I'm not sure this will work, but if your application's top-level view creates a hidden text view then calls "[textView becomeFirstResponder];" then responded to UITextViewTextDidChangeNotifications you might be able to pick up the control keys entered in the text field. The downside there is that you'd have to suppress the keyboard popping up if no external keyboard is attached and you don't want to offer any direct text input.

control characters are not passed by that protocol. wouldn't make sense, either. keeping the keyboard down doesn't work without private api.

The only (valid) way to show the keyboard is to have a textfield that is first responder. You can hide it and make it first responder programmatically by calling becomeFirstResponder on the hidden textfield.

You can create a UITextView programmatically by doing something like this (assume aRect and view exist)

var textView = [[[UITextView alloc] initWithFrame:aRect] autorelease];
[view addSubview:textView];

[textView becomeFirstResponder];

You could place a hidden UITextField off screen, and tell it to becomeFirstResponder this will show the keyboard.

Then you can listen for the text did change notification that the text field posts and do what you need in there.

The notification is posted whenever a key is tapped, including the delete key.

For esilver: you can do this without resigning first responder by having a different textfield becomeFirstResponder and then having the relevant textfield becomeFirstResponder. The keyboard will not move in this case, and not trigger any hide notifications. If you don't have any other textfields, create a dummy textfield and set it to hidden = YES.

-(void)tappedSendButton:(id)sender
{
    // This hack is in place to force auto-corrections to be applied
    // before the text is sent.
    [self.dummyTextField becomeFirstResponder];
    [self.toolbar.textView becomeFirstResponder];

    [self sendChatWithBody: [self.toolbar.textView.text copy]];
}

I had a BOOL to ignore the delegate keyboard will appear messages, but still left issues with an index in a table view re-updating with a visible animation. Thank you.

For anyone trying the dummy text field strategy, make sure it has the same parent superview or else becomefirstResponder will be ignored!

And don't forget to set the properties inputAccessoryView, inputView and keyboardType in the same values as a original UITextView to avoid unwanted keyboard events.

I'm assuming you've verified that your method is getting invoked after the view is placed on-screen.

A responder object only becomes the first responder if the current responder can resign first-responder status (canResignFirstResponder) and the new responder can become first responder.

You may call this method to make a responder object such as a view the first responder. However, you should only call it on that view if it is part of a view hierarchy. If the views window property holds a UIWindow object, it has been installed in a view hierarchy; if it returns nil, the view is detached from any hierarchy.

If none of this works, post some more code (such as where the method is being called from).

This problem also occurs when you modify the nextResponder on some object in the chain, so that the responder chain does not go to the UIWindow.

To finally make sure the keyboard was hidden, I had to make one of my views the first responder, and then immediately make it resign as per the function below:

-(void) hideKeyboardPlease{
   [uiTextTo becomeFirstResponder];
   [uiTextTo resignFirstResponder];
}
