Forget about default textbox restrictions, you can create sprites atop of the textbox
  • Hello guys!

    I have created a mobile word game, that use a textbox input. It really works fine, the only problem that I encountered is that many people use a custom keyboard like "SwiftKey".

    The problem is that the keyboard height is really different and now is overlapping the input textbox. I will post 2 screenshots, with normal and custom keyboard.

    This and this

    So, to get rid of this, I have 2 different options, in my opinion.

    1. I could try a plugin that makes the keyboard the default one. (sadly I found one for IOS only - ... -keyboards)

    2. If I won't find something similar to #1, I could try to get the keyboard height, and automatically resize the rest of layout.

    I saw this in a game named "94%" and I'll post 2 screenshots to understand better how it works.

    This and this

    3. The last idea, is to create a virtual keyboard. This is pretty easy, but the only thing that is bothering me is the "cursor", the letter selector.

    What I mean is, if I want to write down "Water", and accidentally wrote down "Waer" (typo), normally, I press between the 2 letters and type the wanted letter. I really don't know how can I do this.

    If you guys could help me, or have any idea, would be great!

    Thank you kindly!

    Edit: The 3rd option would be the best if possible.. :)

    Best you can do, its resize when keyboards come.
