Description Jonathan Pryor 2013-01-24 15:25:32 UTC
One of these is not quite like the other:

http://androidapi.xamarin.com/?link=M%3aAndroid.Views.InputMethods.InputMethodManager.ToggleSoftInputFromWindow(Android.OS.IBinder%2cAndroid.Views.InputMethods.ShowSoftInputFlags%2cAndroid.Views.InputMethods.HideSoftInputFlags)

http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/inputmethod/InputMethodManager.html#toggleSoftInputFromWindow(android.os.IBinder, int, int)

The Java method docs state:

> showFlags: 
> Provides additional operating flags. May be 0 or have the SHOW_IMPLICIT, SHOW_FORCED bit set.

`showFlags` is the mapped to the ShowSoftInputFlags type:
http://androidapi.xamarin.com/index.aspx?link=T%3aAndroid.Views.InputMethods.ShowSoftInputFlags

>   public enum ShowSoftInputFlags {
>     None = 0,
>     Explicit = 1,
>     Forced = 2,
>   }

The Java docs refer to SHOW_IMPLICIT. Where's the Implicit field?

I believe that InputMethodManager.ToggleSoftInputFromWindow() should NOT be using ShowSoftInputFlags. I believe it should be using ShowFlags:

http://androidapi.xamarin.com/index.aspx?link=T%3aAndroid.Views.InputMethods.ShowFlags
>   public enum ShowFlags {
>     Forced = 2,
>     Implicit = 1,
>   }

Probably unrelated note: What happened to InputMethod? There's ~nothing there!

http://androidapi.xamarin.com/?link=T%3aAndroid.Views.InputMethods.InputMethod%2f*

But there certainly is in Java:
