Resize the screen when keyboard appears


You can create an outlet of the bottom auto layout constraint of your table view.

Then simply use this code:

func keyboardWillShow(sender: NSNotification) {    let info = sender.userInfo!    var keyboardSize = (info[UIKeyboardFrameEndUserInfoKey] as! NSValue).cgRectValue.height    bottomConstraint.constant = keyboardSize - bottomLayoutGuide.length    let duration: TimeInterval = (info[UIKeyboardAnimationDurationUserInfoKey] as! NSNumber).doubleValue    UIView.animate(withDuration: duration) { self.view.layoutIfNeeded() }}func keyboardWillHide(sender: NSNotification) {    let info = sender.userInfo!    let duration: TimeInterval = (info[UIKeyboardAnimationDurationUserInfoKey] as! NSNumber).doubleValue    bottomConstraint.constant = 0    UIView.animate(withDuration: duration) { self.view.layoutIfNeeded() }}

If you have trouble creating the bottom constraint:

In storyboard

  • Select your search bar.
  • At the corner in the lower right you'll see 3 icons. Click the middle one looking like |-[]-|.
  • At the top of that popup, there are 4 boxes. Enter 0 at the one for the bottom.
  • Constraint created!

Now you can drag it to your view controller and add it as an outlet.

Another solution is to set the tableView.contentInset.bottom. But I haven't done that before. If you prefer that, I can try to explain it.

Using inset:

func keyboardWillShow(sender: NSNotification) {    let info = sender.userInfo!    let keyboardSize = (info[UIKeyboardFrameEndUserInfoKey] as! NSValue).cgRectValue.height    tableView.contentInset.bottom = keyboardSize}func keyboardWillHide(sender: NSNotification) {    tableView.contentInset.bottom = 0}

You can try this code for setting the inset. I haven't tried it myself yet, but it should be something like that.

2020 UPDATE

Correctly using a constraint...

There is only one way to properly handle this mess in iOS.

  1. Paste KUIViewController below in to your project,

  2. Create a constraint which is very simply to the "bottom of your content".

  3. Drag that constraint to bottomConstraintForKeyboard

KUIViewController will automatically and correctly resize your content view at all times.

Absolutely everything is totally automatic.

All Apple behaviors are handled correctly in the standard way, such as dismissing by taps, etc etc.

You are 100% completely done.

So "which view should you resize?"

You can not use .view ...

Because ... you cannot resize the .view in iOS!!!!!! Doh!

Simply make a UIView named "holder". It sits inside .view.

Put everything of yours inside "holder".

Holder will of course have four simple constraints top/bottom/left/right to .view.

That bottom constraint to "holder" is indeed bottomConstraintForKeyboard.

You're done.

Send a bill to the cliient and go drinking.

There is nothing more to do.

class KUIViewController: UIViewController {    // KBaseVC is the KEYBOARD variant BaseVC. more on this later    @IBOutlet var bottomConstraintForKeyboard: NSLayoutConstraint!    @objc func keyboardWillShow(sender: NSNotification) {        let i = sender.userInfo!        let s: TimeInterval = (i[UIResponder.keyboardAnimationDurationUserInfoKey] as! NSNumber).doubleValue        let k = (i[UIResponder.keyboardFrameEndUserInfoKey] as! NSValue).cgRectValue.height        bottomConstraintForKeyboard.constant = k        // Note. that is the correct, actual value. Some prefer to use:        // bottomConstraintForKeyboard.constant = k - bottomLayoutGuide.length        UIView.animate(withDuration: s) { self.view.layoutIfNeeded() }    }    @objc func keyboardWillHide(sender: NSNotification) {        let info = sender.userInfo!        let s: TimeInterval = (info[UIResponder.keyboardAnimationDurationUserInfoKey] as! NSNumber).doubleValue        bottomConstraintForKeyboard.constant = 0        UIView.animate(withDuration: s) { self.view.layoutIfNeeded() }    }    @objc func clearKeyboard() {        view.endEditing(true)        // (subtle iOS bug/problem in obscure cases: see note below        // you may prefer to add a short delay here)    }    func keyboardNotifications() {        NotificationCenter.default.addObserver(self,            selector: #selector(keyboardWillShow),            name: UIResponder.keyboardWillShowNotification,            object: nil)        NotificationCenter.default.addObserver(self,            selector: #selector(keyboardWillHide),            name: UIResponder.keyboardWillHideNotification,            object: nil)    }    override func viewDidLoad() {        super.viewDidLoad()        keyboardNotifications()        let t = UITapGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: #selector(clearKeyboard))        view.addGestureRecognizer(t)        t.cancelsTouchesInView = false    }}

Simply ...

