In my application there are some user input fields. Once the keyboard appears, some fields are hidden until I scroll using down arrow. How can I make sure the fields are visible. Is there a way to make the size small? Following code is from one layout file. How can I make it appear smaller so users can see everything.

I am not sure but try to understand the semantics of android:windowSoftInputMode attribute of the <activity> tag in the manifest file. Maybe that can help.

First of all I know its an old thread but I started it and I am still unable to find a solution for this so rather than starting a new thread I am continuing here. I hope bartender won't mind.

Monu, based on your reply I used windowSoftInputMode and it did help a little. but still one or two buttons are hidden. I want my page to become scrollable just like web pages. I don't expect the keyboard to not hide but if user scroll then it would be acceptable.

Thanks
Imad

I found the answer. I had to put my tablelayout inside scrollview.

Here is the new code in case it might help someone.
