To hide soft keyboard, use


as an attribute in AndroidManifest.xml

Programmatically we do it as below

if (view != null) {
    InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
    imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(v.getWindowToken(), InputMethodManager.HIDE_NOT_ALWAYS);

android:windowSoftInputMode="stateHidden" is the attribute of Activity tag in AndroidManifest.xml

<activity  android:name=".YourActivity" android:windowSoftInputMode="stateHidden">
