View over keyboard

Sometimes We need more space when the keyboard it’s open, the solution can be to put a view over keyboard.

We try this way, we have to create a popup in our activity

public void showPopUpKeyboard() {
        mIsPopupVisible = true;
        // Initialize a new instance of LayoutInflater service
        LayoutInflater inflater = (LayoutInflater) getSystemService(LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);

        // Inflate the custom layout/view
        View customView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.popup_in_keyboard, null);


        mScrollView = (ScrollView) customView.findViewById(R.id.keyboard_layout_view);
        // Initialize a new instance of popup window
        mPopupWindow = new PopupWindow(
                customView,
                RelativeLayout.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT,
                RelativeLayout.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT
        );


        setSizeForSoftKeyboard();

        // Get a reference for the custom view close button
        Button closeButton = (Button) customView.findViewById(R.id.ib_close);

        // Set a click listener for the popup window close button
        closeButton.setOnClickListener((View view) -> {
                // Dismiss the popup window
                mIsPopupVisible = false;
                mPopupWindow.dismiss();
        });
        mPopupWindow.showAtLocation(mParentLayout, Gravity.CENTER, 0, 0);

    }

And to know our height of keyboard with getViewTreeObserver, you can put this code in our onCreate in Activity

mParentLayout.getViewTreeObserver().addOnGlobalLayoutListener(() -> {
                Rect r = new Rect();

                mParentLayout.getWindowVisibleDisplayFrame(r);

                int heightDiff = mParentLayout.getRootView().getHeight() - (r.bottom - r.top);
                if (heightDiff > 100) {
                    //enter your code here
                    if (mIsPopupVisible) {
                        keepKeyboard();
                        mIsPopupVisible = false;
                        mPopupWindow.dismiss();
                    }
                } else {
                    //enter code for hid
                }
        });

This is my screen in my popup screen, but you can changes whatever you want.
