Check the keyboard is present on the page or not using java

when I do send keys some times the key borad opens some times not. After doing the sendkeys, I have to click on the submit button that is hidden under the keyborad. Since the keyboard appears sometimes I am not not able to click on the button. So I want to check whether the keyboard is present on the page or not using java code. Please help me on the same.

Hello, have you tried detect keyboard in any way?
Also for which platform are you writing tests? Android or iOS?

Hey Thank for the reply. I don’t know how to detect the key board.
I am writing the tests on Android.

Hi Degard,

Could you please me as soon as possible…I need to complete some tasks

what you see in uiautomatorviewer? or appium inspector?

I am unable to detect the keyboard from the uiautomatorviewer

Also you can use driver.hideKeyboard(); before tap on Submit button.
If you cant detect keyboard Just wrap hideKeyboard in try catch:

     try {
                } catch (Exception e) {
