DONE key on android keyboard

I'm having trouble with done/enter/next key. I'm making android soft keyboard and whenever I try to search for something I can't do that because when I press DONE key the cursor just moves to next row. Here is my code:

XML

<Key android:keyLabel="DONE" android:keyWidth="11.11%" android:codes="-1"/>


JAVA

@Override
public void onKey(int primaryCode, int[] keyCodes) {
InputConnection ic = getCurrentInputConnection();
switch(primaryCode){
case -1:
ic.sendKeyEvent(new KeyEvent(KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER));
break;
default:
char code = (char)primaryCode;
if(Character.isLetter(code) && caps){
code = Character.toUpperCase(code);
}
ic.commitText(String.valueOf(code), 1);
}
}


Example: If I search for something on Google and I type what I want and when I click DONE key I want it to start the search. Can you please help me with that. Thanks in advance.

Instead of

ic.sendKeyEvent(new KeyEvent(KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER));

try

ic.performEditorAction(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_GO);

The action performed should be the one defined on the EditorInfo, which is passed to you on method onStartInputView

To switch between actions, use this:

(sEditorInfo.imeOptions & (EditorInfo.IME_MASK_ACTION|EditorInfo.IME_FLAG_NO_ENTER_ACTION))

Hope this helps.

Code:

case -1:

    switch (sEditorInfo.imeOptions & (EditorInfo.IME_MASK_ACTION|EditorInfo.IME_FLAG_NO_ENTER_ACTION)) {
        case EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_GO:
            ic.performEditorAction(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_GO);
            break;
        case EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_NEXT:
            ic.performEditorAction(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_NEXT);
            break;
        case EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_SEARCH:
            ic.performEditorAction(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_SEARCH);
            break;
        case EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_SEND:
            ic.performEditorAction(EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_SEND);
            break;
        default:
            ic.sendKeyEvent(new KeyEvent(KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER));
            break;
    }

    break;
