Help Levon@Amazon!!

My team is building a platform in Unity for Fire TV. This is the first fire TV project they are working on. The Issue we are dealing with is that when attempting to log-in or do a search within our application the Amazon Keyboard UI opens over our designs. It opens with every input field. Any ideas on how to stop this?

Can you give us some help and direction on how to solve this issue?

Hi Hopessong,

Thanks for posting! If I understood your question correctly, you don't want to see the keyboard at all? In that case simply disable the "Send Navigation Events" on the EventSystem manager component.

Or are you asking about not showing the standard Amazon keyboard UI, but instead you want to see a different type of a keyboard UI? As far as I know you can build your own keyboard and replace the standard one with your own. This Stack Overflow post provides an answer and additional resources on how to build a custom keyboard in Android: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9577304/how-to-make-an-android-custom-keyboard, and the following Unity Answers post has a solution for a custom keyboard built directly in Unity: https://answers.unity.com/questions/981917/unity-gui-input-field-keyboard-issues-android.html -- Thanks!
