    Any timescale on this fix being available in 2018.3? Got two apps waiting on this issue and would rather not port to newer versions of Unity due to plugins...

    I'll ask the mobile team for an ETA on 2018.3.

    Hello, I've also got this problem. The hide mobile input doesn't work in Android, I've check it but the input field above the virtual keyboard still appears.

    As per my post above, this should have been fixed in 2019.1 but not yet in 2018.3.

    Just letting everyone know the Android team has a PR under review for 2018.3. Not sure when this will get approved but it is moving forward.

    It's great to hear that. I'm also working on a project with version 2018.3, and currently waiting for this fix.

    Same here! This bug is especially annoying in VR as well. The mobile Input field appears as a green box in the lower field of view. Theres no way to turn it off right now. The fix should definitely be ported to 2018.4 LTS (Long Term Support)!
    Can you please provide us information on when this will be approved/released?

    The back port landed yesterday. This will be available in 2018.4.3f.

    I can hide the mobile input on Android using 'Hide Mobile Input', but then the back button stops working... The app becomes non-responsive and I need to type something on the keyboard again for the app start working again.

    (The back button works fine when the 'Hide Mobile Input' is off)

    Unity version 2019.4.5
    on Google Pixel 2

    When I use "hide mobile input", it works on some android phones and on at least one of them, the keyboard doesn't show up. I'm using Unity 2020.1..8f1. It doesn't work on OPPO RENO 4 LITE CPH2125 with Android 11. I have no idea what could be a problem, and if it's the only phone on which this doesn't work (I guess not). If i disable hide input, the keyboard shows up correctly.

    With Unity 2020.1.15f/TMP 3.0.3 the input field is hidden, but when you click in the place where the input field should be, such a selection occurs

    Can you suggest anything?

    Same issue on 2020.3.16. Did you find a solution?

    Edit: https://unity3d.com/unity/whats-new/2020.3.18 fixes that

    So I have made/found a custom script for moving my RectTrans up when the keyboard pops up:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. public class AdaptToVirtuelKeyboard : MonoBehaviour
    2. {
    3.     [SerializeField, HideInInspector]
    4.     private RectTransform rectTransform;
    5.  
    6.     [SerializeField]
    7.     private int debugKeyboardHeight;
    8.     private void OnValidate()
    9.     {
    10.         rectTransform = GetComponent<RectTransform>();
    11.     }
    12.     void Update()
    13.     {
    14.         int relativeKeyboardHeight;
    15.         if (Application.isPlaying)
    16.             relativeKeyboardHeight = VirsabiUtility.GetRelativeKeyboardHeight(rectTransform, true);
    17.         else
    18.             relativeKeyboardHeight = debugKeyboardHeight;
    19.  
    20.         rectTransform.anchoredPosition = new Vector2(0, relativeKeyboardHeight);
    21.     }
    22.  
    23.     public static int GetRelativeKeyboardHeight(RectTransform rectTransform, bool includeInput)
    24.     {
    25.          int keyboardHeight = GetKeyboardHeight(includeInput);
    26.          float screenToRectRatio = Screen.height / rectTransform.rect.height;
    27.          float keyboardHeightRelativeToRect = keyboardHeight / screenToRectRatio;
    28.  
    29.          return (int)keyboardHeightRelativeToRect;
    30.     }
    31.  
    32. private static int GetKeyboardHeight(bool includeInput)
    33.         {
    34. #if UNITY_EDITOR
    35.             return 0;
    36. #elif UNITY_ANDROID
    37.             using (AndroidJavaClass unityClass = new AndroidJavaClass("com.unity3d.player.UnityPlayer"))
    38.             {
    39.                 AndroidJavaObject unityPlayer = unityClass.GetStatic<AndroidJavaObject>("currentActivity").Get<AndroidJavaObject>("mUnityPlayer");
    40.                 AndroidJavaObject view = unityPlayer.Call<AndroidJavaObject>("getView");
    41.                 AndroidJavaObject dialog = unityPlayer.Get<AndroidJavaObject>("mSoftInputDialog");
    42.                 if (view == null || dialog == null)
    43.                     return 0;
    44.                 var decorHeight = 0;
    45.                 if (includeInput)
    46.                 {
    47.                     AndroidJavaObject decorView = dialog.Call<AndroidJavaObject>("getWindow").Call<AndroidJavaObject>("getDecorView");
    48.                     if (decorView != null)
    49.                         decorHeight = decorView.Call<int>("getHeight");
    50.                 }
    51.                 using (AndroidJavaObject rect = new AndroidJavaObject("android.graphics.Rect"))
    52.                 {
    53.                     view.Call("getWindowVisibleDisplayFrame", rect);
    54.                     return Screen.height - rect.Call<int>("height") + decorHeight;
    55.                 }
    56.             }
    57. #elif UNITY_IOS
    58.             return (int)TouchScreenKeyboard.area.height;
    59. #endif
    60.         }
    61. }

    This is nice as the background can stay locked while only the relevant UI is moved.

    But when using "Hide Mobile Input" the screen is still pushed up.
    And when setting the content type to AutoCorrected, you can see on build that the lines are still there. It's just the background and the text that is not rendered. The lines are still extending the rect of the native keyboard....

    This honestly looks like whoever made the native integration did a quick hack of hiding the text and background rather than a sound solution?

    Edit:
    I made a bool to try disabling "includeInput" from the movement and that works but the lines still shows up;
