Answered question

In android you can use InputMethodManager to hide a virtual keyboard. A simple code sample is shown below.

EditText editText = (EditText) findViewById(;  
InputMethodManager inputMethod = (InputMethodManager)getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
inputMethod.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getWindowToken(), 0);
