Navigator: virtualKeyboard property

Experimental: This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

Secure context: This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

The virtualKeyboard read-only property of the navigator interface returns a reference to the VirtualKeyboard instance object.

The VirtualKeyboard API gives developers control over the layout of their applications when the on-screen virtual keyboard appears and disappears on devices such as tablets, mobile phones, or other devices where a hardware keyboard may not be available.


A VirtualKeyboard object you can use to opt-out of the automatic virtual keyboard behavior, show or hide the virtual keyboard programmatically, and get the current position and size of the virtual keyboard.
