How to use

1, ChatKeyboardLayout

make your layout get keyboard ability.

<cn.hadcn.keyboard.ChatKeyboardLayout
        android:id="@+id/kv_bar"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_below="@id/toolbar"
        app:showRightIcon="true"
        app:keyboardStyle="chat_style"
        app:sendButtonBackground="@drawable/send_button_bg"
        app:sendButtonTextColor="#FFFFFF">
        ...your layout
</cn.hadcn.keyboard.ChatKeyboardLayout>

Notice: You can only put one child view in ChatKeyboardLayout.

2, Style and Custom

There are three styles you can set.

chat_style text_emoticon text_only

You can use app:keyboardStyle in xml to set or setKeyboardStyle(@KeyboardStyle int style) method to set, once you set, the keyboard style will change.

There are also some attributes you can custom the icons.

app:sendButtonBackground custom send button background

app:faceIcon custom keyboard bar face icon, you can use state_selected to distinguish emoticon layout pop or not state.

app:showRightIcon when you set the style as chat_style, the right place will just show send button in default, you should set this attribute as true to show the right multi media icon.

… more you need find out yourself in demo.

3, Emoticons and Stickers

if (!ChatKeyboardLayout.isEmoticonInitSuccess(this)) {
    List<EmoticonEntity> entities = new ArrayList<>();
    entities.add(new EmoticonEntity("emoticons/xhs", EmoticonBase.Scheme.ASSETS));
    entities.add(new EmoticonEntity("emoticons/tusiji", EmoticonBase.Scheme.ASSETS));
    ChatKeyboardLayout.initEmoticonsDB(this, true, entities);
}

Notice: Add the code above before the ChatKeyboardLayout used, better in onCreate of Application

4, Keyboard Listener

public interface OnChatKeyBoardListener {
        /**
         * When send button clicked
         *
         * @param text content in input area
         */
        void onSendButtonClicked(String text);

        /**
         * When user input or delete text in input area
         *
         * @param text changing text
         */
        void onInputTextChanged(String text);

        /**
         * Recording button action {@link RecordingAction}
         *
         * @param action action
         */
        void onRecordingAction(RecordingAction action);

        /**
         * When sticker defined by developer clicked
         *
         * @param tag sticker tag
         * @param uri sticker location uri
         */
        void onUserDefEmoticonClicked(String tag, String uri);

        /**
         * when keyboard popped or back, get the pixels of the height include keyboard bar
         *
         * @param height pixel height
         */
        void onKeyboardHeightChanged(int height);

        /**
         * when left icon clicked, this will be called
         *
         * @param view view of clicked
         * @return true, won't execute default actions; false, execute default actions
         */
        boolean onLeftIconClicked(View view); 

        /**
         * when right icon clicked, this will be called
         *
         * @param view view of clicked
         * @return true, won't execute default actions; false, execute default actions
         */
        boolean onRightIconClicked(View view);
}

You can use SimpleOnChatKeyboardListener instead of the interface above, so you can just implement these call back method you use.

These you should know

  1. Make sure the bottom of ChatKeyboardLayout align the screen bottom.
  2. Make sure the height of ChatKeyboardLayout be at least 2/3 of you screen height.