Use KUIViewController anywhere a keyboard might appear.

class AddCustomer: KUIViewController, SomeProtocol {class EnterPost: KUIViewController {class EditPurchase: KUIViewController {

On those screens absolutely everything is now completely automatic regarding the keyboard.

You're done.

Phew.


*Minor footnote - background clicks correctly dismiss the keyboard. That includes clicks which fall on your content. This is correct Apple behavior. Any unusual variation from that would take a huge amount of very anti-Apple custom programming.

*Extremely minor footnote - so, any and all buttons on the screen will work 100% correctly every time. However in the INCREDIBLY obscure case of nested (!) container views inside nested (!) scroll views with nested (!) page view containers (!!!!), you may find that a button will seemingly not work. This seems to be basically a (obscure!) problem in current iOS. If you encounter this incredibly obscure problem, fortunately the solution is simple. Looking at the function clearKeyboard(), simply add a short delay, you're done.

@objc func clearKeyboard() {    DispatchQueue.main.asyncAfter(deadline: .now() + .milliseconds(100)) {        self.view.endEditing(true)    }}

(A great tip from user @wildcat12 https://stackoverflow.com/a/57698468/294884 )


From @Fattie 's message:

A detail - (unfortunately) clicks on your content will also dismiss the keyboard. (They both get the event.) However, this is almost always correct behavior; give it a try. There is no reasonable was to avoid this, so forget about it and go with the Apple-flow.

This can be solved by implementing the following UIGestureRecognizerDelegate's method:

func gestureRecognizer(_ gestureRecognizer: UIGestureRecognizer, shouldReceive touch: UITouch) -> Bool {        return !(touch.view?.isKind(of: UIControl.self) ?? true)    }

That way, if the user touches any UIControl (UIButton, UITextField, etc.) the gesture recognizer won't call the clearKeyboard() method.

For this to work, remember to subclass UIGestureRecognizerDelegate either at class definition or with an extension. Then, in viewDidLoad() you should assign the gesture recognizer delegate as self.


Ready to copy and paste code:

// 1. Subclass UIGestureRecognizerDelegateclass KUIViewController: UIViewController, UIGestureRecognizerDelegate {@IBOutlet var bottomConstraintForKeyboard: NSLayoutConstraint!func keyboardWillShow(sender: NSNotification) {    let i = sender.userInfo!    let k = (i[UIKeyboardFrameEndUserInfoKey] as! NSValue).cgRectValue.height    bottomConstraintForKeyboard.constant = k - bottomLayoutGuide.length    let s: TimeInterval = (i[UIKeyboardAnimationDurationUserInfoKey] as! NSNumber).doubleValue    UIView.animate(withDuration: s) { self.view.layoutIfNeeded() }}func keyboardWillHide(sender: NSNotification) {    let info = sender.userInfo!    let s: TimeInterval = (info[UIKeyboardAnimationDurationUserInfoKey] as! NSNumber).doubleValue    bottomConstraintForKeyboard.constant = 0    UIView.animate(withDuration: s) { self.view.layoutIfNeeded() }}func keyboardNotifications() {    NotificationCenter.default.addObserver(self,        selector: #selector(keyboardWillShow),        name: Notification.Name.UIKeyboardWillShow,        object: nil)    NotificationCenter.default.addObserver(self,        selector: #selector(keyboardWillHide),        name: Notification.Name.UIKeyboardWillHide,        object: nil)}func clearKeyboard() {    view.endEditing(true)}override func viewDidLoad() {    super.viewDidLoad()    keyboardNotifications()    let t = UITapGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: #selector(clearKeyboard))    view.addGestureRecognizer(t)    t.cancelsTouchesInView = false    // 2. Set the gesture recognizer's delegate as self    t.delegate = self}// 3. Implement this method from UIGestureRecognizerDelegatefunc gestureRecognizer(_ gestureRecognizer: UIGestureRecognizer, shouldReceive touch: UITouch) -> Bool {    return !(touch.view?.isKind(of: UIControl.self) ?? true)}}
