showSoftInputFromInputMethod method from the
InputMethodManager class is deprecated in Android P. As per the documentation, we should be using the
InputMethodService.requestShowSelf(int) method for Android P and above.
Now the question is how can we get the reference for the class
InputMethodService. I tried creating a new object and calling
requestShowself() on it but it doesn't work.
InputMethodService inputMethodService = new InputMethodService(); inputMethodService.requestShowSelf(0);
How can we use the suggested alternative for this deprecation for API 28 and above?
