Runtime for Android - using a physical keyboard and hiding the virtual keyboard

Hello and Happy Holidays

I want to run an experiment (a simple two-choice task)
on an Android Phone which is connected to a physical USB keyboard.
Is there a way to hide the virtual keyboard?

P.S. (1) I cannot use the touch screen becasue the idea is to have the cellphone inside a VR-glasses.
P.S (2) I tried a USB mouse and the problem was that the right click is registered as "escape" and the scroll
wasn't recognized.



  • I just found a way (if anyone else needs to do the same):
    I installed an app called "Null Keyboard" (you don't see an icon or anything, just the name of that keyboard in the list of keyboards you have)
    I selected the null keyboard as default
    and that's it!
