyboardView class. API.
