Completely disable on-screen keyboard on MC9200

Hello everyone,

I would like to configure a kiosk mode allowing the user to use only the physical keyboard of the handheld scanner.

I'm using:

- EHS (Enterprise Home Screen v 2.6.1)

- Symbol MC9200 Handheld scanner (Android KitKat 4.4.1)

I've tried different settings/configs but the on-screen keyboard always pops up.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening, in kiosk mode?

Thank you.

Hi, I do not believe there is

Hi, I do not believe there is an out of box solution but others have used a null keyboard (i.e. a keyboard that does nothing) and used the MX UI manager to set the default input method (keyboard) to this 'null' keyboard, UI Manager - Zebra Technologies TechDocs .  Zebra do not offer a null keyboard but 3rd party ones are available.

we use a very small keyboard to allow switching.

We use this and it's very simple. the keyboard has one button that submits a form in our case. Having the one-button (rather than null keyboard) allows swapping back to a full keyboard when needed.

You can make default in android keyboard settings.

good luck.
